Two dudes from Ames, Iowa have a psychedelic-garage-punk-blues-rock band. Ho hum, right? Uh, NO—this is an awesome record, for what it is. Lots of Moby Grape + White Stripes jams here, also Jimi Hendrix (“Luckydutch”) and some faux-countryblues hippie stuff like the almost-six-minute “Deep Blue Sea” where they lose points for lyrics about how we can see dude’s little woman, but gain a lot more points for sexy slow strutting. Parker Griggs does all the singing and playing except bass, which is handled by Luke McDuff; Griggs’ best singing comes when the tempo is up, and his Steven Tyler fixation will have to find a more mature outlet sometime. But overall this is fun and slutty and cool, I’m in favor of it all the way.
