TROUBLEMAN: The Last Show: CD

Oct 16, 2008

In addition to the music, all good rock‘n’roll records include the following topics: drinking, fighting, cheap floozies, and rock‘n’roll. Thus The Last Show may officially be dubbed a good rock‘n’roll record. These eleven tracks re-induce my juvenile rock fantasies (drinking, fighting, and chasing cheap floozies in a fog of Blatz and Jim Beam), and make me think of the Black Crowes meet the Joneses: knife-edge tunes with a twangy, Southern mentality lurking in the background, and just the right amount of sloppy drunkenness to provide an air of authenticity and credibility to go with the all-around fun and mayhem. Good stuff.
