Not some bullshit money grabbing pastiche of what was, but a genuine heartfelt collection of bang-on JAMC proto-classics, these crafty buggers haven’t forgotten a thing over the years, as is evidenced with tunes like Pure Poor, a rambling blues number, chaotic, fuzzed and discordant.

As ever incorporating pop Americana with typical overdriven Glaswegian twists, Glasgow Eyes is precise and abrupt like the kids want, but sufficiently rawk ‘n’ roll to please older fans. Getting down and surf dirty with Girl 71 bobbing in sun-blissed waves, it’s all set with some proper Mary Chain soul, closed out by the prog-cognate Hey Lou Reid reverberating in heroin chic. Back comb those bedraggled locks and drag on your drain pipes for a very welcome return.
