Progression and development? Pah! Did anyone ever tell Howlin' Wolf or Muddy Waters that their music needed to change with the times? Of course not, they found what they were good at and stuck firmly to it. 'The Last Men On Earth' is Five Horse Johnson's fourth album and sees them in a similar position, and not just because of Eric Oblander's whiskey drenched vocals either. Their heavy blues boogie is pure as ever, the lyrics are as usual concerned with drinking, (as the sleeve notes say "Oh yeah, after all these years, getting' bombed is still a blast!") and the comparisons to the early years of a little ol' Texan band ZZ Top keep cropping up, but fronted by Captain Beefheart with Little Walter on harmonica.
Some bands exist to challenge you, some to shock you, and some to inspire you. Five Horse Johnson make you glad to be alive.
