The Hard Stuff


view review here

No one stretches three chords - heck, make that one chord - more than our man George. For proof look no further than the lead-off, sliding guitar title track (with a bass line that sounds remarkably like that of the classic '70s hit I Dig You, by Brit punk act Cult Hero) by the self-described "world's greatest bar band." And what's a Destroyers album without carefully selected covers by rock and blues pioneers like Fats Domino (Hello Josephine, complete with horns), Chester Burnett (Moving) and John Lee Hooker (the ferocious Huckle up Baby)? A terrific blues album from one of the genre's living legends.
