Eight Rounds Rapid - Love Your Work

  • Sale
  • Regular price £19.99


Southend stalwarts Eight Rounds Rapid release their third album 'Love Your Work'. Rooted in the infamous Canvey Island R'n'B tradition, Eight Rounds Rapid channel the fervour of Dr Feelgood, Wire, Gang of Four and Public Image Limited with their gritty tales of the Essex underworld. The band's songs are rooted in traditional rhythm and blues, but impulsive guitar from Simon Johnson (Wilko's son) and acerbic delivery from singer David Alexander make the act sound like John Cooper Clarke and Mark E Smith fighting in a Southend bus depot.

Mojo Sept 2020 4**** 'one of this country's most vital contemporary guitar-wielding combos'
