Blues Trash Steamroller BOSS HOG Creates A Satanic Sonic Inferno In Belgium…

BOSS HOG – Vooruit, Gent – 3 November 2017

If you like your blues rough, devilish, dirty and burning as hell you’ll be as ecstatic
as I am about the spectacular return of BOSS HOG. After 16 years this glowing gang
featuring legendary blues junkie Jon Spencer and his charismatic wife and ex-Pussy
Galore
tiger Cristina Martinez released new album BROOD X earlier this year. The longplayer bellows viciously as if the 5-piece band is involved in a merciless, sonic fight
with evil demons, with unsightly cacodemons and anything nasty in daily life on this troubled planet. A deranged pièce de résistance, a nasty triumph. Have a slice here…

Yesterday the band nailed it gloriously in my hometown Ghent. A trashing steamroller from start to finish. Spencer still plays like a hellbent obsessive who only functions when producing an electrifying stream of messy riffs Satan listens to 24/7. He makes lighting sounding like thunder while the irresistibly eye-catching Martinez moves from left to right and back like a hungry snake on two legs. She looks like a voodoo priestess who’s after your wicked soul and growls freakishly, assisted now and then by Jon’s striking vox, like the apocalypse is just around the corner, and she hits the shit out of her big drum like it was the last thing she ever will do. Volcanic stuff extra fueled by a roaring rhythm section and spiced with sultry keys. If you want any day of the year feels like a smashing Halloween party here’s the one and only soundtrack to do the job…

Voodoo rituals…


And on guitar… Lucifer


Partners in crime…


Looking for sinful souls…


Wham big bang…

Blues Rock Gang BOSS HOG Ready To Inflame Europe – Here’s ‘SHH SHH SHH’ To Get Us All In A Voodoo Mood…

John Spencer and his New York blues-punks BOSS HOG fronted by his charismatic wife Cristina Martinez released, last March, their very first new album in nearly two decades. BROOD X is a mighty, robust beast of a record filled with a series of dynamite killers. Dark, ominous and firing. The torrid kick-ass clan will invade Europe at the end of this month for several concerts. Check the cities and dates here. Until then we’ll have this smoking taster to prepare us for the storm. Here’s one of the nastiest cuts on the new longplayer, the spine-tingling SHH SHH SHH with Martinez explaining “The lyrics began as an exercise in
free association. I imagined a place of chaos, panic, and loss of control and that’s what emerged.”
Yes, Halloween is just around the corner…
