Watch out! MOUNT SHASTA is back to put the BOOM in your box! Produced by Steve "Debbie" Albini at Electrical Audio, this album sports so many hit's you'll be bruised all over!
Chicago's Mount Shasta take the blues of Leadbelly, the rock of the Stooges, the soul of James Brown, the tomfoolery of Tom Waits and the volume of twin jet engines, mash 'em together and spit out Bo-Didley on Cough Syrup. The drums are plodding and powerful, the guitars cringe, cut and splay, like BIG cats, the bass slinks beneath, delivering high heeled belly kicks at any vulnerable instant, and John sounds like he's just come down from something and is about to let loose.
"Watch Out" is a bop, a jam, a hip shaker - one helluva a set of tunes! One small step for man, you've reached Planet Dumbass.
