dan sartain wisely chose liam watson's toerag studio to record his new album - 'dan sartain lives'. dan's rumbling, voo doo shaking rockabilly suits toerag's special line in reverb heavy retrorama, resulting in his best lp to date. stand out tracks are 'bohemian grove' - a stomping garage rock tune with perfect fuzz and cynicism, and 'ruby carol' with heavy slapping on the double bass and heavy twang on the guitar. it sounds like link wray rumbling with johnny horton, with the oblivians standing round them in a circle shouting 'fight fight!' while hp lovecraft films the proceedings on a super 8.
