Any band who take the inspiration for their name from the Incredible Hulk (the Marvel comic, not the TV series or film) get an extra point before the CD even goes into the player. The fact that they play a high-class blend of classic Derringer, Grand Funk Railroad and Cactus licks amped up and slathered in heavy cheese for the 21st century is a major bonus. Kicking off with the love song to their transit, 'Champagne Minivan' - imagine Helmet, though niether arch nor arty, if they had been around in the 70s and written a 'Born to be Wild' stadium anthem - this is an album that poses the strait-faced question: do you believe in rock'n'roll? If not, sod off back to your bedroom and listen to some atonal Radiohead experiments or slide in a Thin Lizzy CD and reflect on how they have'nt made'em like that since 1975. Bollocks, daddio. this is classic rock'n'roll that's alive and well in the here and now and you really should get out more and find it.
