Six songs from Hardwire Speers. Blues with a twist of jazz and a helping of rock.
"The combo of Rob Maciak (drums) and David Robinson (stand-up and electric bass) provides a bedrock of blues heavily tinged with jazz textures. The album also features some lovely sax and clarinet by Eugene Kirton on several songs. All this and the often fiery guitar playing of Neil (aka Hardwire) Speers, whose vocals are reminiscent of Mose Allison and chord choices lean to jump blues, results in an album full of cool grooves, reverberating textures and gritty back-alley blues guitar."
