ON THE STREET - RICHARD KINGSMILL - September 24, 1986
“Steve Tallis is a Perth singer / songwriter / guitarist who has been playing music since his R’n’B days in the 60s. This 12’ EP, although only possessing three songs, accurately documents his versatile talents and predominant influences. While “Desire” is sharp pop/rock, the title track demonstrates a keen sense of guitar funk in the traditional sense of the term. His 60s roots come clearly to the fore in “Three Times 100 Dozen Moons”. Commencing with the feel and flow of Hendrix during his Band of Gypsy days (complete with a Cox / Miles rhythm), it quickly progresses into a free-flowing jazz excursion, during which he displays his mercurial guitar style.
This record is worthwhile and refreshing listening.”
