I was always going to like a band with a name like Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet and this session highlights their guitar instrumental chops quite nicely.
I was never sure whether the Shadowy bit was a reference to The Shadows, because they have that Hank Marvin twang which bears more than a passing resemblance at times.
The last track is a corker - essentially being a medley of brief riff-snippets (riffets?) from cliched encore songs. Can you spot them all?
