Gideon Smith & The Dixie Damned - "South Side of the Moon"
(Small Stone Records 2008, SS-079)
From Aural Innovations #40 (September 2008)
I had never heard of this guy but damn, I totally dig the sound, the vibe and voice. These guys are not all that prolific but they lay down some cool shit here. Some of it is hard edged MC5 meets Lynryrd Skynryd type stuff and other slower, more stoner groove stuff infused with some blues. What more can I say, check the mutha's out. It rocks! It is a great and different CD.
