Spirit Caravan - "Jug Fulla Sun"
(Tolotta Records 1999, CD)
From Aural Innovations #11 (July 2000)
This trio from Maryland plays a heavy Black Sabbath style including the vocals of what sounds like 'ol Ozzy himself. Pure headbanging music in a mostly stoner style, but with great rhythms and guitar riffs. The band consists of Wino on guitars, Dave Sherman on bass and vocals, and Gary Isom on drums and vocals.
I guess my favorite song on the CD is "Kill Ugly Naked", with its great moshing headbanging style. I was also impressed with "Power Time", "Dead Love/Jug Fulla Sun", and "Sea Legs". They even show their tatoos of the sun, circle of chaos (in snakes), and skull. Overall, these guys rock hard. A must-have for stoner/Black Sabbath fans. I hope to have the chance to see them in concert in the future.
