Hard Stuff

For a British band named Hard Stuff, I expected this album to be a little less formulaic and more "experimental" hard-driving rock. It certainly doesn't fail as a straight forward hard rock album with no dangerous influences such as the blues to muddle the sound, but...a rock album is what the singer and drummer, John Cann (and Paul Hammond) formally of Atomic Rooster probably wanted. It departs from the soul and blues drenched rock albums of the early 70's. Solid album. If you've ever liked the euphoria of a bloody nose, this album is for you. Bolex Dementia by Hard Stuff
