The music on this, one of two EPs released by the South African hard rockers, certainly invokes the spirit of '76 with the same shouty vocals and powerful guitars. The songs here are all under two minutes long, the bass guitar is a bit more to the fore than on 'Turn It Up!' and the lyrics more overt, which really suits the genre - "I do not want a crown/I just want to be with Jesus" for example. If you're only going to buy one of the Old-Timers' EPs, I'd go for this one. Two specific points: I loved the false ending on "Televangelist" and the riffing on "Homeless Friends".
