• goon mat and lord benardo Take Off Your Clothes (CD, £13.95)

    label: Voodoo Rhythm

    THIS IS THE NEW GROOVE FOR ALL YOU HIP BLUES TRASH KIDS, WALK INTO THE JUKE JOINT WITH THE GOON MAT AND HIS DRINKING BUDDY LORD BENARDO AND GET YOUR ROOTS BLUES KICK TODAY! THE GOON MAT AND LORD BENARDO formed in LIEGE BELGIUM around 2009 after Stinky Lou (Bass) has left the band to open up his own bar (Lou's Bar)! But still, they are the hottest 'n' tightest ROOTS BOOGIE BLUES Duo on the European Continent, they set EVERY HOUSE ON FIRE! In No Time! For this album they hooked up with Jim Diamond (the Dirtbombs, the White Stripes, the Devils) who recorded and produced them in the South of France. And so you here THE GOON MAT flying high on a HYPNOTIC drone to the grave of Junior Kimbrough and LORD BERNARDO who lost his mind and plays the most demented and groovin' harp you'll ever heard for the next decades!!! This is the new groove for all you hip and no hip Blues Punk Kids! Walk into the juke joint with the Goon Mat & his drinking buddy Lord Benardo and dance to the groove of the Belgium Swamp Trash! They own technical skills likely to a young ELMORE JAMES and the kind of rawness we know from IGGY AND HIS STOOGES. They are trippin' out Like JUNIOR KIMBROUGH driving fast like R.L. BURNSIDE and keeping lyrics low as the all mighty T- Model Ford... These partisan blues men are out for trouble .. and mothers and fathers beware of your daughter cause the BLUES TRASH cats are on the prowl! TRACKLISTING: 01. BECAUSE OF YOU 02. GET DOWN WITH YOU 03. CONCEPTION OF THE BLUES 04. TONIGHT IS THE NIGHT 05. TAKE OFF YOUR CLOTHES 06. TRIED 07. DANCE WITH ME 08. LILLE GIRL 09. BABE 10. SHOW ME THE WAY 11. VOODOO GOT ME
