ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Naked & Shameless Peel Sessions!?! Yes. Except they weren't recorded in London. Or by John Peel. Or by any-body at the BBC. However, this here session was recorded in the style of a Peel session, live-off-the-floor, the way it really happened, capturing the essence of the music and the spirit of the artists in action. It may have been Chicago. Buck and Dave may have had Emma rather than John Peel on their minds. But the result is a pure slice of Naked & Shameless, documented as a frozen moment in time. The energy. The PBR. The drool. Contains 3 originals and 3 live favorites.

Our kind of music
It's no secret that the hard livin' rabble-rousers here at BluesBunny have somewhat of a soft spot for low-brow rock 'n' roll filth. You can imagine how this 'Bunny felt when the cow-punk brouhaha of Chicago-based duo Naked & Shameless came hurtling out of the CD player. This EP is raw as they come, and all the better for it. Mojo would be proud!

The chaos begins on "Pumpin' 4 the Man". Anyone who has faced the tedium and monotony of slaving away for an unforgiving boss will immediately relate to this profanity-laced version Ween song. "Nice Legs (Shame about the Face)" borrows English hooligan chanting and pairs it with a rough rockabilly edge to exorcise the ghost of a one hit wonder. Believe it or not, it works. However well Naked & Shameless manage their cover songs, there's no questioning their ability at writing witty, catchy songs. "Bill Monroe (Country Legend") is a prime example. Reeling off their country star fantasies to the sound of frantic cow-punk, you're almost wary of the possibility of a bar room brawl breaking out in the vicinity. A well-executed, countrified rendition of the Misfits classic "Where Eagles Dare" leads on to the sexual-dominance themed "Blood Elegy (The Pain of Love)" which is enjoyable in all its stupidity.

Think of a half-assed, perverted incarnation of The Replacements with even worse production, and you're halfway there.

Naked & Shameless stress the need for this EP to be cranked full-blast, and they're right. It doesn't work at half mast. The sorry truth is that this band's success is unlikely to extend beyond their local live circuit. This should take nothing from the inarguable brilliance of this EP.

No Future
Goofy and kitschy, this plan on the legendary John Peel Sessions does reel one in, although the band admit to having never met the recording legend... Still, this tongue-in-cheek cow punk is as hilarious as it is bouncy and cunning. Covers of the Monk's (Bad Habits Monks, that is) "Nice Legs (Shame About The Face), Misfits' "Where Eagles Dare", and Ween's "Pumpin' 4 The Man" are amusing takes packed with twang. Originals such as "Bill Monroe (County Legend)" and "Two Sides (To Every Girl") reach into almost G.G. Allin territory at times, with their attempts at gutter humour, but if this aspect is appreciated once then promptly overlooked, the thumping progressions and upbeat delivery are quite enjoyable.
