Of the six tracks on this EP, three are re-mixes or re-edits from the 'Boomerang' sessions; two are completely new songs, "Colour Wheel" and "Pocket Of Change", and the title track is a "re-written" version of an earlier song "Why". The EP was initially recorded for an Artist Against Racism tour in Germany but is now a useful shelf filler as we await the follow up to 'Boomerang'. Producer Andy Piercy again gets the best out of Adrian Thompson and cohorts, the songs have all the raw Celtic abandon of a rock act eminently confident of their power to grip and "Call Me White..." has a hook I challenge anyone to ignore. Thoroughly recommended.
