|The band came together at
the beginning of 1990 and started work on the album that would become 'Fresh
Evidence'. With Gerry McAvoy on bass and Brendan O'Neil on drums Rory
continued with the same winning line-up that had featured 'Jinx' and
However, as the title infers Rory was keen to record a diverse, fresh sounding
album that would encompass rock n' roll, blues, jazz and Cajun. To achieve
this he used a variety of guest musicians and Lou Martin, on piano, returned
to the band after an absence of more than 10 years. This gave him the additional
instrumentation and feel he wanted. "The King Of Zydeco" is a tribute to
Cajun musician Clifton Chenier. He pays tribute to Alexis Komer (the father
of British blues) in the song "Alexis". "Walkin' Wounded" has lyrics that
express the sorrow and sadness Rory sometimes felt.
