Siren: Strange Locomotion [Dandelion/Elektra, 1971]
Like Fleetwood Mac, this is British blues that neither chokes on false roots nor enmires itself in boogie reductionism. Kevin Coyne's humorously belligerent drawl embodies the band's wit and its punk chauvinism. Mistake: "Fetch Me My Woman," which (second mistake) goes on for 7:40.
