Album Review: Papa Pilko & The Binrats - Till The End Of The Road

15 September 2015 | 3:33 pm | Chris Familton

"Tried and true influences"

They come charging out of the gate with On Your Own and lay down a rip-roaring swampy blues-funk testimonial that sets the scene for the rest of their debut album.

Tried and true influences are at play but the way the band combines them is a winning formula. John Lee Hooker, Tom Waits, CW Stoneking, New Orleans soul, voodoo funk and gothic country course through the ten songs while singer Cyrus Pilko channels fire and brimstone, culminating in a glorious scream on All I See that sends the needle into the red and highlights the importance of raw passion on this exceptional debut.
