Dick's Recommendations

The Prohibitionists - S/T EP

This superb self-titled EP from Cincinnati rock 'n' roll 4-piece The Prohibitionists starts with the catchy little garage pop number 'Lily', trailed by the brilliant, 60s-inspired 'Buttercup'. Next is the infectious 'Got Something' which has a downright dirty riff whilst the wistful 'Memories' is almost a bubblegum pop song.

'All My Tomorrows' slows the pace somewhat before a rousing climax whilst 'Crash and Burn' & 'I Would I' are a couple of garage rock stompers

The fine fretwork on final track, the terrific 'Everybody's Got One', makes sure this impressive EP comes to a fitting conclusion.
