ALVIN GIBBS and THE DISOBEDIENT SERVANTS - Ghost Train (Single) *A REVIEW*)
I always look forward to Alvin’s songs on Urban Dogs and UK Subs albums, and wonder when he'll release a solo album, well the time is almost now, as he's just putting the finishing touches to Your Disobedient Servant, but as a taster for it he's releasing a single, and pretty yummy it is to! Ghost Train and Clumsy Fingers are a couple of ballsy hard hitting righteous and riotous rockers; Thumping drums, pounding bass, flesh cutting guitars and a great vocal performance of pure power and passion, with some intelligent lyrics, a real foot tapping, fist thumping, brain thinking slab of pumpkin coloured 7”vinyl. Alvin's not alone on this venture, his 'backing band' The Disobedient Servants is made up of guest musicians Brian James (Lords of The New Church/The Damned) Leigh Heggarty (The Ruts) Steve Critall (The Godfathers) and Jamie Oliver (UK Subs) great performances from all of 'em. The Single, with a cover designed by Gaye Black (The Adverts) is out on Halloween (31st Oct) but be quick it's limited to 300 copies only. Available to pre-order now from the magnificent Time and Matter Records. You'll be in for a treat!
