Geezer: Handmade Heavy Blues [Self-Release]


Handmade Heavy Blues sets its stall out early: austerely nostalgic, crunching guitar-and-drums-in-a-rundown-bar blues-rock. The resurgence of “the blues” in recent years has made it difficult for up-and-coming bands to be taken seriously, however, there’s an authenticity about Geezer that instantly puts them above their peers; the whiskey-soaked growl of Pat Harrington will take you down the Midwestern delta once more, while Harrington’s heartfelt, gut-level grooves are reminiscent of ZZ Top circa 1973.
