scream my name

tonight after my DJ gig I am going to see some great midwestern garage rawk. Cincinasty's Thee Shams have it goin' on!

"Thee Shams' particular M.O. is organ-and-harp heavy garage with a fatback streak of swamp R&B; it's the Stax-meets-Sun-meets-Chess raunch that Jon Spencer has been aiming for (and consistently missing) since he shut down Pussy Galore."

Every track rocks mercilessly. It's like getting punched in the face by the playground bully and then the girl next door, as you regain consciousness, rewards you with your first French kiss.
