I enjoyed this album. It has something that made me sit up and take note. There is a real, wild at times, drive here; a clear confidence that comes from experience and years of live gigging in the hard underbelly of the blues/rock underground club scene. This marks the third recorded outing of this powerful guy and his hard-hitting vocals, guitar and harp. His last album, Cocos Corner, gained some critical acclaim and added to his fan-base on its release in 2013. With ‘Voodoo Charm’, Laundry aims to capitalise on that momentum while moving both him and his music forward to a wider, more mainstream, mature blues/rock audience.
In many ways this CD delivers the goods but at times there seems to be a mild, forgivable, bit of slippage. All titles come from Laundry with production by Nick Mailing, who co-wrote one track, The Revenge of Rock N Roll, and also brings some tasty guitar, Moog and Keys to the affair. There are a couple of tracks on the album that seem unfocused and which have a fuzzy-muzzy feel, and one track, Nobody’s Business, that simply seems to almost fall apart towards the tail-end. That said, however, there remains the strong impression of a man and a band striving to bring the dynamism and riotous dynamism of a live, beery club performance to a studio presentation. Good enough and worth catching but probably best as a live act. It’s impossible, of course, to catch the name and not think of the other great Long John of UK blues music. Sadly, Laundry’s voice, powerful though it is, can’t quite stack up to the comparison. (IAIN PATIENCE)
