Black Joe Lewis - Skulldiggin'

Single review by

Filthy, dirty, fuzzed-up groove of awesomeness? Check. Galactus-sized drums? God damn check. The best hollerin' this side of Jon Spencer's flares? Oh my fucking good-god, check! And so we are given the ingredients that deliver to us the gargantuan delight that is the latest groove beast from Black Joe Lewis. And it could only be called one thing: 'Skulldiggin'.

This is the sound coursing through Samuel L Jackson's veins when he declaims "Enough is enough! I have had it with these motherf*cking snakes on this motherf*cking plane!". It is the sound the best sex you are yet to have. It is the sound of you swan-diving into a pool filled with wet wonder and earthly pleasures. It is the sound to make a bloody wet afternoon be the hottest night on Sunset as you glide on ya platforms from the Whiskey to the Viper. It is all topped-off with the most fuzzed-out solo since, well since Mr Les Paul gave us his electric gift and Mr. Marshall turned it up to eleven. Skulldiggin' will posses you, it is one spirit that you are gonna want to let infect you to the core. Hell yeah!
