Three years have passed since the Revellions released their last single and it's been five years since their eponymous debut album on Dirty Water Records. This will be the one album this year for which anticipation is high. This is the one the fans have been waiting for. Their BBC sessions recorded on Mark Lamarr's God's Jukebox show only whetted our appetite. Compilation albums featured the odd new track...but for a whole variety of reasons the new album was delayed and delayed again. Give it time, the boys said, give it time. Band members came and went...still with us, and appearing live at the Dirty Water Club's main base of operations these days, the Shacklewell Arms in Dalston, in, ahem, fashionable East London very soon!! are James Lister on guitar and vocals, Thomas D'Arcy on keyboard and vocals, Michael Smith on drums and Brian Salter on bass. The album contains contributions from members old and new and spans a riotous five years, much of which was spent touring around Europe, from Spain to Scandinavia, with recording sessions in Dublin fitted in when they were able to drag themselves out of the pub and away from the Guinness. Despite the time lapse and line up changes, this is no difficult second album. It's a coherent collection of tracks that truly represents the band at this time. This is a band that has been playing gigs, bashing heads, and coming together, tighter than ever, and with new songs to not just rival but surpass those on the debut.
