I have one I think it's called "the big come up" something like that. It's cool I liked stripped back music and they get their funk goin' on.

Seem like really cool dudes too I seen a thing on TV and they went guitar shopping here in Australia and tried out all this stuff like all day had a whole guitar shop to themselves (old stuff not like a lame guitar centre) then they were like "Ah everything's too expensive here in Aus" and just left without buying anything. Haha

Seem like my kinda guys, apparently it's their favourite thing to do. Just go guitar shopping.

i think there's a thread on these guys already buy whatever. yeah i have all their albums, but definately get chulahoma, it this tribute to junior kimbrough, and their interpretations are so good. I'm gonna have to go listen to that right now actually.

yeah, I love this band. I've been listening to a lot of their stuff lately. I like their style, since I'm a fan of blues and indie rock, and they fuse the genres perfectly. They got so many cool riffs.

My favorite album is "Thickfreakness". The title track is one of my favorite songs.
