Livin' it, Lovin' it! CD Cover Southampton Beer Festival 2010

'... superbly realised originals, (including) the positively raunchy and extremely catchy "One More Shot (of you boy)" and closer the inventive, grandiose pop-rock and fiddle fired vision of "Red Waters".

'Charlie Rose, has a lilt to her voice that carries with it the salt scent of the sea. Their current release, ĎLiviní It, Loviní It!í says it all. This band plays with a pleasure that is physical. They love what they do and it comes through loud and clear. State of Undress donít merely play their music, they prod and push it along with gale force and the consistency of the tide.'    The Alternate Root

Liviní it, Loviní it! CD


The title ĎLiviní it, Loviní it!í is taken from the song Mudeford Mood about the beautiful Dorset fishing village near our home which is the source of much creative inspiration. More than that, ĎLiviní it, Loviní it!í pretty much sums up how we, as a band, feel about writing and playing our music. We love all the songs on this CD and hope they reflect the very different sides of the band - from mellow and thoughtful to unadulterated, shameless exuberance and even downright eccentricity! We hope you enjoy listening to them as much as we enjoy performing them.

   'Well it makes me scream, yeah it makes me wanna shout'
             'We set our nets deep, then row on some more'
