BEAST with a GUN "Wicked Ways" 7inch

With all the sub-genre's of sub-genres today sometimes it's just kinda nice to hear just a garage rock single like the kinds that dotted the 90's musical landscape from time to time. Nothing challenging or trying to be "out there" but nothing to trad or playing dress up either. Just straight up, rowdy, not all that good lookin' and smelling like cheap ass booze rock-n-roll.
Hailing from the UK seaside resort town of Great Yarmouth Beast with a Gun fit the bill with this two songer. "Wicked Ways" is a one of those based around one of those trash twang riffs that Jack "Oblivian" Yarber comes up with topped with a gruff throated holler about a lady that is oh so good at doing her man wrong. "Uh Huh Honey" gives off a vibe of some Cramps fans kicking around "Shakin' All Over" as if it's a ragged but trusty soccer ball.
