GUNS OF NEVADA: Damned and Adored: CD

I’m sure this is lots of people’s jam—fast-paced, country-inspired rock’n’roll— cowboys who also probably like the Ramones. It seems they might describe themselves as “cowpunk grungebilly,” which is a description that I cannot improve on. It’s a little too straightforward for me to enjoy, but I’m sure this would be of interest to folks who like going to drink a bunch of beer at a bar with steeds on the wall and screaming along to arena rock-inspired lyrics with bluesy guitar solo subtext. That’s not me, but I’m not the only person in the Pacific Northwest, so they’ll be fine. –Theresa W. (PIG, pig-records.com)
