    Nowhere Left to Turn (2006)

    Clocking in at 54 minutes and just 4 tracks, this is the best album we have ever made: it’s the most in yer face, guitar crunching, hammond rocking album yet! Track 1, In Passing (6.34) is a rollicking guitar fest with some ace riffs and pounding hammond. A great opening number that has a slinky…
