Force 9 by King Mob
Released: Feb 2012
Label: King Mob Recordings
These mostly sixtysomething Londoners -- including guitar god Chris Spedding and Pretenders drummer Martin Chambers -- show pub-punk upstarts like Jim Jones Revue how it's done, with nasty but nimble boogiebilly chops in the tradition of Link Wray, The Yardbirds, Dr. Feelgood and recent Jace Everett. They're old enough to know how to temper heavy blues knuckle-dragging with jazz smoke and Sun Studios echo. "Selene Selene" is a tough noirish stomp, "American Slaves" a hard-swung shuffle about Western decline. Then they end with some Diddley-beat space-train hoodoo about the band.
