Can You Deal With It?
This is some heavy punk-soul, brothers and sisters. Andre\'s in firm voice, from his sly, come-hither leer on \"Hear Ya Dance\" to his guttural and guttery yowl on \"Never Had A Problem\", to the downright TUFF throw down on \"If You Leave Me.\" The Hellhounds, with their fat horns, fuzzed out guitars and crack rhythm section, provide backing with all the subtlety of a bike chain beatdown. Add to the mix the Ninth Ward mad scientist virtuoso oddball genius Quintron on organ and this band lays down a serious base coat of soulful wallop befitting the legacy of Andre. You have been duly warned, oh seekers of the rock, that this record has more grind in it than a 3 am cup of diner coffee.
For those of you who might not be as hip to Andre Williams as you should, here\'s a quick primer. \"Mr. Rhythm\" (a nickname given to him by none other than Redd Foxx) is a R&B legend and you may not even know it. He wrote \"Shake A Tail Feather,\" and wrote and sang such ur-raunch classics as \"Bacon Fat\" (covered by the Cramps), \"Greasy Chicken,\" and the epitome of cautionary tales about little girls, \"Jail Bait.\" He worked at Motown and Fortune and with Ike Turner. Yeah, baby.
And now he\'s back for another round with this fine addition to his canon of carnal coolness. He\'s here to tell it like it is. With a nod, a wink, a chuckle, and a rousing HELL YEAH! \'Dre and New Orleans. Two fighters. Yes, we can deal with that.
