ABOUT

2 piece Psychedelic blues rocksters.
With just drums and electric guitar this overdriven combo cook up a potent brew of backwoods hoodoo and
psychedelic garage blues. The result is undiluted juke joint grit and barrelhouse bawling, with a firm nod in the direction of The White Stripes, The John Spencer Blues Explosion, The Black Keys and Fat Possum Records.
