Eleven splintery blues-rockers from ex-Dr. Feelgood mainstay John Wilkinson. Canvey Island's Dr. Feelgood were the last credible purveyors of British pub rock, lashing the late Lee Brilleaux’s tortured bark to Johnson’s distinctive razor-wire Telecastering to produce a visceral thrill only punk could eclipse.

Twenty-odd years later, Johnson is still to be found serving up Home Counties RKB in moist-carpeted venues up and down the land, as well as appearing alongside that other superannuated, end-of-the pier eccentric, John Otway. A shame, then, that this latest set pales by comparison with former glories. Despite virtuoso bassist Norman Watt-Roy (like Johnson, an ex-Blockhead) and the expected arsenal of fitful guitar licks, it's a desultory affair. The problem is Johnson’s voice : a graceless estuary monotone, despite swathes of reverb, which diminishes the slippery combo playing of "She’s Good Like That" and "The Beautiful Madrilena". "Some Kind Of Hero" - as the closing track has it - forced, on this evidence at least, to rest on dwindling laurels. **
