TYLA GANG ‘Yachtless’ (Mystic Records MYSCD162) (2003)
Re-issue of the 1977 album that featured singer/guitarist Sean Tyla, from
pub rockers Ducks Deluxe. It’s an album of straight ahead, driving blues
rock - not unlike classic Quo circa ‘Piledriver’. ‘Hurricane’ sets the scene
nicely complete with slide guitar and ‘Lost Angels’ will get your foot
tapping! There is even a touch of country rock on the mellow ‘New York Sun’.
This release also adds no less than six bonus tracks, including the smokin’
‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre Boogie’. Some great guitar playing on here from
Tyla and fellow guitarist Bruce Irvine.
A worthy re-release and if your bag is the blues rock of George
Thorogood, get hold of a copy of this CD.
