COMPULSIONS: Laughter from Below: CD

Jul 17, 2006

Unsigned, the Compulsions put out like Mick Jagger on this sincere Stones-inspired six-song EP of roadhouse style rock. A rotating line up of musicians from the Patti Smith Group, Howlin’ Wolf Band, the Pissers, and more, belt out honest rock’n’roots, southern rock and down-home blues on both the up tempo and the melancholy tunes. Toss in a little New York Dolls, Joan Jett, and even some ‘70s-style reggae for good measure. The dearth of available information leads me to believe that I may eat my words later, but for now, this is very comfortable and homey.
