Alabama Thunderpussy - Constellation

  | CD

Alabama Thunderpussy-Constellation Even cowpunks get the blues. Two-thirds of the way through 'Constellation', Alabama Thunderpussy start to ease off the gas pedal that they've been pumping solidliy for the past 30 minutes and wind down the windows in order to air the Southern-fried balladry of '15 minute drive'.
It's not exactly a welcome relief, but it does give you time to catch your breath.
'Constellation is the sort of album that Lynyrd Synyrd could have made, Corrosion Of Conformity should have made and James Hetfield only dream about making !'
An extended forefinger to the face of fashion, it's a 50-minute long Yeehaw! of a record, complete with moonshine guitars, whisky-soaked vocals and even the strategically deployed cowbell for good measure.
But this isn't just hairy palmed neanderthal boogie. No siree. This is hairy palmed neanderthal boogie with a dose of class Just listen to the way the thunderous rumble that is '1/4 Mile' suddenly explodes into a starburst of down-home piano , or sit back and take in the flecks of space-rock dusted over the closing jam 'Country Song'.
Better still, ATP possess the kind of punk rock edge that most of their refer-toting peers would die for. It's in everything Johnny Throckmorten's vulpine bellow to the way they stagger manfully from 'Six Shooter' to 'Second Wave' to 'Obsari', denting cars and pissing against lamp-posts along the way.
Monster Magnet may be slicker and Unida may be classier, but truckstop rock doesn't come any finer than this.
