"Book of Shame rock it up to eleven with this blistering second single Killing Pickle. A blinding powerhouse of spine jangling guitars and thumping bass that leaves you twitching like shot of electro convulsive therapy.
Producer Rico Conning has really pushed the power cables up the spine of this one. Traces of Wire, Beefheart, Ziggy, and T REX are woven like chainmail in this carefully crafted tune. Boyds edgy vocal style deliver lyrics that cut to the core."
