It says on the accompanying blurb that Iain is an international artist and has toured with major theatre shows across Europe and Canada. More than that I don’t know, so this somewhat hippy-ish looking guy from Middlesex remains a bit of a mystery. One thing is certain though, he likes to rock! Things get off to a decidedly crunching start with “The Easter Song” - something of a guitar fest, and when not riffing for England, things sometimes stray worryingly close to Travelling Wilberry territory. I have to say that here and there, Iain’s vocal tuning is a little suspect. Still, the CD's earthy gutsiness carried it through.
