Three piece Mugger Dave kick off their debut album with an brilliant intro that suggests this is an actual event. Keys, acoustic guitar and immaculate harmonies build up to a full rock explosion.
It’s a good old guitar driven rock n roll album, mixed throughout with harmonies and decent melodies, add a little dash of punk and perhaps even a trickle of ELO in a modern setting and you’re sorted.
Along with previous singles Crawl Up’ and ‘Got a lot on my mind’, the band mix up tempo and slower tempo-ed tracks throughout the album. ‘End Meat’ deserves a mention, catchy hooks, memorable refrain.. contender for a next single perhaps.
It’s a definite grower, sit down with headphones on for 48 minutes, its practically the same length as one half of a game in this boring World Cup… you’ll be entertained.
