I gotta admit that I liked The Rolling Stones at halftime of the Superbowl. I thought that despite their age they were as energetic as any band I could think to book, their songs stand up and even with the self-censorship issue I thought they tore it up. Needless to say then I’m excited by any of the bands that are bashing out songs using the Stones bluesy, fuck-you attitude and formulaic sound. Besides the fabulous Deadstring Brothers from Detroit, I think NYC’s The Izzy’s come closest to capturing the eternally youthful and confrontational sound of early Stones (and thus early blues inflected rock n roll).
Here’s a song of their self released debut. They also have a 7″ out now on Kanine Records.
