JOHN WILKES BOOZE: self-titled: 7”

This outfit rocks and rolls southern style while wielding a white-hot poker, swinging at your head punker style with the rasping and ripping “Whiskey and Pills” and cooling out on the flip with a tune called “Marc Bolan Makes Me Want to Fuck,” complete with slide guitar. I can totally see these guys raging onstage with Throw Rag or even Tom Waits. Like to see a full length from JWB, hell yeah! Even the name of the band kicks ass!
