...I've got to have it now. The Clutch connection is still in play as JP Gastor who played drums on "The Mystery Spot" CD Mystery Spotagain makes his appearance on the 11 tracks of this new CD.

Five Horse Johnson is:
Eric Oblander...Vocals & Harp
Brad Coffin...Vocals & Guitar
Steve Smith...Bass
Phil Dürr...Guitar

Additional Musicians:
Jean Paul Gaster...Drums..Yee Ha!
Robin Zander...Vocals on "You're My Girl (I Don't Want To Talk About It)"
J. Robbins...Organ, Percussion

The music is generously doused in blues influence and driving heavy rock that, unsurprisingly, stands on common ground with latter-day Clutch releases. From Beale Street to Oblivion (Dlx) (Dig) (Ocrd) These two bands trade back and forth on several outings.

I read...

"The blues means many things to many people. To some, the purists, it is the scratchy honesty of Robert Johnson with his devil-fueled fretwork. To others, it is the giants that followed him, from Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters to the Kings - Albert and BB. To others still, it is the rock 'n' roll that those old guys influenced, be it Cream, the Stones or early Fleetwood Mac.

The truth, of course, is that the blues is whatever you want it to be. If a group of musicians wants to drink a few beers or a quart of bourbon, smoke some unfiltered cigarettes, plug in a guitar, see what happens and call it the blues, who are we to argue?

When Five Horse Johnson formed back in 1995, referring to itself as a Blues Band, a few brows might well have been furrowed.

Okay, there really aren't many bands that can work the enough forbidden alchemy to meld psychedelic, blues, and heavy rock into gold the way Five Horse Johnson does so on their new album "The Taking Of Blackheart"(Small Stone Records/2013). If you're thinking the sound is reminiscent of Clutch, you're not delusional, since the bands share the same drummer--J.P. Gaster. These guys are no weak-sister, having been around now for 17 years and six albums--the latest of which was recorded at The Magpie Cage, Baltimore, MD. A fantastic, hard-driven record that wipes clear the splattered windshield of modern music; scraping the dead husks of repetitive soulless tunes from our visage--put the pedal down, the road is clear ahead.

Format: Audio CD
7th album from Toledo, Ohio band--cranked-up, hard `n' heavy, classic blues guitar/harp boogie
rock with a Southern feel, played by some veteran musicians who know their way around the
almighty riff and clearly enjoy layin' it all out with passion. They're the kind of band you might
hear while waking by the corner dive bar that would make you turn around and go inside.
Includes a cover of the underground classic "You're My Girl" (originally found on Rhinoceros'
1968 debut LP) with vocals from Robin Zander of Cheap Trick! Reminiscent of Savoy Brown,
the Climax Blues Band, Endless Boogie, Firebird, the Black Crowes, Halfway To Gone.
