Long John & The Killer Blues Collective - Heavy Electric Blues album review

The best Blues you can get this month

Cover art for Long John & The Killer Blues Collective - Heavy Electric Blues album

Long John Laundry’s latest project is the darkest shade of blues. A growl and skudded beat drive My Soul Rising, before Preacher’s House pairs manic piano to a feral delivery. Devil’s Train is jetblack rockabilly, while Big Man’s Got A Fat Chicken has the kind of barfly leer that gets restraining orders taken out.
