Bloodshot Red
 
Bloodshot Red Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $12.00
Artist: Popular Creeps

The debut release from four guys (including Lenny Grassa, formerly of The Leonards) from Detroit who are doing their part to keep a no frills, bar band brand of rock ‘n roll alive.  They cite influences such as Grandpa, Ray Davies, Robert Pollard, Paul Westerberg (circa “Let It Be”), and Rick Nielson.  “Opener ‘Out of My Head,’ features a nice, twangy ‘Dr. Robert’-like bounce. There’s an instrumental bridge that’s flavored with a little rockabilly /alt-country twang before launching into the final verse. It’s clear that the band’s dues have been paid in the school of constructing tight, tuneful songs.  ‘Blue’ further ventures into alt-country turf, the realm of Crazy Horse, R.E.M….this is where the Leonards connection is very apparent. The song also has a little Stones swagger, a tight, precise and distorted guitar solo, and that indelible Gram Parsons influence on the songwriting of Mick and Keith.  It’s especially notable on this track that bassist Joe Heaphy knows exactly what to do during the guitar solos…both he and drummer Dave Nantais anchor, punctuate, and propel it. These are seasoned road warriors in action folks.  ‘Down And Out’ opens with a sound that could have come from the first Eagles album, but the mojo of the band is really closer to the genial sneer of guys like Jason Ringenberg and Warner Hodges in Jason & The Scorchers, and the whole Uncle Tupelo/Son Volt/Wilco phenomenon.   Other highlights include ‘Fade Away,’ which leans on the ‘Punk’ in ‘Cowpunk,’ specifically mid-tempo Ramones and New Wave/power pop bands of the 80’s.  Lights’ is another mid-tempo track, and you’ll really hear the Replacements connection here.  The band covers a lot of ground on this album, and they do it all seamlessly.” – ThereOnceWasANote.com   Find the nearest bar these guys are playing and plan yourself and friends a night out of honest, straightforward, guitar-laden garage rock!  GREAT!!
