The Immortal Lee County Killers - These Bones Will Rise to Love You Again Review
by Kevin Wierzbicki
These guys seem to have inherited the spirit of Marc Bolan. The band doesn't sound like T-Rex, but they share the same passion for acid-drenched music and enigmatic lyrics like those from "Turn on the Panther;" "And the night shines like chrome/and we pray for home/now now now is time time time/turn on the panther." The band also is firmly rooted in the blues, both old style ("Boom Boom") and Zeppelinesque ("Blues," "Airliner"). And for a cover song, the guys groove on a Pussy Galore song written by Jon Spencer, "Revolution Summer." "Stitched in Sin" is a slow acoustic number that showcases vocal harmonies from lead singer Chetley Weise and his cohorts, drummer Toko the Drifter and bassist Jeff Goodwin. Although slightly countrified, the song would easily fit into Spiritualized's repertoire. The disc ends on a gospel note with "No More My Lord;" Weise singing a cappella while Toko bangs an axe handle for a primitive rhythm. Most of the 11 songs here barely clock in at over two minutes and the longest is just short of twice that length. That makes the album seem to be over too quickly, but every song is well performed and comes to its natural conclusion. So you'll just have to settle for many, many replays.
