Gonna Get a Fifth 'o Liquo' and a Snicka' Baaaar.

The Morning 40 Federation - Bottom Shelf Blues - WHEN THOU WAKETH UP IN THE MORNING, BEFORE THOU BRUSHETH THY TEETH, BEFORE YOU TAKE A LEEK, BEFORE YOU LOOK IN THE MIRROR, GO DIRECTLY TO THE CORNER STORE AND SOME HOW OBTAIN A 40 OZ. OF MALT LIQUOR. IF YOU HAVE NO MONEY YOU WILL HAVE TO ASK THOU NEIGHBOR. - this is the manifesto of the Morning 40 Federation - a motley crew of New Orleans transplants joined not by a love of music by Debauchery - myth would have it that, when the band formed, they didn't know how to play their various instruments. In the ensuing years, the Federation have become local legends, known for a raucous live show (New Yorkers! Catch them tonite at L'asso at 10:30 PM!), and their unique brand of "Sleazy Burlesque", a sound that can only be described as 100 % New Orleans. Filter the swagger of Reverend Horton Heat, the psychosis of Tom Waits, the brashness of John Spencer and the moodiness of Morphine through a strainer of bayou blues and cheap malt liquor, and you might be somewhere close to describing the bands sound. Most of the time. "Bottom Shelf Blues" is all gravelly vocals and bkaring honkytonk guitars and keys, with a saxophone wobbling drunkenly through the whole affair, and when the song goes into those cleaned up vocal breaks, everything makes sense. "We'll all spend every last dime" indeed.

The Morning 40 Federation - Gotta Nickle - Gotta Nickle has to be the weirdest song on the Federations debut full length though. It opens with a hard driving bass stomp, before blowing through a distorted take on the classic "Tequila!" The vocals, screamed through a megaphone, are so washed out by feedback as to be incomprehensible. The guitars whine at the high end of their amps capabilities. And then, out of nowhere, the horns disappear, and the song falls apart. The vocals clarify, and we enter this weird electro-bridge that sounds like the southern hedonist cousins of the current New York art rock scene before everything goes noisy again and the whole thing charges out all punk rock stylee.

[Buy Morning 40 Federation from Amazon.com]

As a final note, I'll be at Coolfer's little Music Blogger get together tomorrow evening. You should drop by and say hi. I'll be the guy in the cabbie hat with tons of pins on the back of it.
