Twenty years later and The Beatpack are back, packing three original members and this 7” single on State. For a re-animated band they sure pack a kick. Tremelo guitar and blues harp announce “I’m Walkin’” which starts sedately enough before exploding into fits of rage. Bassist William Burton Esq. holds the whole thing together and I like it a lot. The band even name-drops The Masters Apprentices in their bio. You can’t argue with that.

The B side sounds like “Farmer John” with lots of innuendo and a haircut. Simon Harvey’s unhinged solo gets this over the line. It presumably goes down a treat with the laydeez in Spain.
