Get Hip Recordings (GH-1109)

Long awaited and highly anticipated, the new album by Oxford, Mississippi's Preacher's Kids is finally here--and, it’s about zero bones short of classic, baby!

The Preacher’s Kids recorded this three-guitar battering ram with Bruce Watson (producer of T-Model Ford, R.L. Burnside, and others) at the Money Shot, out in the wilds of Water Valley, Mississippi. The sounds ex-Neckbone guitarist Tyler Keith and his band of fierce rock n’ roll acolytes laid down out there in the sticks are jaw-droppingly awesome.

Primal, raw, and unaffected, Wild Emotions is plugs into some brilliant psychic wall-socket in which the band’s influences--including the Flamin’ Groovies, Real Kids, New York Dolls, Mott the Hoople, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chocolate Watchband, the Sonics, the Faces, and a gazillion other punk, garage, Merseybeat, and psych bands--all effortlessly combine into one gleaming, white-hot silver rail of pristine electric rock n’ roll heat. It’s feverish, and it’s cool.

Keith’s songs are righteous and true and achingly alive, and the band's blast-furnace version of “Summertime” by Boston punk legends Unnatural Axe is just as incredible. Here is a testament to the power of the beat! Here is the once and forevermore rock n' roll beat; writ large, played loud, cut hot, and lived tough. If this record doesn’t get you up on your feet or down in a bottle again, then mister, you’d just better go back to those Dan Fogelberg records in the back of your closet, ‘cause it just ain’t gonna happen for you. Can you dig it?!
