Whitey Houston – Whitey Houston

*I Wanna Taranna Pt. 42: She Said Boom! #9, $1 Deal #7: Whitey Houston – Whitey Houston

’Twas James who introduced me to Whitey Houston, though I don’t think I have ever owned the CD proper until now. I should have. This thing fuckin’ smokes!

I love garage rock, the louder, messier and the more unapologetic the better. This Edmonton duo’s album has it all in spades. It’s absolutely relentless and, for a two piece (Lyle Bell on bass, Gravy on drums) they make one helluva huge noise. It’s song after song after song of bashing you in the skull with huge fuzzed out bass and pounding drums. It’s like White Stripes did speed, went punk and only ever listened to the Hives, Motörhead and Nashville Pussy. I LOVED IT! 

The song you’d know is I Got Fucked By Liberty Mutual. It’s a harrowing, cautionary tale. Righteous that they put it into song! But there are a ton of other great ones here, too. I could name one or two, but then I’d have to name them all. Just get this and crank it. Go go GO!  

It also amuses me to no end that the Whitey Houston album listed on carries all of the comments for Whitney Houston’s debut album with it. That’s two pretty disparate albums, I’d say… The band must love it.


*Announcement: This brings an end to this current I Wanna Taranna series. If you’ve read any of these posts, I thank you heartily! This Taranna trip was highly successful, I feel. I got great deals, great music, and I can’t wait to go back! In fact, I’ll be there in a couple of weeks, for the \m/  SLAYER!!!!  \m/ show, with dedicated record shopping time the following day (if we can see straight, that is). Thanks for Reading this series! Give ‘er!
