Just Like Home
The spirit of X and Dock Boggs inspire thirteen originals, that'll charm all the snakes on the premises.
The Blacks', our resident carnival punks, second CD. The spirit of X and Dock Boggs inspire eleven originals, from banjo-laden laments to jangly burlesque songscapes.
Step right up, move away from the Midway, join the Blacks' sideshow, where they bluntly display their forward-looking and exciting fusion of goth and country and cabaret.
Danny Black's voice, rock and roll at the top, and raspy, suggestive, lazily sexy down below, guides us through the freak show of relationships and Gina blasts through a sultry cover of a Tom Waits tune ("Goin' Out West"). The songs are full of paranoia, betrayal and jealousy--you know, the good stuff. As much Django Reinhardt as Louie Armstrong as X.
At times tawdry, quesy, psychedelic and full of a snake-handler's charm, Just Like Home lends a whole new perspective on "domesticity."
Features a guest appearance on violin by Andrew Bird on "How He Cried"
