Crack Sabbath - Bar Slut
I hope y'all are in the mood for Crack tonight! This rockin' group has a cult following of sorts in it's homebase of Seattle, but has managed to stir interest among a small group of people elsewhere due to the wonders of live recording, internet downloading, and mail trading of live shows.

Bar Slut is the first studio release by the group consisting of Skerik (sax), Keith Lowe (bass), Ron Weinstein (hammond b3), Mike Stone (drums), and Brad Mowen (vocals). Equal parts jazz, funk, and ghoulishly hard rock makes for a devilish brew of musical delight. Aside from original numbers, the band is also known for it's great covers. A typical live show of theirs includes a cover of the Nirvana song "Breed" as well as a closing tribute to Black Sabbath with a wicked rendition of "War Pigs". While the album doesn't include "War Pigs", "Breed" is present along with covers of songs written by Charles Mingus, James Brown, Neil Hefti, Chester Thompson, and Miles Davis.
