EXTREME DEATH STOMP BLUES
Please see pictured above the latest cassette tape from death blues duo Leavenworth – The Killing Floor. On this release, Elvis Johnson mans the drums and charts their course, while Cactus tantalizes and bludgeons the ear with extreme guitar. First, gentle listener, your presence is requested on the disco death dance floor. Lurch on over. Cut a rug. Strut your stuff. Then you’d better batten down the hatches when the second track “Red Harvest” howls through.
