John Evans – Lollygaggin’

500x500OK, so this isn’t a new record, but it’s one of my daughter’s favorites and I love it too so I thought it would be worth mentioning. If you’re looking for a new one from John Evans, you’ll have to wait ’til May.

John Evans’ original life goal was to play in the NFL. Thankfully for us music fans, that didn’t work out. This record is full of raw Texas country rock that, to use Evans’ own words is like crossing “a ’57 Chevy with a hillbilly band”. It lands somewhere between rockabilly and mild psychobilly with crooner-style vocals. If you like The Stray Cats, you’d like this record.
