Churchwood

(Saustex)

There's little traditional about Churchwood's irreverent blues, thank heaven. It's rude, literate, bilingual, unpredictable, and addictive. LeRoi Brothers' Joe Doerr throws his Wolf growl into the gutbucket mix ("Pity the Noose"), matching Bill Anderson and Billy Steve Korpi's mean guitars without compromise ("Supermonisticgnostiphistic," "Vendidi Fumar," "Car Crash"). Nothing safe here, just music for driving the highways after midnight on a moonless night.
