Dr X

"The brainchild of Markus Reeves, Dr X play a hand-built breed of Nu Blues and Country Punk, welding together riffs and rhythms so rooted you can taste the dirt. Playing a motley collection of homemade instruments, with a fire so driven you can smell the sweat on the frets. Add a bucketful of social comment and Dr X is cooking up a heady platter on full gas" - Dave Collins, music journalist.
