The Blacks lay down a sound that will spook the timid, intrigue the willing, and arouse the troubled.
The Blacks lay down a sound that will spook the timid, intrigue the willing, and arouse the troubled. Falling on the Times Square side of Nashville, and the Hollywood Blvd side of Texas, this is hardcore fucked-up cowboy jazz, with ample flourishes of cabaret, Doors-like rock 'n' roll, ragtime, and primordial country blues. It manages to simultaneously spiral back to the beginnings of American roots music as well as rocket to a grimy, lurid future.
Led by Danny and Gina Black (guitar/vocals and monstrous stand-up bass/vocals, respectively), The Blacks cajoled the services of Eric "Roscoe" Ambel as the producer for their debut (known for his work with Bottle Rockets, Blue Mountain, the Yayhoos and the Steve Earle).
In addition to honing their rock wallop, Dolly Horrorshow is soaked with The Blacks three part harmonies (courtesy of singer/rhythm guitarist Nora O'Connor, additional instrumentation (violin, piano, trumpet), and the crazy, sexy gestalt that has whipped crowds into frenzies.
In a better time, on a different planet, this album would held as a treasure. It's truly an unheralded classic.
