If anyone has not heard reef, they were an amazing guitar/riff heavy blues rock based band in the ninetees with an great vocalist. No videos around really. This one is poor but gives an impression of how raw and energy filled they were, especially at the end. Excuse the bass mix.

'Place your hands' is quite misleading as representing Reef, it got to number one, and is upbeat and poppy, it's the one people know them from. But their other work is more Rock N Roll with far more groove. Their first two albums are the best, their later work is pretty awful. So 'Replenish' or 'Glow' are those two albums.

This famous (ish) riff is off Replenish but his voice really developed in Glow, which has more melodies. I like the jaminess of Replenish, but both groove:
