Graveyard BBQ - The Raw The Rippin & The Righteous EP

The very name is enough to send tingles of sleazy excitement through 100% ROCK MAG – and it’s almost no surprise to find the music herein is Industrial slide sleaze-Zombie freakshow blues metal!

The Rustler is pure Kenny Rogers – if he was a long haired slide playing metalhead who numbers White Zombie amongst his favourites! It’s a raw and raucous throbber which sees country, metal, blues and industrial all collide in a dark alleyway and fuck their way outta trouble. Sometimes that’s the only way to survive the night.

The Clothes Makes The Man is billed as unplugged – a slinky, bluesy stomp that mainman Brownbag Johnson is obviously having a shitload of fun with. It’s more Skynyrd than Thorogood, but you can see the vague shadows of Elmore James and John Lee Hooker in there as well, way underneath the sneering Lemmy and Rob Zombie veneer.

It’s a hybrid that works for one reason only – Brownbag’s deft genre melting skills (he labels the music ‘DirtCore’) and songwriting, and it doesn’t hurt that a frenzied Judas Priest-meets-John Lee Hooker take on the Bo Diddley classic Who Do You Love closes this little EP out.

Just say HELL YEAH and sign up to the BBQ Nation!
