Well, look at the cover,it is what it is= homemade, and it
looks like an old 78 rpm record. It's actually a CD, and this
band make records that sound like old records, but they do a
better job of it than anyone else can.
So if you like old blues songs, but not tired old blues songs,
than this will be a cool trip for you! Lucky you! This CD came out,
and then it disappeared. It was probably because whenever they
played live, they caused quite a cool disturbance,and sold all of their
junk at the shows! They even made these nifty homemade sew
on patches that were nothing but old denim cloth with
a lousey silkscreen on it. Talk about Do It Yourself?!
They really did it with style...But that's not really about the music.
But it seemed like everything the band did, they did it this way.
All homemade,and everything had a real "I made this myself" kind
of touch to it. I rather like that very very much. Cause it sounds honest.
And I'll tell you there's hardly any honesty to music nowadays...
and I think I'm gonna cry.
Anyways, Doo Rag were very very unique, and like nothing else.
There's nothing to compare them to,so you can just download this
and just shut the fuck up.
Just two guys stripped down music like, playing what looked
like home made instruments that resembled a very old vacuum cleaner.
The one guy on the left, Thermos Malling played a 5 gallon plastic
bucket. The guy on the right Bob Log played a really old steel guitar
occasionally. Plus his foot was tied to a few other instruments
(or was I seeing things) It was kinda dark in there.
This is way before The White Stripes kids, this record came out
in 1994, and I'll bet you a million jillion bucks that The White Stripes
heard this record,and formed a band right after hearing this.
I don't blame them. I would too.
I got nothing against The White Stripes, okay! I just LOVE hearing
REAL REAL ROCK AND ROLL with some balls, in the Top 40 Charts,
so they should really start putting out some records pretty soon,
or I'll go nuts. Doo Rag is from Tucson,Arizona, and they can come to
my house and eat up all of my food any time they like.
