COOKIE: Sweat-Soaked and Satisfied: CD

This was a surprise ’cause I half-expected it to suck. Some dang tasty, occasionally country twinged, rock/punk, very heavy on the rock, that falls somewhere between Texas Terri and Deep Purple, which explains the cover of “Highway Star.” Though this band is dancing on a very thin wire where any misstep could send them tumbling into an abyss rapidly filling with some mighty shitty bands, they manage to pull it all off and come up with one mighty nice piece of work. Recommended if this type of stuff is your bag.
