Look up the definition of “liner notes” the next time you’re stuck spinning your wheels and you’ll find at least one anonymous offering which opines that: “Liner notes were an occasion for thoughtful signed essays on the artist by another party, often a sympathetic journalist; a custom that has largely died out.”
Now what with me being a rock critic and all, I wouldn’t know a “sympathetic journalist” if one crawled in wearing a sign. What I do know, however, is that the aforementioned dearly departed era of rock ’n’ roll liner notes lasted a scant decade between 1954 and 1964. Sure, these days any half-witted hack can crank out a few pithy paragraphs for a multi-disc box set retrospective or a meager one-shot reissue, but the sad reality remains that there hasn’t been a single solitary memorable new-fangled liner note of note written for the past fifty years.
There’s also something else that rock ’n’ roll records had a surfeit of back then: FUN. And if ever there was a modern vintage-sounder that’s chock-a-block full of unbridled audiophonic frivolity which richly deserves to have liner notes notating its virtues, that album is the 24th Street Wailers’ Wicked.
Whether you wanna call it “blues ’n’ billy” or “juke ’n’ jive,” I say let’s crank the whole thing up because this is the kind of high-octane supersonic tonic that amplified energy was meant for. Which explains why it was recorded in Texas, where they happen to know a few things about how to expertly apply electricity. And just like the album title promises, you’re gonna need asbestos mitts to handle the steady stream of boosted juice coming your way because Wicked is constantly kept revved up into the red by the unflagging powerhouse of Emily Burgess on guitar; Michael Archer on bass; and Jonathan Wong on sax.
But what really makes this modified merry go-round such a hot-wired delight is the sensational singing of Lindsay Beaver who, in addition to keeping the beat reet on the traps, has a vibrant voice that easily evokes the uncanny octave-spanning of Grace Slick via the feverish black coffee midnite musings of Peggy Lee.
And while Lindsay’s busy slamming it down into overdrive, the lay down the law firm of Wong Burgess & Archer swings and swaggers with a primo percolating verve and swerve not heard since houserocker Jimmy Cavallo and upsetter Little Richard ripped it up by rewriting the rules on how to have a good time. But don’t take my word for it when you’ve got this butane baker’s dozen worth of tracks to listen to, all of which’ll have you bouncing off the walls with such unbridled stucco-slamming gusto that you’ll never want the action to end.
The song titles say it all, from “Chin Wagger” and “Shake It!” to “Aw Baby” and “Aim To Please,” so stop reading and start spinning because the 24th Street Wailers’ hipper than hep happening Wicked isn’t just one helluva hard rocking remedy that’s good for what ails ya: it’s a stripped-down customized cure-all that’s guaranteed to perk up the proceedings whenever you need a sure fire lease breaker to ignite your next rollicking rent party. Impressive, I know.
