As eclectic and original as their name, singer/songwriter/guitarist Tom “The Suit” Forst, singer/ bassist Tyree “Ty” Pope and singer/percussionist Pedro “ Bigg Thurrsty” Johnson come busting out of the Northeast with a heady mix of rock, blues, funk, soul and hip hop. They proudly and powerfully proclaim their love and mastery of a range of musical styles often combined with cutting social commentary on their knockout new release.

Eleven original numbers also feature Mike Forst (keyboards), Kim Burgle (trumpet), James P. Mullen (sax) and Gez Forst, Zayahna Johnson and Gary Youell (backing vocals). On the heavy grooving R&B of “I’m Never Gonna Leave You” Johnson sings the startling “I’m never gonna leave you, no matter what you do. You’re never gonna get away, I got a hold on you. Till death do us part, don’t make me prove it to you” as Forst rips off staggering, bluesy, jazzy solos. The grinding, funky “Diamonds” has Johnson warning “Would you trust your diamonds with a thief? So why would you give something away like your heart?” The clanging, rocking, hip hop title track has Johnson and Pope accusing “Debt limit stalemate, socialistic Watergate, Tea Party Madness, Somalia sadness, liberal spenders, bank thieves in suspenders, Wall Street tip-offs, main street rip-offs” in a blistering bi-partisan indictment. “Same Old Song” is a raunchy, low down boogie blues with Forst hurling the personal indictment “You’re stuck in that same old position, you can’t seem to change your mind. You say you’re using your woman’s intuition, you think you see I know your mind” as he strangles his strings.

The hot riffing shuffle “Darkest Before Dawn” finds Forst intoning the haunting lyrics “I own the darkness when I’m alone, I own the darkness when you’re gone. It won’t be long, darkest just before the dawn,” his guitar barking fat, overdriven lines. Poking good-natured fun at contemporary blues lyrics, “I Got the Blues” runs down the middle class reasons not to have the blues. Pope and Johnson duet heated rap vocals on the pop/hip hop/gospel/field holler mash up “You Make Me Real” containing cool references to Marcus Sam, Leon Spinks and Lebron (James) in conjunction with ambiguously dark backing. In direct contrast, “Drawers” flirts with heavy metal, Forst boasting the licentious “One day, I’d surely like to be the drawers on your behind” and “One day, you’d surely like to be the little drawers on my behind” while soloing lustily.

The brooding, minor key ballad “Mama (What’s a Man?)” starts with “’Mama, what’s a man,’ asks Lil Afro, is it when a boy can?” and ends with the response “A man can be anything, because a man can think” as Pope recalls James Brown when he “preached” about personal responsibility. The dramatic and dynamic heavy rap/rock of “I’m Already Against the Next War” has all three singers furiously driving home “You say we fight for freedom, but we know that it’s for oil…You built this ugly war machine, that always needs to be fed.” On a roll, Pope warns “… Be careful what you wish for baby, because you just might regret it. Don’t let your eyes be bigger than your stomach, baby. I see your future, and I dread it” on the searing rap/funk/ blues, “I See Your Future”, intensified by Forst’s scalding solo. A reprise of “Same Old Song” utilizing a different, funky dance groove closes the set.

The musical dynamo of Forst, Pope and Johnson plumb uncommon territory with emotional depth rare in contemporary music, no matter the genres. Their passion remains in the heart long after they have rocked the house down.
