andrewoneill86Day 6(66) of Uber Rock's 13 Days of Halloween and it's time for the incredible melting Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing.

sorrythumbnewapproved_small_2012You know the routine by now: Monday morning on Uber Rock is always adorned with a big, or special, release. None, in the eyes of the glunk 'n' roll elders at URHQ, come bigger or more special than the long-lost five track EP from Sorry and the Sinatras! We thought we would never get to hear this rumour of shelved awesomeness, let alone be able to review it a couple of weeks before it finally gets a release - but hear it and review it we have and, guess what, it's exactly how we knew it would be. Uber Rock's Dom Daley welcomes back a lost friend...and begs him to stay.....
