GOON MAT AND LORD BENARDO: “What It’s All About” b/w “Stay on Me”: 7”

This is messed-up, dirty traditional blues from a French duo with one member on vocals, playing guitar sitting down and pounding out a minimal drumbeat on a bass drum and high-hat combo with his feet, and the other playing the heart and soul out of his harmonica. The easy reference point here is King Khan And BBQ Show, but this is way more traditional sounding than that. Fans of stuff on the Fat Possum label would eat this up.
