Largely overlooked on these shores, The Amazing Snakeheads released the aptly-titled Amphetamine Ballads album earlier this year and went through a few lineup shifts that left frontman Dale Barclay as the last man standing. Now rebooted and ready for a UK tour, the Glaswegian group have unleashed a new 7” single fronted by the fierce A-side “Can’t Let You Go.” While the title suggests a weepy ballad, Barclay comes out swinging from the starting gate, and doesn’t let up until the very last poison-tipped guitar lick. Now if only they’d tour over here before the year’s over.
