Like with any movie from the actor that gave the band their name, leave your brain at the door and simply enjoy.

The Bluegrass/Redneck/Hillbilly take on Hard Rock classics isn't to everybody's tastes and should be taken with a pinch of salt, but you can't deny that these guys can play.

As Finland's answer to Hayseed Dixie, Steve 'N' Seagulls return with their second release 'Brothers In Farms' (great title!) and take on some, oft unexpected, Classic Rock songs with the use of acoustic guitar, banjo and fiddles in their own inventive style.

So what you get for your money are Hillbilly versions of the likes of Iron Maiden's 'Aces High', Metallica's 'Sad But True', Nightwish's 'Wishmaster', AC/DC's 'It's A Long Way To The Top (If You Want To Rock 'N' Roll)', 'Guns N' Roses' 'November Rain', Megadeth's 'Symphony Of Destruction', Steppenwolf's 'Born To Be Wild', Gary Moore/Phil Lynott's 'Out In The Fields' and a cracking take on Deep Purple's 'Burn'.

They also go more modern on us with Foo Fighter's 'The Pretender' and The Offspring's 'Self Esteem', while also successfully managing to polish a turd with a rendition of Nirvana's 'In Bloom' that is infinitely more enjoyable than the hideous original.

Barmy? Yes. Essential? No. But like with any movie from the actor that gave the band their name, leave your brain at the door and simply enjoy.
