American Bandages (re-issue)


No Video


re-issue with bonus tracks. Now playing: American Band-ages by Nash the Slash (that one-man band from Canada)...

His voice is more powerful than ever. (He was nominated for a Juno Award for his vocals.) And - wo! A sudden harmonica assault! He must be super live...

What a twisted guy this Nash is... All wrapped up in bandages and doing a whole album of very slick, dark-side cover-songs... Born to be Wild, Hey Joe, Psychotic Reaction (I love the Letters to Jodie bit in that), 1984 (The old Spirit song), The American Bandstand Theme... This guy has a weird sense of rock-humor and a heck of a dynamic way of expressing it. He sure can belt out some wailin' and stompin' rock'n'roll on his electric violin and his death's-head mandolin. This certainly gives the (guitar-part) solos a chilling timbre...

For all it's rock'n'roll flash, the music is still alive with chittering oddities and sneaky synthi-shorts. The up-front drum programs put a commanding final touch to it all. Expertly crafted gut-gripping stuff... Quite an impressively hot LP...
