Not rare or anything, just super awesome. Indie celebs like Steve Malkmus et al have been championing this albums for the past few years once rock became 'cool' again. Too bad people have been sleeping on this for so long. These limeys started off as a pretty standard blues trio, who backed John Lee Hooker several times. But something happened and the purist roots faded and were replaced by more heavy experimentation. This album sounds pretty much how the Dirtbombs want to sound. I think they might even cover "Cherry Red," and that makes perfect sense. This is some powerful, yet tasteful and never over the top, shredding backed by a stone groove. If people claim Crapton is God, they're worshiping in the wrong temple. Give T.S. McPhee a listen for real enlightenment.
