While no track on new album Can’t Find The Brakes is radically original, there’s still plenty to enjoy, not least opener Don’t Put Out The Fire, a slow-burner with shades of AC/DC. Won’t Take Me Alive is pure vintage Aerosmith (not as sharp lyrically, but nice and ratty nonetheless), while on Dirty Mind new drummer Jaydon Bean follows a Joey Kramer-style swing groove.
They’re not quite as effective when they drop down a gear to aim for a big ballad with Roam and closer You Make It All Right, but the acoustic Coming Home (Ballad Of The Shire) is pretty good.
Ultimately, though, Dirty Honey are best when putting boot to buttock. The title track is particularly fabulous and effortlessly funky, and the band can be proud of that.
