Juke Joint Pimps
Boogie The House Down – Juke Joint Style

From the ever bountiful bowels of the Deutsche delta, Mr Beat-Man once again unceremoniously summonses a sharp-dressed pair of juicily jousting Memphistoleros brandishing filthy funk judderfuck blues dereliction. With a slew of originals sucking pips from the likes of Dust My Broom and Rollin’ And Tumblin’ along with I Can’t Be Satisfied like old Elmore James and mandrake Muddy jumping up and down on the devil playing harp thru his entrails and using his liver as a bass drum beater this devil drunk duo aren’t perhaps quite as eviscerating as other VR releases (see 12 bar bonkers Bruges bruisers Stinky Lou And The Goon Mat With Lord Bernardo) but virulent voodoo muck like Constipated Blues and their dainty reacquainting of howlin’ Harpo’s Hip Shake as Dick Shake easily tears up the sickly buttery brulee in blues magazines and still may make you salivate outta unexpected places and slither into voracious and quite vertigo-inducing appetites. Amen. Slip ‘em some skin. Stu Gibson
