JOHN WESLEY COLEMAN: The Last Donkey Show: LP

JWC is becoming one of my favorite modern slop rockers. I haven’t seen him live yet, but I’m picturing an out-of-control basement party with beer flying and, probably, some dude taking his shirt off. It’s earnest, heartfelt, and not just a touch campy. Similar to the fantastic shit-faced stomp fest Bad Lady Goes to Jail album, but these new songs are more solid, with a less blown-out production. With that said, it still sounds like a Goner album and you should still buy it.
