Hailing from Croydon, CoffeePot Drive are made up of a collection of musicians who have extensive experience, with individuals among their ranks having toured with names like REO Speedwagon, Status Quo and Uriah Heep. 'Edge Of Town', their debut album, was recorded at Francis Rossi's ARSIS studio and is described by the group as a record full of "jangly, Blues-fuelled Rock".

Fronted by vocalist Lady Oracle, a young lady with a big, mature sounding voice, the band deliver a Retro Rock sound, with a large helping of Delta Blues and a dash of Soul thrown in. 'Fallback' has all of these elements along with a big, catchy chorus, while 'Deep Freeze' is rooted in the Deep South, with its harmonica stabs and acoustic guitars luring you into a moody Rock cut. The eerie 'Bayou' precedes the single 'Hey Suzy!', a swinging and energetic romp which has already made an impression on the iTunes Blues chart.

'Change' ploughs a Reggae-influenced furrow and 'Glass In My Mellow' has a bouncy vibe that draws you in. 'Don't Know Love' is an excellent Blues Rocker which is probably my favourite on the album, which draws to a close with the haunting, piano-led 'Killer'.

It's by no means an "out and out" Rock album, the band themselves prefer to use the term "Dirty Soul", but what is abundantly clear is they are strikingly original. Usually I try and offer some sort of comparison in my reviews to give you an idea of what you are going to get, but the truth is I can't think of any band who sound like CPD.

If you like Blues or Soul with some Rock mixed in, check them out; CoffeePot Drive might be just what you're looking for.
