Sure, sure, they aren’t exactly breaking any molds with their respectfully-retro brand of heavy rock, but they most definitely do it was a damn sight more panache than 99% of the naff revivalist bands we’ve sat through over the last seven years. They’re currently out on the road to tour their latest album, Raise A Little Hell, and they’ve brought The Picturebooks and Bad Touch along with them.

It’s easy to spit vitriol at bands like The Answer. These highly polished tribute bands that cash in on the aped sounds of classic artists from a long gone era are a scourge on the musical landscape.
