Heavy Harmonies Review
From: Dan Date: March 16, 2003 at 4:50
Well, this one is about as raw as they come. Depending on your tastes, that may be a good thing or a bad thing. Rough, gritty southern bar rock. I'll be honest, I don't care for it. Too coarse for my tastes. Then again, I've never claimed to be the world's greatest expert on southern rock, and in fact, that genre tends to be less polished and more rough-and-tumble than what I usually listen to. Chigger Red reminds me of a more primitive version of George Thoroughgood. I get the impression that this would be a fun band to see live, where one is more cought up in the fun of the moment than critiquing a studio sound. Who knows, after a few shots of Jack Daniels and Bud chasers I'd probably be into them more than anyone.

The fact remains, however, that their studio work needs a bit of help. The lead vocalist doesn't sing all that well, and his tendency to sing off-pitch just cuts through me like a knife. The instrumentation is sparse; then again, it's a 3-piece band, so a certain amount of that is to be expected. Die-hard fans of good 'ole southern hard rock will probably enjoy it. I'm afraid I cannot.

Rating: 60/100

I was so surprised at your review of this CD entitled "HAMMERED" This CD ROCKS! You compared them to a primitive version of George Thoroughgood? Not even close. More Molly Hachet, guess you are right to say "You don't know your Southern Rock Bands!" CHIGGER RED straight Up Southern Rock at its finest..

this band has been kicking around l.a. for many years.i recently was the drum tech for a band that opend for them at...a strip club turned music club on thursdays in north hollywood.can't go wrong there. anyway,i gotta say,they were seriously loud,but i was impressed.as a drummer,i was disapointed with their drummer.but its really a vehicle for the 2 brothers anyway.solid and machined skill drove the band thru the set.haven't heard the cd,but if you can see them live-do it.

Well now...for me, CHIGGER RED brings to mind the band you stumble across late at night (or early in the morning), playing at your favorite bar while the bartender pours you the remaining drops of the last bottle of Patron tequila. They've got more of an edge than straight blues bands, yet they don't lose that raw and raunchy blues attitude either. Sometimes, I hear a Bon Scott era AC/DC laden with attitude and atmosphere and then there's the ZZ TOP meets BLACK CROWES sound at times......Fans of the aforementioned will find something to like on "Hammered." Fans of JACKYL and other Southern bands like MOLLY HATCHET won't be disappointed either. I guess it all depends on how many scotch and bourbons or Patron tequila you've had, eh Dan?
