Pissed Off, Bitter And Willing To Share - the first album from Glasgow-based alt.blues/roots musician and songwriter Craig Hughes - is out now on Channel Nowhere.

Following on from the EP Broke, Lonely And Guilty, the album is a more aggressive and perversely upbeat affair, featuring twelve new tracks exploring the darker side of life (leavened with a little caustic humour) - titles include Dancing On Your Grave and On A Rooftop With A Rifle And A Scope, with even the album's sole instrumental Cuban Necktie being named after a notorious method of gangland execution.

Hughes has been developing a strong reputation as a solo live performer and guitarist, and unsurprisingly his acoustic slide guitar playing features prominently here but there's room too for a few full electric arrangements, featuring album co-producer Tommy Duffin (Atomgevitter, The Plimptons) on drums. Stylistic diversions include Sighed Smoke Halo, an off-kilter mood piece setting its stall out somewhere between Richard Thompson and The Velvet Underground, and the aforementioned Cuban Necktie, a nod to 1970's electric Texas blues.

As tough as Tarantino and as warped as David Lynch, his stomping fuzzed-up alt.blues is uncompromising stuff that packs one hell of a punch.
- Classic Rock Presents: The Blues Magazine, 2013

A bear of a man he can be ferocious on the guitar but his bottleneck style and use of sustain reminded one of Zoot Horn Rollo’s instructions from the good Captain.
