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!

Annie Gator Records artist: J.J. Vicars - Irreverent Dissident - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Irreverent Dissident, from J.J. Vicars and it's solid rocker. Opening with Los Vatos in A,  a sympathetic guitar interlude, this release is off to a good start. Long Way From Home is a ragged garage rocker with Vicars on vocal and guitar, Anthony Lumpp on bass and Danny Lumpp on drums. With the swagger of early Stones, Vicars charges right into Dixon's Wang Dang Doodle. Excellent! Slow blues, Outskirts of Town, has rich guitar chords with Robert Johnson on piano and drums and Denny Wright on bass. Vicars' guitar soloing is full of tension and feeling. Stinky Twinky is a super piano boogie instrumental featuring Big Jay McNeely on sax, Doug Oscard on drums and tasty guitar riffs from Vicars. Instrumental, Downhome stays in the boogie groove with Vicars leading the way on guitar. Excellent! Deguello is an interesting quasi classical composition with cool electric guitar over arpeggiated chords. Very nice. Three-toed Midget is a bluegrass style track featuring Richie Kindler on banjo, Kyle Crison on bassand mandolin and Jen Conley on ukelele. Clever. Wrapping the release is an alternate version of Stinky Twinky putting you in mind of the great Gatemouth Brown. Excellent closer.
