A Thousand Knives of Fire - "The Last train to Scornsville"
(Small Stone Records SS-078)
From Aural Innovations #40 (September 2008)
What can I say, I dig this CD. It has such a cool vibe and some great songs. The band really mixes it all up well. Instrumental freakout stuff (Hold your Nose), Doomy stuff (Yeah Part 2), riff rock with harmonica solo (Last Train to Scornsville), etc. The band is lead by Lee Stuart (Halfway to Gone). He writes all the songs, sings and plays the guitar. He is backed up by a solid band including Bob Pantella from Monster Magnet (it was recorded in his studio, I believe). Anyway, a great debut CD with a lot of variety and a number of ass kickin' tracks.
