Jason & the Scorchers
Midnight Roads & Stages Seen
Jason’s band is aptly named. These guys’ll scorch your eardrums with their hellfire country-rock guitar riffs. The twelve cuts on this CD were recorded live in Nashville a few months ago, and they’re likely to peel the paint off your walls.
The disc includes some new material, a couple of songs which the band never performed live before. The highlight of the set is an amazing cover of Dylan’s “Absolutely Sweet Marie.” These guys have been kicking ass for nearly twenty years, and they show no signs of letting up. Mammoth Records, 101 B Street, Carrboro NC 27510.
