RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Last Bullet - 80-69-64 - Album Cover

I think the Canadians have a penchant for the South. Same as the Germans do, just check out The New Roses.

It really looks that way.

And who can blame them? Would you want to stay in the cold North when sun-drenched highways, whiskey galore, bikes, dusty bars, and hot chicks beckon you? Well, whilst most stay put, they at least portray this Southern Rock feeling through their tune. RockmusicRaider already covered bands like the folks from Vinyl Hero or others screaming about the soundscape in the best Mad Max fashion. Albeit not from this genre.

RockmusicRaider Review - Smokey Fingers - Promised Land - Album CoverSometimes it does the soul good to be transported to yonder laid back times of Easy Rider (the film), Doc Hollyday, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Creedence Clearwater Revival and the likes. Just makes you want to put on your cowboy boots, hunt for these tight jeans, don a Stetson, and go a-cruisin’.
