REVEREND & THE MAKERS – SINGLE REVIEW

Reverend & The Makers – Too Tough To Die (Cooking Vinyl)
Reverend & The Makers - Too Tough To Die

Release Date: Out Now

Unlikely Sheffield heroes Reverend & The Makers are back and boy do they sound good. New single ‘Too Tough To Die’ is a rock beast of a tune that was forged in the 70s and owes as much to the American good time bands of the time as it does to Motorhead and Black Sabbath. The distorted preaching of the Reverend (John McClure to his mum) is breathless and desperate, like a man with something to say. The guitar riff has a groove so deep you’d expect to see a glacier at the end of it and the drums, well, it’s that loose 70s vibe again and its glorious. This is the sound of a band having a great time and that’s reflected in the travelogue video. All in all, this is a great comeback track but let’s not call it a comeback, I’ve a feeling these guys are just getting loosened up for the big fight.

29th September – Looe Music Festival, Cornwall
14th October – The Garage, Glasgow
25th October – Electric Ballroom, London
