    Sunday Jul 17 | Music-News.com

    There are literally thousands of British Blues players out there and the vast majority are poor copyists of the classic styles - I've lost track of the number of SRV stylists, Muddy Waters wannabees and John Lee Hooker boogiemen. So when you come across a British artist who has his own voice - not even an attempt at an 'American' accent - and who writes songs that are relevant and modern with the feel of the classics then you have to laud them to the hills.

    Last week my house was served a 90-day, no-cause eviction notice, meaning I'm one more Portlander who has been fucked by the city's cabal of evil landlords or whatever. There are a handful of great songs about getting evicted/having your rent raised-the Dead Kennedys' "Let's Lynch The Landlord," John Lee Hooker's "House Rent Boogie"-but none as poignant and nuanced as Genesis' "Get 'Em Out By Friday."
