HIPBONE SLIM AND THE KNEE TREMBLERS: The Kneeanderthal Sounds of: CD

Leave it to a buncha limeys to grace us with a pitch-perfect blend of the finest in American roots music. Embedded into the, uh, sequences of ones and zeros here are the ghosts of Buddy Holly, Bo Diddley, early Johnny Cash, Link Wray, Carly Perkins, the Ventures, and even a little of what made early Stax Records so swell. Sounds stale, don’t it? Well, these guys are so goddamned good at what they do that they sound as fresh, vital, and timeless as their heroes. Yup, they’ve walloped us with another stunner.
