If you are in the mood for some good old fashioned rock and roll with some blues thrown in, then Taildragger might be up your alley. Hailing from Kentucky, these Southern boys make an impressive CD with *gasp* 17 groovy tracks.
It should be noted that Taildragger is not for everyone. If you are in the 16-28 age range, chances are you will not like this album. It takes an older audience, with a broad taste in music to appreciate the authenticity of this band.
Throughout the CD, the band evokes just about every sound. In "Had it Comin" the first few chords seem reminiscent of Red Hot Chili Peppers with a vintage touch. Funky "Disfunkshun Junkshun" earns its unique title as the groovy bass lines keep steady throughout the entire song. "Honey Hole" is one of those crossover songs, a tune that could just as easily be played on a country station or an alternative rock station.
If you long for the old days of rock and roll and think the current music kids are listening to these days is crap, then Taildragger is for you. Youngins need not apply.
