Blues and Snake - Blues and Snake

A frenzied merging of styles that has produced a bastard offspring born with no name but
in true tradition has taken the name 'Blues and Snake, the sound conjures up images like no other with its harsh raw un-pedalled guitar thrashed like it was an extension of a true tortured soul while the blues playing tin sandwich was given a blowback of billie and stuffed into the mouth of a hardcore punk who spews raw energy through its reeds the 'Blues and Snake' band are coming near you or at least they inspire the fear that they could be coming near you.

The band have captured that live feel that is sought after by so many but rarely captured
on a recording. The bands name give a strong clue to their orientation but fuelled by teenage explosive energy they have taken the sounds of the deep south from the blues harmonica sound of the fifties, the psychedelic sound of the sixties and the hardcore punk explosion of the eighties and brewed it together with English verve to produce a mesmerising explosion of unbridled party sound to rock your socks off.

Opening the album with the track 'You've Struck Gold' a brutal metal riff, and an onslaught of rock drumming the band grab your attention before abounding this and simplifying the sound with thrashed up pyscadelia, the blues harmonica chords on speed and raging vocals. They keep this recipe going with the second track 'Fine Just Fine' before erupting into the party frenzied sound of 'Sailing To The Moon', if this doesn’t get your house party wrecked then you must have some pretty strange people at your party’s.

Utilising some vocal sound clips to add authenticity to their deep south origin's we have 'Unforgivable' and 'Dirty Woman' that sound like the energy could of come straight out of a backyard party with moonshine filled gaiety before rounding of this with 'My Grass', then we are plunged back into the bands heavy thrash melding with 'Fishing For Green' and then on the eight track we have the Hendrix vocals of 'Sexy Lady' The last four tracks
run through the bands full spectrum of styles and reminds you that they are more then just a strange retro band but have crafted a true alternative sound
