DAMAGE CONTROL Raw (SJPCD311)
High quality blues rock and no mistake. With any luck this will lead to some live shows and a second album. ****
Jason Ritchie, www.getreadytorock.com (October 2009)
The songs here are slick and melodic with their roots heavily in the blues rock scene of the 70's...

With members of the
band belonging to a back catalogue comprising of the likes of Robert Plant, UFO
and Uriah Heep...It's worth the wait
Wow, what a line-up
this is!...Putting their album Raw into your CD player is like lighting blue
touch paper and not having the sense to retreat back at a safe distance
If you have spent any
time whirling your sweat drenched locks until catherine wheels of droplets
sparkled in the strobe of an otherwise dimly lit beer sticky rock club floor,
this is an album for you. If you cannot help finger imaginary chords during
guitar breaks or throw your head back and mime rock god wails as you listen to
your old LPs, then this album is for you.
Raw has its peaks - you
can imagine the swagger of Savage Song blowing the roof off a rock club...
Raw, brutal and cruel
does NOT mean that the band loses all sense of melody...
blues-inspired hard rock, full of stomping rhythms and fuzzy, overdriven
guitars. Not totally unlike ZZ Top, but perhaps more updated and modern.
A supergroup somewast
made up of Drummer, Chris Slade (ex-AC.DC, Asia, Uriah & Heep);
Vocalist/Guitarist, Robin George & Pete Way (of UFO).
