Huxton Creepers – 12 Days to Paris

Huxton Creepers – 12 Days to Paris

This quartet from Melbourne, Australia plays gritty Stonesish rock and harmony-laden Byrdsy folk-rock on their first American LP, which might easily be mistaken for the work of an American "heartland" band. The Huxton Creepers could use a more mellifluous singer than Rob Craw — gruffness when he strains is a problem — but his guitar interplay with Paul Thomas, supported by a fluid, strong rhythm section, makes 12 Days an unfailingly engaging record. Guest Hammond work (on one song — a second, indicated on the back cover, was somehow omitted from the US LP!) by ex-Procol Harum organist Chris Copping is more eyebrow-raising than ear-opening.
