Guitar Bomb is a one-man drunken tour through the beat-up shanties and tear-soaked bar tops of clubs and coffee houses off the beaten path of mainstream acoustic music. With a guitar style that’s rooted in the blues and a voice that bares resemblance to Taylor Hollingsworth, Tom Devigne (who is Guitar Bomb) has managed to throw together an album that will appeal to fans of both Tom Waits and The Stooges.
Of the eight songs offered there is not one I would refuse, but when pushed to make a request, I would have to shout for “American Holiday” — a slow building blues/punk breakdown that sounds almost too much like “No Wow” by The Kills. It may not be the most original piece of writing on the album, but it’s the one that I keep coming back to.
