Recorded between London's Dean Street Studios, Paris' Sentier Studios and Jenkins' bathroom on the Rue de Minilmontant the record retains enough scruffy edges and reverb to charm; the corrosive, gritty guitar layers often yearning to be pop songs. To quote BBC London's Gary Crowley, "this is back to basics rock & roll", capturing the beauty and simplicity of punk. Jenkins' formidable force however is his intellect, co-conspirator Robbie Heart's slices of raw and infectious post-punk disguise a confessional, introspective and generation defining tale of woe, delivered with complete conviction.
Jenkins' songwriting owes to traditional rock & roll, blues and traditional folk influences, honed with the like of Chris Kimsey, Mick Jones and Richard Norris with whom he has worked extensively, though as much is to be credited to five years of tenacious touring through Europe and America.
