For a first album, Edinburgh’s Bwani Junction really turned something out when Fully Cocked was released in 2011. One of the best bands to come out of Scotland, we take a listen back to the album that set this Scottish quartet apart from the rest.
For an opening track, it certainly captures the essence of this band. Starting slow then being tantlised with lead vocalist Rory’s unique voice it’s what you want from an opening track.
She Ain’t Saying No
Everyone loves a singalong and this is the track for that. Simple rhythmic guitars send you in a trance and instantly you find yourself singing (or screeching) this aloud.
My Body, My Mind
This song has gone a few revamps since its first release, but like I say, nothing beats the orginal. Nothing complex lyrically, however the fusion of intense rhythms from the guitars and staggering drums is a winner for us.
Rarely played live, this track is an underdog. Slightly quieter and more poignant feeling, it reminds me of cosy winter nights. Soft harmonies and delicate beats, it’s definitely not a song to skip on this album.
Ah, the Bwani boys first single. And yet, will always be a crowd pleaser and send everyone in to a frenzy. Talking of tales with friends, every time I have seen this song live it just gets better. A song that will stand the test of time.
