A-Side is a thundering bluegrass stampede (it's also an XTC cover), and the B-Side is a smooth blending of all things good and pure in music set against an off-kilter lyrical sensibility.
Biram's blend of punk, delta blues, and hillbilly throws down the boogie gauntlet and sends a feral bolt of brimstone south of your studded leather belt.
This is gospel for the 13th circle, and he's singing it like his feet are already halfway in the fires.
For years around Chicago, Nora has been an in-demand hired assassin of singing to the hit-making hoi polloi, but here she scootches over just a little bit to center stage where she belongs.
A beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, ambitious, hypnotic, lovesick and lovelorn lyrical knockout of a record.
From dynamic atmospherics and psychedelic melancholy to pulsing T. Rex glam boogie and down and dirty southern ROCK, BBJ and host of guests deliver.
Full of effortless pop smarts and early rock n roll style, casting his creative powers in a whole new light and elevating his craft. Think Buddy Holly in Nashville duds.
An exuberant, noisy, custom job of mutant string-band sensibilities tricked out with crafty original songwriting and delivered with a confident, sly, sexy grin.
All motorcycle boots and sneers, they rode a squall of throat-grabbing feedback and Stonesy musical middle fingers. They were as much Thunders and Reed as anything country.
Live style urban hillbilly rave-ups, replete with soaring vocals, rollicking guitars, and a joyously grim sense of humor.
Intimate and personal, a perfect blend of orchestral sweep and glam rock swagger. A true masterpiece.
DEBUT CD. Some writer sent us this CD from Canada and said "You should put this out!" After listening to it about 8400 times in office (over a two day period), we agreed.
Debut CD whips up a witches brew of hillbilly hellfire and blues brimstone full of the locomotive rhythms of traditional bluegrass, the intensity of Mississippi roadhouse blues, and the full-on sonic assault of Slayer.
Using the songs of the late Doug Sahm—the Cosmic Cowboy--the Rockets raise their own bad-ass freak flag and kick out the grooves
Bravely forges a blend of hopped-up bluegrass, jangly Camper Van Beethoven-ish grooves, Jeannie C. Riley style singing, and a barely contained enthusiasm for AM rock and new wave.
