Album Notes
"Pissed Off, Bitter And Willing To Share" is the first album from Glasgow-based alt.blues/roots guitarist-singer/songwriter Craig Hughes. Following on from the successful EP release "Broke, Lonely And Guilty", the album is a more aggressive and perversely upbeat affair, featuring twelve new tracks exploring the darker side of life - titles include "Dancing On Your Grave" and "On A Rooftop With A Rifle And A Scope" (even the album's sole instrumental "Cuban Necktie" is named after a notorious form of gangland execution). The mood throughout is leavened with a streak of dark humour.

Unsurprisingly, Craig's acoustic guitar playing features prominently here, but there's room too for a few full electric arrangements, featuring album co-producer Tommy Duffin (Atomgevitter, The Plimptons) on drums. The occasional stylistic diversions include "Sighed Smoke Halo", an off-kilter mood piece setting its stall out somewhere between Richard Thompson and The Velvet Underground, and the aforementioned "Cuban Necktie", a nod to 1970's electric Texas blues.

The album was recorded at Audio Experiments in Glasgow, produced by Tommy Duffin and Craig Hughes.
