Album: Hidden Charms
Artist: Rick Shaffer
Label: Tarock Music
Added to Playlist: May 2011
Channeling Elvis, Link Wray, Flat Duo Jets. One man studio band with a little help, “old school” proving that the recipe still can work. Big guitar and vocals, sounds like its gonna be tradi-rock but then psyche and garbage can weirdness appears. Great stuff. Play with new Crystal Stilts, Doo Rag, all things John Spencer (e.g. Boss Hog, etc), Tav Falco and the Panther Burns, Detroit Cobras, White Stripes.
1) NO BIG THING - swampy, bouncy hip shaking (BEST TRACK?).
