Imagine, if you will, that music is like soup. Then imagine you take some roughly chopped roots of Blues and Rock'n'Roll, add a thick stock of seventies heaviness and psychedelia and bring to the boil. As the concoction simmers way too hot spice it up with a dash of Funk, a sprinkling of Punk, a hint of Reggae and more than a little Prog. Turn the heat up as high as it will go and for as long as possible, this should be at least until your smoke alarm goes off and/or noise control arrive. The dish can then be garnished with a little light humour but must be served LOUD.
If you are still with me in this analogy you are beginning to understand what Dr Thompson is. Four old school musicians from four completely different styles of music, on a genre warping musical journey in a V12 with a broken stereo and no muffler. It's been said before but Dr Thompson truly are The Best Band You've Never heard Of.
