THE JUKE JOINT PIMPS
BOOGIE THE HOUSE DOWN
Talk about authentic, the birth of rock n roll in the 21st century.
The popular belief is that Elvis Presley wandered into Sun Records in 1954, laid down ‘That’s Alright Mama’ and Rock N Roll was born. The truth is that ‘Rock N Roll (street slang for fucking) had been bashed out since the early 40s by a myriad of artists playing up-tempo jumping blues, filthy lyrics, a stomping beat and even filthier distorted electric guitars being the omnipresent features. What we have with The Juke Joint Pimps is a stunningly authentic take on those days of proto Rock n Roll. This could be seamlessly played alongside a collection from the vaults. Everyone seems to be doing ‘roots’ this month, but none better than these guys.
