Kit - No Mercy
|Kit - No Mercy|
I have to admit to seeing Kit (Kit Walters to give him his full name) and thinking "he looks like a bit of a ponce". And then 'No Mercy' kicks and boy did my preconceptions get blown out of the window like a car passenger without a seat belt during a head on collision. This single might only be two minutes long but it starts like Johnny Cash singing a funeral lament in a cold, dark prison cell as Kit's treacle thick voice breathes out from the shadows with only the clank of a tambourine (or is that shackles) for company. Half way through the song kicks in to life and takes the form of a blues infused rock'n'roll stomper that smells of leather, grease, burnt matches and whiskey breath. Finally, we have an American who understands rock'n'roll again. Worth waiting for.
