Rockin' Song of the Week - Number 33

Hot Boogie Chillun -Chillun Walk
As the bands name suggests there's a strong John Lee Hooker influence here. The hypnotic groove that JLH made his own is given the impetus of a strong rockabilly vocal, clicking bass and some dirty sax. The band came from German and in the late 90' s were the cult band on the rocking scene, with their singles constantly blasting out to throbbing dance floors across Europe. More Roy Gaines than Roy Orbison, Hot Boogie Chillun aren't for the faint hearted. Chillun Walk is a low-down mean stroller that builds to a crescendo of wailing guitars, vocals and a touch of heavily amplified harmonica. A barnstormer.
Recommended downloads: Desperado Love, Dirty Robber and Hey, Girl.
