Wooden Wand & The Omen Bones Band
Another foray into fuzz caked talking blues by RSTB fave Wooden Wand. This time bringing along the twin assets of Satya Sai and Keith Wood, this disc acts as an extension of the tour only EP the three produced a while back. Horus of the Horizon sees release through Three Lobed's Modern Containment CD series. The EP features Toth in true dusty bard fashion with cautionary tales aplenty and sitting sidearm is Keith Wood, his guitar heavy with a fuzz interlude or two to churn up the dust. A much less polished affair than anything that turned up on Second Attention but somehow this is how Toth comes off at his best. The performance is off the cuff, road songs laid to tape for a weeks pay and off to the next back room show. Talking blues melt into an inky night psychedelic resurrection into murky rings of wah pedal smoke and right back again; further proof that these are two of this generation's leading songwriters doing exactly what they were born to do. The CD is available from Three Lobed as part of the mail order series featuring Kinski, Mothus, Sunburned Hand of the Man, MV + EE and more or you can pick it up at Fusetron.
