JACK RABBIT SLIM : From The Waist Down
Welcome to Jack Rabbit Slim's world. The Kings of Sleaze-a-Billy return with their third album on, and it's a killer!
Opening with a couple of tracks, delivered with that pounding trademark JRS stamp... but there is much more to this album than the usual hardcore rockin', that we have come to expect from the most exciting live act on the scene.
The reworking of Presley's weak film fodder, Wolf Call, is simply inspired. From the
moment that dirty guitar breaks out, it's as low down, (well below the waist...) as it gets.
Then suddenly, back up Buddy, the mood changes for the Holly-esque, Rest Assured, with a soft, clean cut Lubbock Texas sound.
Then ... wham, the tortured vocal powerhouse Burnette treatment is given to Let Me Home Baby.
This stuff just shouldn't be allowed. JRS have already caused quite a stir on both sides of the Atlantic, with their irreverent 50's style rockin music with that savage Jack Rabbit Slim kick. I love 'em, but make no mistake, these boys are all going straight to hell.
