DRUNK HORSE In Tongues Tee Pee (2005)
One thing that struck me as I listened to this lot was Thin Lizzy. In fact
it was Thin Lizzy playing stoner rock very well.
There are times when Eli Eckhert sounds like he is chanelling Phil Lynott. This is not a bad thing
however; helping this CD to be quite a good listen. Unlike so many bands
trying to ape QOTSA and the "desert sound" this bunch have brought some much
needed originality to the murky depths of stoner rock.
The fact they have a song on here called 'Howard Philips' which I am sure is about HP Lovecraft
does rather help their rating in my mind. Thier recording sessions were
haunted by the spirit of Toto's Jeff Pocaro for f**k's sake expressing his
opinion on their drum sound. Ah sod it. This is a bloody good sludge
metal/rock that deserves the attention of you and your bong. Just go get the
freaking thing k?
