Review Type: 

2nd Full length of this United kingdom powertrio, who musically are firmly rooted in the seventies early eighthies,   “check’em before you wreck’ em“ is a  blood sweat? no tears but rather the smell of stale beer in a pub before there was such a thing called a smoking ban.  Songs like “2 Tonne f*ckboot”, “shaker your head” or “the thicker the better”- (is that a Motorhead’s damage case reference riff by any chance - make it clear for all to hear, the Admiral is not interested in having the most up to date technical luggage on his ship. No sir, he prefers it to be equipped, simple loud and effective. just as the heroes of the past like  Motorhead, Budgie and why not…..Vardis  did it and still do.
