These guys are not polished musicians. They're like a drive-in B-grade movie with Bruce Dern in The Incredible Two Headed Transplant. The album Voodoo Trucker is their tribute to truck driving music, but creep'd out. As they say. Fun stuff with beer in hand. Like the liner notes explain, "in the studio, we do two takes only, and if we screw it up we don't use it. Our fans would know it if it sounded polished". Wished I'd a been able to see them play live. Found out about them too late. Deadbolt. The most dangerous band in the world they billed themselves. Twang and macabre music.

One of my favorite Dub albums from Hopeton Brown, aka, Scientist. Here, he's Dubbing Culture's album Payday I listed earlier from this thread. Dub is reggae's ode to the engineer's creativity in the control room. Hence the term, "Dread at the controls". Mainly instrumental mix of what the band lay'ed down for whatever song recorded. Heavily altered with fades and all manner of shenanigans the engineer congers. In the case of Scientist, one of the first, foremost and formidable, along with King Tubby. Scientist also was and still is a brilliant craftsman with clean detailed mixes on conventional tracks for artists. Seeing his name associated with credits means great fidelity.

Scientist Dubs Culture Into A Parallel Universe.

How fun is that?!!

I kind of like "Gorillaz" sometimes for catchy little beats.

I've been on a John Hiatt Kick lately. Past 2 days actually.

His voice takes some getting used to, but he can write love songs like no other and he's one of the most underrated guitarists of our time.

IMO.

Yes, John Hiatt is a fine song writer, guitarist and I like his unpolished voice. That's what makes R&R real. If you don't know this collaboration it's really nice too. Teaming up with Jim Kiltner, Ry Cooder and Nick Lowe calling themselves, Little Village in the early 90's. Indie rock superstars collectively.

Thanks for the reminder. I have listened to their stuff in the past and it's pretty good. With that lineup, how could it not be, right?

I had to go digging to resurrect this thread. But I've enjoyed listening to this record now for a few sessions, wondering why I'd put it back in the less played stacks. They only released one album during their tenure. I was fortunate enough to see their act and it wasn't lacking. These boys laid down some high quality rock & roll. Straight ahead no chaser. Now I can't get the album tunes outta my friggin mind.

I remember hearing them on the radio in the early 1980s. The song "Teacher, Teacher" was in relatively heavy rotation on the Tulsa radio stations. Thanks for the post to bring 'em back into memory!

Makes me also remember "Twilight Zone" (when the bullet hits the bone) from Golden Earring, which also was in heavy rotation around the same time. Had a similar feel. And another catchy "one hit wonder" from the early 1980s was "Driver's Seat" by Sniff 'n' the Tears.

Lots good memories of cruising Memorial Drive in a hotrod listening to those songs. Either in my best friend Monte's '68 Mustang with an all-out wheelie-pullin' 351-Cleveland or my 1972 Mazda RX-2 with headers and a Holley carb. Good times.

Your personal American Graffiti during your cruisin period. We had a drive-in like that here, where the gear heads would lay scratch around the parking lot. Nothin like a burger and burning rubber. I'd forgotten about Drivers Seat. But a swift tube search complete the link to my memory, and Golden Earring. Them's were the days.
Hope other people post in on this thread. It's nice to hear what someone's getting their groove on.
