  Great St Louis - Forever Now
By RIOT 77 issue 11 (Cian Hynes) submitted

The latest venture from the stable of Andy Higgins and JSNTGM and he´s over the moon about it !! The Great St Louis appear the greatest thing to happen in a lot of punkers´s lives in recent times. So let´s see what the song and dance is all about then. It has been said that this band is the missing link between Social Distortion and Leatherface and that´s as good a starting point as you´re likely to get. If your thinking that amounts to another Hot Water Music or Dillinger Four, well you wouldn´t be far off that either, only this packs a firm and solid punch, avoiding all the emo pitfalls that Hot Water Music sometimes slipped into. The band are from Bolton in England of all places, if you can believe it and I´m not sure what influence if any, their hometown has had on their music, but its certainly not apparent listening to this. Perhaps living in Bolton was enough on its own to make them want to form a band and get the fuck out - who knows ? They definitely sound like people who have music as their salvation. Ten songs in under half an hour sounds just about right for a debut album and it left me yearning for more which inevitably leads to repeated plays. It´s all here kids, the guitar chops, rasping vocals and an attitude that´s clearly on the right side of the fence aesthetically. Fans of the harder edged stuff Newest Industry have put out are likely to go for this.
