LEFT LANE CRUISER - Rock Them Back to Hell digipack - CD
Freddy J IV and Brenn Beck are back with an album of voodoo hillbilly punk-blues. Recorded in Fort Wayne IN, and mixed in Detroit by Jim Diamond, ñRock Them Back To Hell!î sees the duo expanding their sonic palette by adding bass, harmonica, organ, and ñtrash percussionî (that would be a cardboard box, a paint tin, trash can and an electrified five-gallon bucket). The result is an album to wake up the dead, and rock it back to hell! The ñhell-billiesî cover art is the work of renowned artist William Stout (Return Of The Living Dead, Invaders From Mars, PanÍs Labyrinth).
Freddy J. Evans IV (guitar/vocals) and Brenn ñSausage Pawî Beck (drummer/ñtrashî/vocals), a powerhouse duo out of Fort Wayne, Indiana, are roots-music revolutionaries who take no prisoners. – POPMATTERS
As soon as the opening riff kicks in, you know that Left Lane Cruiser isn't a traditional country blues band. The Indiana duo might well have influences from the Mississippi area, but what they do with them is fresh and coruscating. - CLASSIC ROCK / UK
An authentic and inspiring updating of the blues-rock idiom for the 21st century. – BLOGCRITICS
They sound like a couple of unhinged punk hillbillies raised on the North Mississippi hill country blues of R.L. Burnside and Junior Kimbrough. They mine the same sort of modal blues territory but, with half-distorted vocals pushed through what sounds like a shorted-out karaoke mike, they also sound like a lo-fi swampy version of the Stooges, all full of rampaging impatience. - ALL MUSIC
