WAGON BLASTERS: Trail Songs of Love, Loss & Regret: 7”

Nov 18, 2011

This tractor punk outfit from Nebraska harvests the best qualities from country and punk and makes it their own. With crackling drums, strong guitar, buzzing harmonica, and electric bass fiddle, Blasters have created three tracks that can stand alone with quality production and sound throughout. On ruby red vinyl, this is solid punk’n’roll done right by some good ol’ boys. Davis, the vocalist and founder of this local record label, reminds me of Jeff Pezzati, with brawny, blow your house down kind of vocals. “Golden Lariat” and “Fortified” are my faves for their sheer boot stompin’ energy. Pass the whiskey! Recommended.
