The Strange Boys
When Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Brian Jones first partnered up in the early ’60s, they rallied around their abiding love of authentic Chicago Blues, a love that inspired them to name their band after a Muddy Waters song and record their own sessions at the legendary Chess studios. Austin’s Strange Boys don’t have that kind of historical lineage, but they sure as hell play vintage Garage Blues and R&B as if they do. Raw, feral, immediate and visceral, The Strange Boys aren’t doing anything groundbreaking, but give them half a chance and they’ll kick your Garage loving ass up between your well abused ears.
