Gary Cain Band - Twangadelic Bluesophunk - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Twangadelic Bluesophunk from Gary Cain Band and it's a cool mix or country finger pickin', blues and rock. Opening with Live Wire, Tom Nagy on bass really drives this track with his tight bass riffs and Donnie McDougall hangs tight on drums and Gary Cain mixes finger picking and speed metal riffs for a cool sound. On heavy bottomed, Pipes and Spoons, Cain moves more into a dark blues' sound with a crunchy guitar sound and the swagger of ZZ Top. Very cool. With it's unusual guitar riff and it's solid rhythm, No Foolin' is one of the coolest tracks on the release. Funky, Write You A Letter is a solid rocker with traces of Led Zep. Twang Strut is a real nice instrumental showcase for Cain's finger picking' work. Another ZZ Top oriented track, Got Me Where You Want Me has a stripped down feel with a hard driving beat and crunchy guitar riffs. Girl's Too Rich is a bit jazzier with a Light Latin touch and a guitar style that has come to be associated with SRV. Very cool. Wrapping the release is instrumental, Faith Healer with really nice lead melody played on guitar. Cain pulls emotional riff after riff from his guitar creating a Gary Moore like soaring dynamic. Excellent closer for a real cool release.

  1. I read about this band in a review reposted over on a few days ago - no doubt that Gary Cain is a player for sure...dynamite band as well...I love that cover, but the title is indeed a mouthful for a Blues record LOL
