DADDY LONG LEGS – EVIL EYE ON YOU
(Norton 382 LP/CD) Here comes the long awaited debut platter from Brooklyn’s most blues wailing stompers Daddy Long Legs! Trust us – there’s no Fedora hat, third rate wanky, watered down Chicago blues in these grooves! For fans of Howlin’ Wolf, Captain Beefheart, Little Walter, Flamin Groovies, Kid Thomas and Dr. Feelgood! A dozen pounding workoutsDeath Train Blues / I Feel So Electric / Happy Home / Shackin’ Up / You’ll Be Mine / Witch Hunt / Trouble (Always Come My Ways) / Sittin’ Shotgun / Comin’ After Me / Candy Sue / Thirty Days / Evil Eye Dig it on fabulous footlong LP and pocket size compact disc, too!
From the esteemed Norton Records label comes one of the wildest and most exciting groups of the current roots and blues revolution! Daddy Long Legs-named for its harp-blowing, blues-bellowing frontman, is a blues hollerer who blurs any definition by age or color. He growls, barks, yelps, and wails without sounding like an imitation of anyone or anything. This is simply pull-the-cord-and-let-the-snot-fly blues.
His partners in crime are cut from the same sweat-and-whiskey-soaked cloth. Guitarist Murat Akturk cranks out everything from powerhouse country blues rhythms to slinky-assed multi-stringed slide riffs that bump and grind up against Daddy Long Legs’ harp. Drummer/percussionist Josh Styles keeps it simple and right on, sometimes locking in with his bandmates for a triple-punch deep-as-Hell-itself groove; other times head-down and leading the charge himself, slamming shovelfuls of coal into the beast.
The resulting gutsy, rocking blues spans the gamut from the churning romp of the album opener “Death Train Blues” to the nasty hoodoo stomp of ”Evil Eye” that closes things down. Yeah, you’ve heard players bring the train into the station before – but by the time Daddy Long Legs wrestles the thing to a halt, everyone’s covered in sweat.
Their ”Evil Eye On You” LP was definitely not an attempt to domesticate the sound of Daddy Long Legs in a studio setting; the twelve cuts are wild and wooly and real. Infuse a few hisses and pops into the tracks and it would be easy to believe this music was recorded a few decades ago, but no – Daddy Long Legs is happening right now, boys and girls.
DADDY LONG LEGS presents here their debut full-length Norton label offering, EVIL EYE ON YOU, a showcase of the trio’s finest original proclamations, set in a sparse black and white selection that is meaty beyond definition.
Keep your evil ear on DADDY LONG LEGS. Else they put the EVIL EYE ON YOU.
