Once described by Rolling Stone magazine as "The Clash crossed with Creedence", That Petrol Emotion's star shone all too briefly in the late 80's when their second album Babble broke into the Top 40 and they almost had a chart hit on their hands with the track that most people know them for, Big Decision. As with the previous band of the O'Neill brothers they became an instant fave of John Peel. During the recording of the third album main songwriter John O'Neill left the band which by now were still making groundbreaking music but due to a lack of sales they split in 1994. The band reformed in 2008 to play some festival dates. Critically acclaimed, hugely influential....maybe, just maybe it's not too late to achieve the kind of success they deserved.
