The Greasy Slicks : The Garage [Live]

From the very first strum and ratatatat of the snare,

The Greasy Slicks tether you to the barriers, grab you by your erect nipples and gradually and continually increase the pressure right up until the last orgasmic splintering crash of wood against cymbal.

Hard to believe that they were the first band up and playing the 7.30 support slot for The Carnabys,greasy slicks by Carl Batson b because a tingling bottom-spanking set of blues rock ‘n’ roll was delivered at The Garage by Jack Kendrew (guitar and vocals), Nathan Rasdall (bass and piano) and Rian O’Grady (drums, percussion and BVs). Delivered with such precision and professionalism, you’d believe they’d been on the circuit for the past ten years.

Kendrew played his Fender with such passion and intensity one imagined blood vessels bursting one by one throughout his knotted frame. Apart from ramming the guitar neck into the amp or whipping it with chains a la Marc Bolan, nothing more could be done with that poor spent instrument.

There are no shades of grey here, it’s pure high definition vibrovision; The Greasy Slicks are a headline act, even if security doesn’t recognize their drummer.
