Too Slim and The Taildraggers are back with more rock than blues
Another new album provides the material for today’s #TrackOfTheDay. Once again today’s ear candy comes from the other side of the pond via Too Slim and The Taildraggers and their latest album Blood Moon. Our selection from this album is the opener Evil Mind, which for anyone who isn’t familiar with Too Slim, will show you exactly what they are all about.
The band were formed back in 1986 and led by Tim “Too Slim” Langford on vocals and lead guitar. The band has had a few members, but currently includes Robert Kearnes on bass and Jeffrey “Shakey” Fowlkes on drums. They are currently based out of Nashville, Tennessee and sometimes the Music City influence comes through. Their first album Swingin’ In The Underworld from 1988 however had a more commercial sound to it than their latest effort.
The track, and indeed the album as a whole are what I would call quintessential blues-rock, the type that you wouldn’t think twice to tap your toe to in a bar over a game of pool – the sort that sounds familiar. The album sounds far removed from their early work, but what can we expect 11-12 albums later? After all “Too Slim” Langford has no doubt seen his fair share of band mates and good times. Anyhow – this is well worth a listen, you will need some blues-rock after yesterday’s gospel diversion. Let us know your thoughts of Too Slim & The Taildragger’s latest effort in the comments below.
