Yeah, â€œthatâ€™s what she saidâ€, right brother? So sayeth JOHNNY HASH on this absolutely immortal 1993 single that came out on IN THE RED, and is still vinyl-only unless you search high & low for a Japanese CD that had a bunch of old singles from the label. I love the stupid-sloppy slide guitar, the drawly vocals, the â€œbreakdownâ€ guitar solo, and the general garbage-blues piss take of this whole thing. One critic of low renown called it:
Drunken, animalistic slide guitar blues, backed with precision cardboard-box drumming and barked vocals. A gnarly, no-fidelity blues trash masterpiece that still makes me weep with desire for the LP that never came from these guys.
Itâ€™s genius. In fact the 45 was actually called â€œBlues Is Depressingâ€ , but I feel like itâ€™s a joyous, rapturous celebration of life the way these yokels play it. Let me know if you agree.
