I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Last Resort Mexico - The Blind Dead McJones Band - New Release Review

I've got something a little different here. I just received the new release, Last Resort Mexico, from The Blind Dead Mc Jones Band. Although definitely a blues based band, this band is more along the lines of The Dwarfs, Gas Huffer or maybe Mudhoney. If you like your blues with a bit of punk and a lot of you go. Blind Dead Mc Jones is a blues rocker with telling of things to come. Hang On There Boys is a bit more of a straight up rocker. It's got all of the components that I have described and if you like that sound... it's here and strong. B3D is more of a story telling song with the eerie background. Try Some Wrong starts off with a cool guitar riff and sounds a bit more bluesy but still with a lot of grit... say half way between the Keys and the Pistols. Not bad at all. Rumblehead lays back into the punk rock grit but a bit more polished. Real Cool Time is a bit more loose and has a cool sound. BOOBZ keeps the roll not changing a lot from earlier tunes. The track has a story telling segment and a rocking segment. Haunted is a frantic rocker again with a punky edge... possibly the best track on the cd, just reinforcing the intentions of the recording. Elephant On A Lead is another cool track with a story told behind a loose rhythm track. I like it! Last Resort Mexico takes the rocker route again more Motorhead than Muddy but very cool. Guitarist Alex Eden cuts loos with an uncharacteristic guitar solo on this track. Wolf Howl is straight up blues, provided on this bonus track. Now of course it will always have a twist but gives the band a chance to stretch out. The band is Ben "Buddy" Slack  Guitar, vocals, Andy "the cake" Johnson" Bass, BV's and Steve "Wee-Man" Nixon on Drums and BV . If you like it rough... and you like a little punk... get in line. This may be your bag! If you like what I’m doing, Like ---Bman’s Blues Report--- Facebook Page! I’m looking for great talent and trying to grow the audience for your favorites band! ”LIKE”
