Slow and yearning guitarscoupled with theIan Hunter vocal style of lead man Lenn Leonard in thefirstsong ‘Sitting On The Fence’, slowlygets you buzzing, as the twanging bass line jolts along and helps you grow into the listening experience of this emotive four track tempter.An impressive feathas already been achieved by thisWarringtonian quintet who have survived and stuck togetherthrough the fads and fashions of music that has seen bands split up more times than a celebrity couple,yet these guysmatured together, as this funky, polished and crafted offering testifies.
Red Mojo'semotiveness reaches a high point in the provocative and heart tugging acoustic led ‘When You’re Not Around’, as depth and passion pour out from the vocals of Len with the emotion building to coincide with a strong guitar accompaniment that lifts the track to jive friendly levels. They retain an authentic rawness that seepsthrough in ‘Kaleidoscope Land’; soundinga bit like Kasabian on come down, buteven more thoughtful. This earnestoutfit has added a coat of varnish to their already polished sound and look set to make a bold bid to win over a varietymusic fans.
