Porch Ghouls

Bluff City Ruckus


Roman/Columbia (CK 87033)

Produced by Greg Cartwright and the Porch Ghouls

Executive producer: Joe Perry

Debut (and apparently only) long player from this Florida/Memphis outfit, garage blues and back-porch electric Memphis stomp, letting the Tennessee hillbilly come through without sounding like rockabilly.  Unlike their previous EP of mostly covers, all these songs are credited to band members.

It’s not a great album, just a good one, noteworthy 21st Century garage, produced by Greg Cartwright (Oblivions, Reigning Sound), released on Joe Perry’s Roman label . (The Aerosmith / Reigning Sound connection!)
