We listened to a promo of Dave Cloud & Gospel Of Power's 'Napoleon Of
Temperance' a bit ago I could have sworn it was the longest album I'd ever heard
and that was only the first disc. This guy is a bit of a genius if you ask me.
He reminds me a lot of Captain Beefheat in places and Wesley Willis in others.
There is something really naive about the lyrics. 'Puff Rider' is just amazing,
like if you gave a 6 year old a bottle of Bourbon. 'Lavender Clothes' comes
across like an even dirtier MC5. Lo-fi blues and off the wall music delivered with the kind of conviction that's rare these days. Recommended on the
ever cool Fire Records.
