Here's a band proud to be the soundtrack to your weed smokin', beer swiggin' escapes from 2016's dystopian shitstorm reality; one feverishly decorated with unrelenting commercialism, villainous politicians and godforsaken auto-tune. There may be thousands of musicians who can play their instruments better, write more intelligent and thought provoking music, but when you listen to rugged and guttural ‘tune in, drop out' vibes of Keep It Greasy, none of that seems to matter.

Their approach to sound and texture makes this record feel like an undiscovered gem from 1971, time worn, warts n' all. Its beauty is defined, rather than hindered by, its unkempt primalism. As a record too, it displays an improved sense of how to get your heart battering your rib cage – think rattling Geezer Butler bass, gravel-toned vocals and the freewheeling madness of Keith Moon. These new songs are using the tried and tested Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell formula to find new ways of getting under your skin.

From the jolting opening sex-pest boogie of "U Got Wot I Need" to the sandpaper smooth, Zeppelin stomp of "Tired N' Wired" – its lyrics straight from Lemmy's freight train of thought – they make the last three decades crumble away. Longer tracks like "Hairy Brain Part 2," "Paid In Full" and album closer "Wrong" are peppered with many of rock's cornerstones – twisting harmonies, driving shuffle rhythms and whirling feedback – but never sound impressionistic. They simply absorb you, swallow you whole.

But this is no mere pastiche that cashes in on society's occasional backwards-glancing, nostalgic tendencies. This is down-to-earth and real. Keep It Greasy documents the trials and tribulations these sleezeballs have been through while on the road and beyond.
