Dude kicks ass… you got a problem with that?

The best part about operating a music website is the possibility of randomly discovering greatness. Here’s an example: Iron Mike Norton, who we literally came upon in our email inbox about a half hour ago. With an extra 30 seconds to spare before having to go start the grill (it’s a Sunday evening, after all..), we wuz knocked out. Bluesy swamp stomp, indeed: this muhfuh is the real deal. So please check him out; his new album Bloody Knuckles is the culmination of a long period of growth and maturation, and extant comparisons to blues legends Hound Dog Taylor and R.L. Burnside are definitely not offbase. Ragged, raw slide-guit mayhem never sounded so sweeter.
