Artist - 4ft Pimp
Album: Freudian Slip
I really looked forward to listening to this CD and I was not disappointed. I have heard tracks from this band before which I have enjoyed such as the brilliant “Cabin Fever,”
The album starts high tempo and carries on through the CD in the same vein until the last track which is markedly slower, with my fave tracks being “Worst crime known,” “Shotgun paradise” and the slower “Fear of the unknown.” To be truthful I like all of it though and will definitely be making the effort to see this band live.
As far as I know none of the stuff I have heard from them are covers so we should support this band as they are musically very tight and original. Therefore if you like rock music played well I can’t recommend this group highly enough.

Title: Simple Pleasures Drastic Measures
Artist: 4ft Pimp
A new eagerly awaited EP from 4ft Pimp. The more I hear their music, the more I like them. Out of all the bands that we have sent to us, to review and play on the radio station, this is one of the only groups that I keep on my IPOD. They play very powerful hard rock which seems to have its own unique sound. This is demonstrated on the first track "Great Aunt Anaconda". A grand track which has great guitar riffs and what I think every good rock band should have keyboards. The second track "No Ball Games" just as good as the first and reminds me in the latter stages a bit of Deep Purple with the guitar and organ battling together.
The final track is one I have heard before "Shotgun Paradise". This is a speeded up version and is guaranteed to have you shaking your hair (if I had any left). The only problem if this describes sunny Southend, it’s changed a lot since those halcyon days at Zero 6 on a Saturday night in my youth.
All in all another great slice of Seaside Rock played well with conviction and humour, very highly recommended BUY IT.
