Kings Thursday on the Friday Street

Kerrang!   [3/5]   [28th July 2001]

Promising mini-album from stoned Scotsmen.

Glasgow is not viewed as a hotbed of new stoner talent - a fact that makes this debut from bearded bravehearts Marshan all the more impressive. From the outset, Marshan impress with their mesmeric, swirling heaviness and the confident way in which their guitars lock together to make "Purple Demon Blues" and "Funky Fork Song" an absolute blast.

Clearly, production values are not a priority, and the band suffer when they slow things down, but for a first step, the Marshans have most definitely landed.
