Press about last record "The Spirit"
Q, London:'A darkly singular experience then, and one of the best records he's ever made...'Vive Le Rock, UK: 'Deep bass grooves, pivotal New Orleans-style drumming, hot post-punk soul, a hoodoo voodoo gumbo like prime Dr John...' - 8/10
Louder Than War, UK:'Race has a captivating low growl of a voice, instantly bringing to mind Leonard Cohen, but 'The Spirit' also glows with the noir atmospherics of Rowland S Howard and the coiled funk of Issac Hayes. The seductive mood suffuses the entire, thoroughly enjoyable album.'
