Boss Hog

"Self-titled" CD (DGC)

Driving and pulsing rock courtesy of Jon Spencer with a whole lotta the Explosion. This time around though, Cristina's in-your-face screaming is the mustard on the hot dog that sounds similar but spicier and grittier than Spencer's Blues Explosion or previous albums by Boss Hog. Personally I enjoy what Cristina can do while actually singing over her raucous vocal ravings. When I think Boss Hog, I think crunchy, sordid blues of James Brown or Ike Turner fame. I want to hear a Motown cover. I feel good, I knew that I would now. (ALEX)
