KINGS OF NUTHIN’, THE: Old Habits Die Hard: CD

Nov 16, 2010

Many moons ago, I reviewed (to much great acclaim) the Kings Of Nuthin’s Fight Songs album. Nearly a decade separated that record from this one and I failed to follow the Kings Of Nuthin’ between that time, so I was a bit apprehensive about the new record, whether their nostalgia and saxophone-driven rock and roll held up over time. Well, it certainly has. This picks up right where (for me) Fight Songs left off: perfectly executed, swinging, Bill Haley and the Comets-inspired bar room rock and roll full of lively sax and piano, with plenty of heart to spare. There is plenty of fun to be found in this record. Check it out.
