First cab off the rank is Ben Rogers latest offering – and it is GREAT!! It’s a powerful, cutting album with lots of twang, power chords, blues, jazz and good ol’ R&R. Favourite tracks are “Ain’t Over Yet”, which reminds me of “Kanga Roux”, “Tell Him” – the Exciters hit with vocals by Nikki – “Just fu**ing tell him!!”, “Lost In D Minor” with it‟s mid 60’s Ventures undertones, and “e-game” with guest Martin Cilia (he also guests on “Last Coffee”). All but 3 tracks were written by Ben, Nikki, and/or Denis. By the way, Ben, I hope the album wasn’t named after me! The album was launched at the Tiki Lounge & Bar on 9 November.
