Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2017-07-19 
Dirty Water Records – wow! Another dose of primo garage laced raw rawk. From the UK, these guys are contemporaries of Billy Childish, The Headcoats, and their sound has that raw sound that comes with experience and old school wisdom. Teaching the young whippersnappers how its done, these guys have been kicking in the doors since 1991. Bad assed. Play with Headcoats, Headcoatees, Holly Go Lightly, early Beatles, even Sun Studio era Elvis etc (12 bar themes abound), or other excellent afile garage. Lots of love scorned forlorn songs.

1)* (2:48) full on Headcoats/Billy Childish raw rawk and roll 2) (3:13) upbeat chugging in a 12 bar form 3) (2:53) another 12 bar frame, this one smacks of Hamburg era early Beatles 4) (2:45) a big romantic rhumba tone, vocal melodies and love theme really bring the Beatles, super cool organ in bridge 5)* (2:49) late 50’s Memphis comes to mind, female background vocs 6) (3:02) slower darker plod theme, bluesy harmonica 7)* (2:24) hard driving, urgent, punk edge 8)* (3:22) dark sneering angry hell hath no fury 9) (2:39) midpaced, another bitter love song 10)* (3:28) triplet waltzy bluesy dramatic sadness, pining for a woman 11) (2:30) simple 12 bar rockin with harmonica 12) (2:14) straightforward rocker 13)* (2:52) Memphis styled retro rock, rockabilly, nice 14) (2:18) title track: bad boy motorcycle rock
