Nothing Short of a Bullet

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason MacNeil
After an indefinite hiatus, a series of shows in the Toronto and Buffalo area in November 2000 sparked the resulting magic on this impressive live compilation. With a more mature and aged delivery, lead singer Ron Hawkins sounds eerily similar to Elvis Costello in his early days with the Attractions, specifically on songs such as the infectious and pleasing "Gamble."
