TK # 64 - Ike Reilly - Salesmen And Racists (2001)
Matching the sneer of prime Dylan with the swagger of early Replacements, Ike Reilly plums the seedy underbelly of the urban Midwest. He spits out tales of lovable losers – these are the stories you share with drunken, jackass pals when you’re way past your limit. Salesmen And Racists is jam packed with instantly memorable choruses wrapped around biting, funny and often touching lyrics that inspire and bewilder. “Hip Hop Thighs # 17” is the greatest song you’ve never heard.
