Many thanks to Colm Croughan for very kindly gifting me a copy of The Urges new 7” single release for Record Store Day this year.
This release contains two fantastic pieces of mid/late sixties influenced work, both James Walters originals, and both very, very good.
‘Passing Us By’ has a very Doors feel which is very welcome to these ears and builds and builds to a tremendous climax – a worthy A-side.
‘Corners Of Her Mind’ is a great pacey stomper – driving beat and great guitar work. There’s real passion in the delivery – almost like their lives depended upon it. Although labelled as the B-side, to my mind this is very much a double A-side.
What we need now lads is for you to follow this up with a full length album.
