KINGS OF NUTHIN’: Shit Out of Luck: 7”

Oct 16, 2008

With a horn that sounds like it was plucked out of an early John Waters soundtrack, a barrelhouse piano and a vocalist who sounds like he chainsmokes filterless Camels, the Kings of Nuthin’ have a lot of style. Whether or not all that flash and gruff humor translates into something you want to hear over and over again is probably something else entirely. This might be best described as skinibilly… lots o’ tattoos, snappy black suits and tie ensembles and a macho frontguy singing about being down in the dumps.
