5.0 out of 5 stars gritty, soulful, good-time garage rock October 22, 2011
Format:Audio CD
3rd album under his solo pseudonym from Memphis legend and member of the Oblivians and
the Compulsive Gamblers. This is pure grab-you-by-the-balls gritty garage rock, that moves
through bluesy funk, boogie grunt rhythms, 50s rock, smokey bump `n' grind soul, indie roots
rock, 60s psych pop & more. "Rat City" is the sound of a master of the genre having fun, and it
shows. One of those albums where there's "nuthin' fancy" happening, but everything you need
to get down and rock! Includes covers of songs by Billy Swan, Tommy James & the Shondells,
Slim Green, Jewell & the Rubies. Reminiscent of Jay Reatard, the Gories, the Urges, the Detroit
