I Wanna Taranna Pt. 35: She Said Boom! #2: Boss Hog – Boss Hog
Man, I owned this ass-kicker of an album back when we lived in Montreal. I honestly thought I still had my copy at the house, but consulting my list said I didn’t, so I snagged it again because I don’t ever intend to be without it again.
Being married to Jon Spencer has gotta have an affect on a lady (The blues is #1! Damn!), as much as she has an affect on him, and this album by Cristina Martinez, Spencer, Jens Jurgensen and Hollis Queens is just dripping with all the elements I love so dearly about this sort of sound. It swaggers, it’s sexy, it’s dirty, it’s funky, it’s rough. Every track is designed to piss off your neighbours as you yell along and play wicked air guitar, pretending you could be even an eighth of the cool these people exude.
Honestly, by the time these 15 tracks (14 originals and a cover of Ike Turner’s I Idolize You) are done, you have truly been ridden hard and put down wet and all you wanna do is go around again. And again!
