Review by Jazzer
4 stars out of 4

The Figgs Mike Gent hooked up with Gravel Pit members Lucky Jackson (Guitar), Bassist Ed Valauskas, and Drummer Pete Caldes for fun in April 99 and played a handful of shows as a side project. When they realized that this was a little better than a "fun" side project, they went in the studio and came out with "Ladies and Gentleman... The Gentlemen".

With low expectations, the band has come up with a very strong offering powered by Gent's vocals and a lot of guitar. The opening track, "Sour Mash" comes right at you with the vigor of The Rolling Stones "Honky Tonk Women" and never stops hitting you for twelve solid tracks. It is very rare in this day and age of hit singles and one hit wonders that a record knocks you out like this one does.

There are several impressive moments here but the signature tunes are the angry "You and Your Boyfriend" and the potential radio classic "Top Heavy". A little Faces, a little Ian Hunter, a lot of Stones, and some good ole Boston rock all wrapped together and The Gentlemen deliver the goods.
