    The Muggs
    Straight Up Boogaloo
    Release date: 3/21/2015


    The Muggs have returned with their 4th studio LP, Straight Up Boogaloo. On this killer new release, the band takes their signature sound in a new direction. Their versatility as great songwriters is evident as they tap into new musical territory yet continue to blow the roof off of the bar with their style of bluesy rock-n-roll!
    The album kicks off with the classic Muggs riffage of “Applecart Blues,” keeping the rock momentum on a steady course. After a pit stop in “Fat City,” Side A is rounded out by the one-two punch of the rockers “Lightning Cries” and “Spit and Gristle.” Side B kicks off with the sci-fi fueled “Roger Over And Out,” an opus inspired by the films of the one and only Roger Corman (see if you can list all the Corman films that get a nod in this jam!). The dark and dirty “Blues For Mephistopheles” worms its way into your ears before driving on into the next offering, a cover of the Black Sabbath Vol. 4 classic “Tomorrow’s Dream.” Closing out the record is the title track, a mid-tempo ballad that feels like the soundtrack of a small bar somewhere along a desolate, dusty highway road.

    The Muggs are releasing two bonus tracks(CD/Download only): A 12 minute version of the epic "Rattlesnake Shake" by the Peter Green era of Fleetwood Mac & a spirited version "Yer Blues" by the Beatles by way of the Rolling Stones DVD, "Rock n' Roll Circus" featuring The Dirty Mac.

lyrics

My Type of blues drones on and on
I think the solo should service the song
Jimmy Reed is all to blame
Brownie Mcghee and Sonny the same

*I love the Kings/ Oh Lord they send me
B.B., Freddie and the Pres.
My type of blues flows on and on
May it stay that way

Yeah I’m kingbee/ You got to move
You can’s arrest me/ For playing this groove
But when you left me/ A dozen times
Drown in my blue moonshine

I’d rather sip on the gasoline
From the tank of a stretch limousine
Not much a fan of those modern blues
Gimme the Hook, the Wolf and some booze

*Yeah I love the Kings/ Oh Lord they send me
B.B., Freddie and the Pres.
My type of blues flows on and on
May it stay that way

From Bessie Smith to Mavis Staples
St. Louis Blues by W.C.
But when you left me/ A dozen times
Baby please don’t go

Some will say it all sounds the same
But not to me/ I’ll carry the flame
I’m just a Midwest boy at heart
But gimme a stage/ I’ll tear it apart

* I love the Kings/ Oh Lord they send me
B.B., Freddie and the Pres.
My type of blues rolls on and on
I hope it stays that way
I’m gonna miss you too
The Straight Up Boogaloo
It’s a Straight Up Boogaloo!
