GROANING, PASSIONATE GORILLA REACHED OUT AND TOUCHED MY SOUL
London Jules Holland Hootananny on December 31 2015
Sooo refreshing to find a group with a frontman with such energy, soul and the ability to dance in his own bubble of passion. Gritty, growling and chest pounding madness. This cute primate is first rate. Can't wait for a UK tour to be announced. About time.... a group with original personality, no gimmicks, just brilliant music. Love the knee wobbling, earthy dance moves.
