Many bands have dreamed of making a record that is a combination of Exile on Main Street and Physical Graffiti. Few could pull it off. You get a feeling that something was up like this for Big Midnight when they recorded the songs for "Everything For The First Time." Big Midnight is a band from San Francisco. Some of them were in the Richmond Sluts. The lead singer reminds me of Iggy. Many people in NYC might be familiar with The Witnesses. Bid Midnight seem like they are taking music a step further. They take all the lessons of garage rock and british music and do something really interesting. They were one of the few bands that shook up the place at the recent LA Shakedown. Every song on this record is a hit. I could see them with many backup singers and a brass section. Things can only get better and better for Big Midnight. I look forward to seeing them play live again.

This album is the real deal. If you are a Richmond Sluts fan, then you probably already know that Big Midnight is basically the new incarnation of the Richmond Sluts. If you are a Sluts fan, and don't have this album, get it now! If you are not familliar with either band, think The Stooges meets The Stones with a scoop of New York Dolls thrown in. Grab this album and get ready for some raw, powerful Rock -n- Roll!

Maybe with a little luck and the right management, Big Midnight could be the next Stooges or, at the very least, fill in the gaps between Iggy Pop solo albums and Stooges reunion jaunts. Those who would've thunk this type of Motor City muscle would crawl out of California, a place good for nothing much more than beer commercial music these days, please raise your hand.

Not since The Left, on their 1985 EP "Last Train To Hagerstown" (I know, I know - obscurity is my specialty), has anyone come as close to capturing the same type of lightning in a jar, er, turd in a punchbowl that Iggy, the brothers Asheton, and James Williamson did at the cusp of the 70's (and beyond) in the sleepy little college town of Ann Arbor, Michigan as these guys have (no small feat - just ask The Trolls). Besides apparently trying to best Iggy's record on Disc 5 of "1970: The Complete Funhouse Sessions" for saying the words "all right," what's immediately unsettling about singer Shea Roberts' voice on opening cut "Doin' All Right" is how much he sounds like the world's forgotten boy, circa "Kill City," the collection of demos Iggy did with James Williamson during his mid-70's period of uh, refocus. And did I mention the song swings like a motherf*cker?

In fact much of "Everything For The First Time," from the keyboards down to the production (by Roberts and Jeff Saltzman) seem to echo what is perhaps the great lost album of the Iggy/Stooges canon. Refusing to play entirely to their strength of honking, dribbling, drooling, blasts of grit like "Doin' All Right" and "Little Miss Mercy", Big Midnight temper "Everything For The First Time" with downright moody, bleak, and sometimes excruciating sonic pap like "All The Dreams," "Spent Too Much," and the piano-driven "Trying To Get By.

I like the singer's hair. It makes him look like a douche. But, you know, the kind of douche that can rock. Like a "rock-douche" of some sort.
