It seems once you try to pin this down to a genre, they turn around and change on you. The first track hit me like kick-ass electric smoky bar blues, complete with nasty sax and a great, great vocalist (Tom Ray), while the next minute, they've gone and played a sultry tango number with flamenco guitar and even better, nastier horns. However, instead of seeming like they're stretching themselves out too far, trying to do everything at once and trying to cover all their musical bases, they ease into each new song and genre as easy as breathing. If there is any one theme here, it seems to be alcohol, or drunk women, or both, and that, too, seems to be an easy topic for these guys to write about.
