His eclectic slide-style incorporates blues, country, rock and roll, Break - Gwyn Ashton - Two-Man Blues Army funk. There are plenty of sonic and tonal highlights for blues-rockers to get their teeth into.
This raw showcase of a telepathic duo exploring their blues Yen Town Band - Diverse Journey well worth cranking up.
The album Two-Man Blues Army roars into life with a raucous onslaught of soupy, swampy, scruff-of-the-neck revved up Hendrix-y electric guitar, as the appropriately-titled "Meltdown At The Hoo" hits top gear and hammers away at your senses! The whole album of killer tunes represents a definite melding of traditional blues-meets-thest century. More importantly, the record crackles with the raw, spontaneous energy of a live show, something often absent from many modern blues albums.
The duo format leaves plenty of room for Gwyn's muscular licks that induce the 'wow' factor time and time again. No-nonsense, brutal and invigorating. While 'Prohibition' was a gleeful return to the joys of the '70s power trio, this is a significantly different beast - and I use the word 'beast' advisedly.
Truth be told, I was feeling a little apprehensive after reading the sleeve notes, fearing a dumping of the Rory Gallagher cap-doffing in favour of a White Stripes soundalike with all the nakedly commercial crap that goes with it. How wrong can you be? Nine of the eleven tracks here are self-penned; the exceptions being incredible versions of Robert Johnson's 'Crossroad Blues' and Blind Willie Reynolds' 'Outside Woman Blues', both made famous by Cream, both blowing Cream's efforts clean out of the water.
A little light and shade is added The Wanton Song - Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti the subtle acoustic slide of 'Junior Got a Blade', but normal service is resumed with the mercurial 'Ain't Nobody's Fool' and the guitar crash and burn of 'One Way Ticket To The Blues'.
It is unlikely that Gwyn Ashton will get either the plaudits or the commercial rewards that this effort deserves, but it is one of those rare albums that make you punch the air and yell 'Yeeeeessssss!!!!!
