'Throughout, Jenkins' angry guitar playing is powerfully effective and the contributions from Dylan Bates (violin), Richard Bolton (guitar), Thaddeus Kelly (bass) and Mike Pickering (drums) - all outstanding musicians - are masterful. Trevor Hodgett/Blues In Britain Billy Jenkins sings, plays guitar & puffs some harmonica with Dylan Bates (violin) Richard Bolton (guitar) Thaddeus Kelly (bass) Mike Pickering (drumkit)

 

Reviews

 

01/01/2002 Martin Longley/Sheffield Telegraph

The new CD 'BLUES ZERO TWO' is hardcore Blues Collective. Trains, consumerism, food fads, work ethics and the socio-industrial infrastructure all come under the microscope - and this time we can guarantee there are no screaming kids, cruise ship organs, or 'kitchen sink' rattling. Produced by Jon Wilkinson at Steam Room Studios in London's East End - BJ, Dylan Bates, Richard Bolton, Thad Kelly & Mike Pickering have been captured in all their raw magnificence, as they serve up another wry aural cartoon collection of society's foibles. All pieces are BJ penned except Charles Brown's 'A Virus Called The Blues'. A 'Pick Of The Year' in Blues In Britain magazine 2002 'The fantastic Blues Collective drive him along to new heights. His lyrics, as ever, are full of wit, profundity and crap jokes.

This man should be knighted. Now.'

 

01/01/2002 John Fordham/The Guardian

'If you're a Jenkins fan, this update on his Blues Collective is right in the pocket. The guitar-playing is often manically breathtaking, and tracks such as I Wanna Stay Here touch the heart as well as the head and the funny bone.'

 

01/01/2002 Peter Quinn/Jazzwise

'The present Blues Collective line-up kicks ass with Thad Kelly's pulsating, mesmeric bass grooves and Mike Pickering's precision drumming providing the perfect backdrop for some vintage Jenkins guitar work (and not a pedal board in sight).
