With a global fusion of blues, rock, folk and soul (much like Van Morrison they covered in the documentary The last Waltz), they were their own force of nature – rocking the house from start to finish. Sweet horn tones of songs like You worry me and Face hidden in the moment… to build to hoarse and shattering pieces like SOB.Night sweats covered everything.
