RICHARD JAMES AND THE SPECIAL RIDERS: Music for People Who Have Been Wrong(ed): CD

Sep 25, 2007

Sounds like old Delta blues with the distortion cranked up. This reminds me of the Soledad Brothers or Jack ‘o’ Fire. The vocals go between fuzzed-out, whiskey-beaten drawl to a high hiccupping sound. If you’re looking for something progressive rather than regressive you probably won’t like this; it’s lo-fi raunchy blues rock incorporating slide guitar and harmonica that pretty much follows the standard 12 bar pattern. I love this kind of stuff and this disc is going to go into regular rotation.
