Barely six months since the release of his debut EP, Every Angry Inch, Crooked Saint is heading straight into summer with the release of his second record, the Sweating Bullets EP. Though originally the brainchild of Tim Wheatley as an outlet for his solo work, the Sweating Bullets EP sees Wheatley cementing a full band line up based around long term collaborator and ex Sparrows band-mate Michael Badger (The Demon Parade), drummer Troy Ramaekers and guitarist Johnny Grant. Like Every Angry Inch, Sweating Bullets was co-produced and recorded by Badger in his Jaya Jaya studio’s.
Due in no small part to the natural flow that comes from 4 likeminded people playing together over a period of time, where Every Angry Inch rollicked, Sweating Bullets rolls, the band slotting in seamlessly around Wheatley’s song craft and laconic, candid delivery. From the 12 bar intro’ed west coast guitar inspired storm of opener ‘Lazy Bones’ through the acoustic elegy of ‘Cast of Yesterday’, the bombastic oomph of the title track to the of alt-country tinged twang of five minute closer Man In Waiting, as a cohesive body of work, Sweating Bullets picks up perfectly where Every Angry Inch left off.
