Brain Distillers Corporation – Ugly Farm
(S/R – 2016)
Italian lot who come across like Black Stone Cherry and Black Label Society with a cruise through Alice in Chains territory now and again.
It’s hot to trot at times and out of this 10 tracker the standouts are the Wylde’esque opener ‘Marvin’; the very BSC ‘I Can Breath Again’; the deep Dixie like ‘Lost Friend’ (with Stef Burns of Alice Cooper’s band on guitar too) and ‘Maybe One Day’ that is sinister but intriguing. There’s plenty of southern sounds and a wee bit of grunge and it all moulds together pretty well.
You can’t help but like ‘em!
