AllMusic Review by

Originally released in 2002 on the tiny Sweet Nothing label and unavailable for several years, FIRE MUSIC was reissued in 2008. Led by singer and organist James Johnston, also a key member of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Gallon Drunk feature a similarly dark and foreboding take on Doors-influenced indie rock, but in place of Cave's obsessions with religious imagery, Johnston is a more literal lyricist with an occasionally jaundiced eye towards romance. Highlights include "Things Will Change" and "In This Moment."
