# 8 (TM) - Deer Tick - Divine Providence

Divine Providence is the album where Deer Tick kick off their dusty boots and put on their high heel sneakers and claim the boozy, freewheeling throne The Replacements abdicated two decades ago. Lead Tick John McCauley seems hell bent on rock and roll destruction, and on the caveman-like stomp of the "The Bump" (a too dumb to live, too smart to die update of "We're An American Band") and the Westerbergian "Main Street", he bleeds and carouses enough for all of us.
