Needle Gun

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steven E. McDonald
Here it is: Guy Forsyth knows how to provide a damn good time by way of gutbucket blues playing. He plays a mean slide guitar himself, and backs that up with the odd burst of dirty blues harp playing, and he has a voice that's a step and a half from Tom Waits, so the vocals have lots of character. The 14 songs on the album are played full force, and the band is as tight as can be -- the energy level is terrific, and the album as a whole produces the sort of excitement that makes for a great party record.
