THE ZEN BUDDAH BOOT BOYS - "Icons"
PRODUCED BY LEGENDARY SEX PISTOLS PRODUCER DAVE GOODMAN.
The Zen Buddah Boot Boys CD "Icons" featuring Gary O'Dea.
" If this album does not prove that you don't have to leave these shores
to find authentic country blues with soul, then there's no justice. Get
your first Christmas present of the year 2000 (and its only March). Do
what you have to do - beg, steal or borrow, but BUY IT."
''produced by Dave Goodman it's a sort of sung and semi-spoken swamp
n' dust roads stew of Stones, Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Guthrie and Rory McLeod.
Well worth tracking down''
''Exile On Main Street''- styled acoustic country blues''
"The Zen Buddah Boot Boys are an outfit put together by Gary Lammin (ex
- Cocksparrer and The Little Roosters) who also include in their ranks
Darrell Bath (Ian Hunter Band, Dogs D' Amour) and various folk, country
and rock luminaries such as Jim Houghton (Gentleman Bandits) and Gary
O'Dea (Brummie troubadour, Love Hound and Gentleman Bandit). Their debut
album was produced by none other than renowned producer Dave Goodman.
Delivered with a distinct emphasis on the acoustic, there's a country/blues
atmosphere at times reminiscent of the dark, gothic moments of Nick Cave's
'Murder Ballads'. Elsewhere they're just as likely to offer hints of early
Stones and Faces r' n' b…It's a loose, attractive sound…content enough
to revel in its own laid back groove."
