A thunderous opening drum 'n' feedback assault and a catchy chorus make "Take Your Hands From Me" a brutal Big Brother to the Little Sister of Charly Six's last single. It's similar post punk territory, done for fun and raw sensation. And it's done with swaggering style and a loud rich mix. It's good. Daytime radio should have no trouble at all.
Joint A side "8th Floor 6am" is a more tuneful poprock leer with Danny Carr's trademark vowel distortions and husky soulboy delivery. It's a complete and well made song. The band seem a bit less confident about what to do with the slower tempo, so they stay professionally out of the way with regulation chunks of quality rhythm and scratchy guitar strumming: but there is a nice hard sounding lead guitar figure that comes round a couple of times. It more than does the business in terms of showing the range and quality of Charly Six repertoire and fully justifies the claim of 'double A side'.
