The Mustangs
Styles: Blues, Rock
Catalogue Number: BMRCD20064
“Lovers of Brit blues-rock are sure to get a kick out of this new release by The Mustangs. Adam Norsworthy is front man on guitar and vocals, backup is supplied by Derek Kingaby on harp, Ben McKeown on bass and drummer Jon Bartley. On an all-original twelve song set The Mustangs run the gamut of head down, thrash it out blues-rock, and material which falls more into the straight ahead singer/songwriter rock arena. If this kinda thing shakes your particular plum tree then you'll definitely need to check it out. Nicely arranged and recorded.” Blues & Rhythm “In an overcrowded market you’ve got to have something special to stand out. Four piece outfit The Mustangs operate in the blues/rock field and by all accounts are a particularly fierce live act… not difficult to imagine when you give their latest album a spin. Split Decision clocks in at just over 32 minutes but it’s 12 tracks offer up plenty of evidence as to why they are so highly touted by those in the know. In Adam Norsworthy they have a singer and guitarist capable of belting out a driving rock number like ‘Wired’ but who can also turn on the sensitivity when the song calls for it. He’s ably backed by Derek Kingsby on harp and a red-hot rhythm section in bassist Ben Mckeown and drummer Jon Bartley. The Mustangs aren’t a blues band, more a rock band with a bluesy approach who wear their influences proudly on their sleeves. The rock crunch of Free can be heard in opener ‘Can’t Find A Lover’, The Kinks and The Beatles surface on the lovely ballad ‘Over Too Soon’ and there’s more than a passing nod to The Who on live favourite ‘Put The Lights On’. All the material is original, well crafted and sung and no doubt an absolute riot in a live setting. Shouldn’t be long before the bigger venues come calling.” Blues Matters
