Me as a sixteen year old, sweating away at PGL in Ross-on-Wye, having just spent a happy evening raving!!!
I had just received my GCSE results and they were rather good!
Review of Sweat Baby Sweat
by Hans Werksman of Here Comes The Flood music blog
"Guitarist Richard Thomas is in rock mode on Sweat Baby Sweat, the latest release of his one-man project Mint Biscuit. He pushed the sound of his Gretsch through a bunch of amp effects and distortion, going for a raw and punchy vibe that will strike a chord with fans of garage rock and grunge.
Whether he goes for aggressive simplicity in Electromatic Breakdown or delivers a power pop excursion with Froggyhopping, Thomas throws in a couple of notes that don't seem to fit, but in fact they actually spice things up. No Guitar Playing In The Library could be mistaken for a Mike Oldfield demo.
Taking into account it is once again recorded on a shoestring budget, this new collection of instrumentals sounds damn fine and confident. He has found a tone that he is comfortable with, but it also gives him plenty of room to experiment further with this new approach".
