Album Notes
Lightnin’ Woodcock is downtown Los Angeles’ semi-legendary filthy punk rock bluesman, a bad man who exhibits unusual prowess on guitar, and growls some of the most perverted blues you’ll ever hear. Lightnin’ claims to have sold his soul in exchange for the ability to perform musical miracles, such as playing Jimi Hendrix with his hand bound in an oven mitt. Woodcock’s band & The Bad Muthafuckers provide an often-aggressive backdrop for his bluesy narrative, telling salacious tales of sex, drugs, voodoo and having the blues in DTLA… and how to beat the blues.

Rock 'n' Roll Explosion

Lightnin' Woodcock: Ride the Lightnin'
This album is probably one of the most memorable debut albums of the past five years. Which he and his band have been around around the same amount of time. Drugs and sex are a few of the various topics that go into Lightnins' lyrics. They are also very comical in a sense. It also seems he fuses blues, hard rock, punk, and metal into his songs without making it sound shitty. He is probably one of the better bluesmen that hasn't gone down in history. (yet) I have to say my favorites would be "Fingerbangin'," an awesome instrumental, "Smoochie Coochie Man," to me the centerpiece of the album, and "Have a Drink," a rockin' cover of the AC/DC track. This album makes me excited to hear what's coming next! I would seriously recommend buying this album A.S.A.P.
