Voodoo Rhythm Records, a label I consider the best on the planet, has released a split CD/LP. (I hope I get a copy of this one.) Mama Rosin Together With Hipbone Slim and the Kneetremblers. Both bands are seriously freakin' good. Cajun meets garage rockabilly. If that release sucks I'll cut off a finger. I just don't see it happening. In fact, I can't think of the last time something came out on Voodoo that I didn't like. Nope.
Both bands have released great records before. Both bands are highly capable of getting asses out of their seats. Together? Oh, that is the sweet spot.
There was other exciting news in the e-mail I got, but seeing this release kind of made everything else just fade into the background. It isn't every day when you hear of such incredible news. This was that day.
