KIM AND LEANNE: True West: LP

Kim Salmon and Leanne Cowie kick up a racket across eleven tunes. As can be expected, echoes of his best-known band Scientists are in evidence, along with heaping doses of bluesy, raunchy-sounding swamp punk. Aside from a fairly unnecessary cover of the Stones’ “Dead Flowers,” and maybe a bit more intensity in vocal delivery in some places, the tunes are spot-on in the way that makes you just know they smoke live.
