Red River Revival
It's hard to convey the power of a live show through a CD, but Street Light Suzie pulls it off with seemingly no effort. Their debut album, "Red River Revival" is a raucous jaunt through everything that makes Rock-N-Roll fun. Vocalist Wiley Ross, bassist Ben Evans and drummer Chuy Trevino team up to make music that hooks the listener from the start. Bluesy and harsh, it's almost as if they all camped out at the "crossroad" and drank Satan under the table. This band could have started the "sex, drugs and rock and roll" cliché, had they been born earlier. Ross' voice is like an old razor blade: rusty but sharp, and very likely infectious. From the opening track, "Long Live the Dead", Street Light Suzie assaults the listener with thunderous melodies. It's hard not to respect a band that pulls off songs with titles such as: "Cannibal Farm", "Bag of Bones" and "Flirtin & Squirtin", to name but a few. This is a great road trip CD... just put it in and drive. Better yet, crank it up at the river or beach, just to let the commercial radio listening public know that you are cooler than them. All in all, to paraphrase a well-worn song: "It's only Rock-N-Roll, but you'll like it!" -Karsten Kroos * Edge Magazine- 'Their brand of rock and roll harkens back to the days of '60's garage rock, '70's burgeoning metal scene, '80's hard rock, and '90's grunge in a way you haven't experienced yet. ' - Austin Berzerker Magazine DNA testing will prove Shooter Jennings the hard rock to Waylon Jennings' rolling baritone, but better test Wiley Ross just in case. Snarling out front of this Red River trio his indestructible whiskey grit begins with the cocaine binge of 'D song' and pauses not a single red second over the metallic bar-clearing of 'Cannibal Farm' and desperation in 'Mary Mayhem.' The Reverend Horton Heat road burn on 'Diurea'obliterates Mary's memory along with the piano hung closer 'Jody'. -The Austin Chronicle- 'Street light Suzie brings back dirty rock 'n roll and they do it well. ' - Whoopsy Magazine.
