Electric Slave

TOUR: Black Joe Lewis

Black Joe is Texan, Black Joe is a riot, Black Joe will reduce you all to electric slaves with this new ferocious set of smoking songs, but…the first ones to give Black Joe any credit, publishing his first two albums, were the guys at Italian label “Shake Yo Ass Records”, so let me share with you a little nationalistic pride, just for a moment…alright!
This is a world where, every time someone dares achieving a little success showing nuances of unadulterated spirit, all is reduced to a product to copy and reproduce grand-scale; Black Joe Lewis, fortunately, is still a joyous exception to the rule, still maintaining his own identity and primal rawness. 
Exuberant, that’s the first word coming to mind to describe the electric turmoil agitating the dark waters where Joe, with his crew of soulful mariners, sails the waves of the most exhilarating funk, commanding the sea foams of vicious garage rock with the blues authority of a veteran.
