Left Lane Cruiser and 20 Watt Tombstone's 'Death Blues vs. The Dirty Spliff'

In 2016, two powerhouse bands, Left Lane Cruiser and 20 Watt Tombstone, joined forces to create the remarkable album 'Death Blues vs. The Dirty Spliff.' For fans of both groups, this collaboration is an absolute must-listen. The album features a total of six tracks, with the first trio—'Laid to the Bone,' 'Slow Grind,' and 'Special Delivery'—showcasing the unmistakable signature style of Left Lane Cruiser.

20 Watt Tombstone

20 Watt Tombstone steps up to the plate with their own contributions: 'Your Man's a Jerk,' 'Lair of the Swamp Witch,' and 'Whiskey in my Brain.' Each track on this album is a true gem, offering a tantalizing blend of both bands' exceptional talents. It's a sonic feast that will leave enthusiasts like myself craving more of their gritty, blues-infused sound.

Rock 'n' Roll Fusion

This record is a thrilling journey, seamlessly fusing lo-fi stoner rock and blues into a captivating whirlwind of thunderous fuzz and distortion. It's akin to savoring a hearty rock 'n' roll stew, thick as molasses, and it engulfs you with a raw, unbridled energy that's irresistibly compelling. Hailing from Wausau, Wisconsin, 20 Watt Tombstone emerges as the vanguards of death blues, melding influences from ZZ Top, Kyuss, Robert Johnson, and Black Flag into an awe-inspiring sonic tapestry.

Left Lane Cruiser

Meanwhile, Left Lane Cruiser, fronted by the inimitable singer/guitarist Freddy J IV, is the embodiment of authenticity when it comes to blues rock. With over a decade of living and breathing the blues, they bring their freewheeling improvisations to audiences across the globe. This album stands as a testament to their divine musical synergy—a match made in heaven
