Seasick Steve - 'Hubcap Music'

Seasick Steve - 'Hubcap Music'

Album Info

  • Release Date: April 29, 2013
  • Label: Polydor
3 / 10 Two years after last album 'You Can't Teach An Old Dog New Tricks', beardy Californian bluesman Seasick Steve is back, and this time he's made an instrument out of two hubcaps and a garden hoe. You'd have thought the 71-year-old two-time Brit-nominated major-label artist might have made a trip to Denmark Street to get himself a proper guitar by now, but the purring pickup truck at the outset and conclusion remind us just how down-at-heel and blue-collar he really is. Questions of authenticity are irrelevant when tracks such as 'Down On The Farm' deliver the kind of boogie-woogie twattery Shania Twain would have her writing team skinned for. Avoid this tosh at all costs.
