Left Lane Cruiser Gets Ready to “Eat”


blooze-punk miscreants serve up a heapin’ helpin’ o’ fun.


By Blurt Staff


Coming to a BLURT review near
you: Fort Wayne, Indiana’s Left Lane Cruiser, whose new album
is All You Can Eat Alive Records. The
two-man band features Freddie J Evans IV (aka Joe) on slide guitar and vocals, and
Brenn Beck (aka Sausage Paw) on big-ass bass drum, harmonica and a toolbox full
of percussive gear. Evans provides the firey fingerpicking and husky vocals.
For Beck, everything is an instrument: trash cans, washboards, paint trays,
hubcaps, ladders, you name it.


Learning their craft by playing
at house parties, at the corner streets of their home town, and rehearsing in a
heatless garage, they have developed their personal take on the North
Mississippi Hill Country sound. They have toured relentlessly, sharing the
stage with artists such as Black Diamond Heavies, T-Model Ford, and Bob Log
III. They have also appeared at the infamous Deep Blues festival in River Falls Wisconsin
in 2007, 2008 and 2009.


All You Can Eat is the latest release from the super blues duo. It
showcases the band’s high-voltage punk blues style they’re known for and it is
everything fans of their Alive debut expects and a lot more. A follow up to
their acclaimed 2008 release “Bring ‘Yo Ass To the Table,” this new
album was recorded in Detroit
at the infamous Ghetto Recorders, and produced by legendary Jim Diamond.


Watch for the review very soon.
The band is hitting the road in October too, so you have been warned:
