Immortal Lee County killers - These Bones Will Rise to Love
You Again (Tee
by G.P Throat, Jan 2006
call this a blues album is possibly using more poetic license than
is strictly legal. It would be a lot fairer to describe it as a
Blues “Influenced” record. With seven of the eleven
tracks coming in at under 3 minutes, it doesn't’t take a genius
to hazard a guess that the County Killers have a lot of punkish
type anger to vent, and this they do as well as most.
There is a fresh originality to their approach too, despite obvious
nods towards The Stooges and MC5
(notably on the track Boom Boom). They attack songs with their own
unique anger, and I get the feeling this is not an intentional approach,
just the only way they know how to do things.
For me the high point of the Album is the acoustic blues ramblings
of 'Stitched in Sin'. With it's wayward vocals and some thoughtful
lyrics, it's more a homage to the Stones (Sweet
Virginia) than Robert Johnson, but definitely showing
that these lads have got the blues in them somewhere, it would just
be nice to hear it a bit more often.
If you like your Blues unhinged and intense then you might find
it somewhere on this record, not for diehard enthusiasts but an
important foot note none the less!
