After the original third founding member, Mark “Porkchop” Holder left the band, keyboardist and vocalist James Leg and drummer Van Campbell continued as a two-piece of devastating power. Combining blues, soul, raw and frenetic punk energy with musical virtuosity and a deep knowledge of blues, gospel and rock and roll in all its various forms, they released three superb albums on the Alive label: Every Damn Time, A Touch Of Someone Else’s Class (a collection of covers) and Alive As Fuck! (recorded at the Masonic Hall in Covington, Kentucky).

Here’s a live version of their “Leave It In The Road”, recorded in Sydney in December 2008. Cracking!
