I have been caught speeding on three occasions. All of these offences were committed whilst driving to college in 2007.
On each occasion, I wrote to Stratchclyde Police pleading mitigating circumstances; namely that I was unable to effectively manage my speed due mainly to ‘Secrets & Lies’, sophomore release by Welsh mentalists Taint. The driving grooves, Jimbob’s snarled vocals and epic riffs meant that I was powerless to do anything but shout along to ‘Hex Breaker’ and attempt to push my accelerator pedal through the floor.
Luckily for my license, Taint split a few years later and I looked forward to some incident free cruising. Well, that hard-rocking bastard Jimbob has scuppered my plans to drive Miss Daisy by releasing the sexually and digitally available ‘Mythopoeia’ with his new band of riff-grinders, Hark. This is probably everything you’ve ever wanted from every heavy band ever. Ever.
