TK # 83 - Ike Reilly - Hard Luck Stories (2009)
Ike Reilly returns with ten Hard Luck Stories about sex, drugs, returning vets, fucked up losers, fucked up winners, sex and drugs. Drawing on Dylan's deep, twisted phrasing and the feral gut punch of prime punk rock, Reilly is a master storyteller who's bringing back two things sadly missing in rock and roll - humor and swagger. The dude is a fist fight wrapped up in a three minute explosion of rock and roll, complete with pulsing, soaring chouses that imbed themsleves deep. If we did this roundup six months from now, this would place much higher.
