Isle of "Blues" Man
It is funny when you read reviews from other music critics. They all seem to use deep expressions as if they're monks soulfully searching for the right quote. In the case of the rock'n'roll blues trio, Back Door Slam, all the philosophical reviews seem to substantially work for them. They have been noted to sound like Jimi Hendrix, and yet, when you hear them it is as if you are lounging in a blues bar in the '20's. As cliché as it sounds, the three 21-years-old from the Isle of Man who compile Back Door Slam were born with blues in their blood.
Their album Roll Away is like a perfectly blended Bloody Mary—Not too much tabasco and just the right amount of vodka. One of their tracks "Heavy on My Mind," has a zest of Albert King as they sing about staying in their managers creepy house; then the ballad "Stay," is about the death of Back Door Slam's rhythm guitarist, Brian Garvey who died in a car crash in 2004.
