A few weeks ago when my son and I interviewed Virgil And The Accelerators before their superb gig at Touchline Live Music, Essex (see my review #83); we met their new bass player Joel Wildgoose. He is also guitarist and vocalist with The River Chickens. and he handed me a copy of their EP ‘Coming Through’ for review.

Its a five track EP of original songs, all penned by the band themselves – and its very good indeed. Its a couple of years old or more now, so I won’t do a full review, but I must say that every track is a good’n. I very much like the obligatory slow, thoughtful song ‘Crazy Town’; but I particularly like ‘Alley Cat Antics’. This is a well constructed rocker, with twin harmonised lead guitars (a la Wishbone / Lizzy), great dual vocals, and superb solo. Generally a great piece of rock music.

The CD comes in a simple card slip-case, with some basic info on the songs and the band; and it has an odd, but intriguing cover illustration. If you’re up for a short, sharp dose of good quality Blues-Rock, then this EP is worth getting hold of for your collection. Recommended. PTMQ
