Hue Blanc's Joyless Ones: Fait Accompli LP
— Price: 149 SEK

This Wisconsin based four-piece consists of members of STRONG COME ONS, THE TEARS, THE KNOCKERS and BLUE BALLS.
With two twangy guitars, two drums, a drunk romantic heart and a love for cheap booze poetry, these guys create a groovy and noisy, yet wonderful sounding kind of garage blues that throws in some sloppy 60s riffs and also shows a preference for early New Zealand bands like THE CHILLS or THE CLEAN.
Melodic and slower tunes like "The Modern Lover`s Lament" or "I Forgot My Dancing Shoes" sound like if they have been written by JACK OBLIVIAN, complete with a saxophone or a cello here and there. Then again, the two openers "Notoriety" and "Black Ghevina" will please every fan of the BLACK LIPS and more fucked up ones, like "Time Machine", remind a lot of the DEMONS CLAWS. Perfect soundtrack to get drunk and stoned to.
The classy old-style artwork is printed on the rougher side of the jacket and the record comes with a nice lyric sheet.
Watch out! HBJO will also be on Vol.2 of the KILLED BY TRASH compilation series, covering "Hydrohead" by THE EJECTORS.
