“One of my complaints when I leave a show, even by a group I like, is the lack of memorable tunes. James Straight and the Wide Stance doesn't have this problem. Every song they have has a hook and a distinctive personality. I've highlighted a few here but everyone is a rewarding listen. Joe Fagan's guitar always steals the show. His hallmark is a short catchy phrase etched with a rusty corrosive tone. It's a never failing formula. I see guitarists with thousand dollar guitars they can't tune, Joe takes a cheap knockoff and creates memorable riffs left and right. Aut Powell on bass and Laurel Blanchard on drums are one the best rhythm sections in town but alas this raw recording doesn't capture their full power. I don't know why, the mix? It's best to turn it up (never a bad idea anyway) and they can be heard a bit better. This mash up of low culture and excellent song writing is the great CD we hoped we would get every time we heard them play live.”
