Wrong Numbers EP

we are on a podcast for WHFR radio and the garage punk podcast



Like when my friend Nick comes rushing in to the Garden Bowl in a state of wonder and tells me I have to get next door NOW to see Sam Cooke. "These white guys... it's like Motown. Or the Stax Records sound... you've got to see this." Those are persuasive comparisons so I obliged. But what I found (the Wrong Numbers) hurt my brain as much as it stirred my soul, starting with the lead singer's fake chest hair. He was dressed out in like ten layers of irony -- mullet, pencil mustache, a retro jean jacket a few sizes too small --- all capped off with a sleeveless rayon blouse thing unbuttoned to the navel and revealing a black triangle of man fur scribbled onto his chest and stomach with a Sharpie. The triangle wanted to draw me in and I could hardly take my eyes off it. But when I did I noticed that the Hammond player was that guy from the Sights. And the guitarist was Matt Thibodeau, who used to play with Stunning Amazon before he got sick and almost died, and then didn't. Here he was resurrected for my blues entertainment, lanky and bobbling like a ghoulish puppet.

But yeah, Nick was right. The band were killing it.
