Poison Smile (Explicit)

Poison Smile by American Dog
Released: May 2012
Label: Bad Reputation
Several mostly self-released collections in, the Ohio biker-fest regulars just might be the 21st century's most reliably hard-rocking band, at least in the correct Rose Tattoo or mid-'70s Nugent sense of the phrase. Pre-nutso Nugeness dominates this time, blatantly in the "Sweet Sally" update "Splinterin' Sally" and the secret "Wango Tango" emerging from a closing Cramps cover -- one of three dog-titled tunes. Other signposts: "Raw Power" vocal rhythm, Jim Dandy Mangrum, late-period Alice Cooper (in the unusually draggy strip-poled title cut), whiskey blackouts, flushed toilets, Charlie Sheen.
