The 10 Best Country & Roots Songs From BREAKING BAD : Left Lane Cruiser “Waynedale” – Season 3, Episode 8.

This album (Rock Them Back To Hell!) rocks full on, this album rocks in a swampy down tempo, this album will rock you sweetly, this album will rock you gently. Left Lane Cruiser takes the collected knowledge that human kind has accumulated on blues, garage rock, punky garage and bluesy garage and compresses it into a dark matter that they then double barrel shotgun blast into your head. Stand out tracks are all of them. Please join the church of Left Lane Crusier. – Green Bay Scene

Rock Them Back To Hell has basically startled me with how good it is. Highlights of the album are…everything…especially Juice To Get Loose (check out some of that Indiana beer that is mentioned), Paralyze Ya, and Electrify. It’s a class act and is most definitely going to rank high on the year end list that is quickly filling as we head into the final quarter of the year. File under: Not To Be Missed. – The Ripple Effect
————————-

Their new album Rock Them Back To Hell delivers dangerous raucous rock with a mix of steel belt machinery and southern hard liquor. This power duo demolishes the rules and grabs you by the throat and shakes you until you submit. Hailing from Fort Wayne, Indiana Left Lane Cruiser brings the heavy sound of middle America and stripped-down jams that are as tough and sharp as a midwest pool hustler’s gaze. – Rustzine
————————-

Known as Left Lane Cruiser, the duo of Freddy J IV and Brenn Beck defines its music as “voodoo hillbilly punk-blues”. Whatever that might be exactly, it’s actually a pretty apt description of the combination of thrashy, scuzzed-out guitar and trashy, bashed-up rhythms on Left Lane Cruiser’s latest outing, Rock Them Back to Hell. The new album is as resourceful as it is energetic, especially making an impression with found-sound percussion supplied by paint cans and trash cans. Wrap it all up in cover art by William Stout, known for his work for Return of the Living Dead and Pan’s Labyrinth, and the over-the-top tone and feel of Rock Them Back to Hell is more than complete. – Popmatters (Premiere)
————————-

Approaches things with a frenzied roar that makes paint curl and shake its ass. From the first track, "Zombie Blocked," clear through to the last, "Righteous," Evans sings like he’s gargling cigarette butts and ashes on the midnight train to nowhere, while Beck pounds out rhythms that could make cement crack. This is what Left Lane Cruiser do, stomping across the sonic landscape like they want to shear off every blade of grass. – All Music (4 star)
————————-

There’s good slow blues here, too – "Coley" is one where they dial it back a bit, and it’s got some pretty acoustic work. But the guitar playing on tracks like "Jukebox" and "Paralyze Ya" is incendiary, and there’s no way you won’t test the max volume of your speakers while listening to this album. It’s not a headphone album, it’s a "loud in the car" or "disturb the neighbors" kind of album. – WYMA
————————-

Freddy J IV’s squalling vocals and Brenn Beck’s "trash" drum kit (it really is made of trash) create an unearthly sound that’s simultaneously sublime in it’s perfection and unholy in its blistering sensuality. – Adobe And Teardrops
————————-

An authentic and inspiring updating of the blues-rock idiom for the 21st century. – Gutter Candy / Blogcritics
————————-

"Giving Tree" is the lowest of low down groove, a dirty diamond of rough, aching, swirling James Leg keys back-dropped by muted and fuzzed slide shimmer guitar. A voice, still growled in pure soul underneath, wounded and in love, lost and rambled, fighting through the sonic din. It’s a stunner of a song, and nothing like we’ve heard before by these cats. A revelation. – Big Rock Candy Mountain
————————-

Junkyard Speed Ball is an unholy union of country, blues, punk, and rock at the mercy of a duo that share a musical connection that culminates into one Hell of a record. – The Soda Shop
————————-

With Junkyard Speed Ball, the blues is in perfectly unsafe hands. – Michael Toland / Sleazegrinder
————————-

This duo is helping lead the way for the blues rock counter-cultural movement. – Georgetown Fats / Boston Blues Society
————————-

Hard rock meets boogie-woogie southern blues. That is the best way to describe Left Lane Cruiser and their magnificent disc Junkyard Speedball. – Rock & Roll Guru

Left Lane Cruiser’s musical growth and expansion, conjoined with a Hi-er-Fi’d production, and a hard thoughtful attack bring all elements together to cause the stars to align and explode all over Junkyard Speed Ball. – Deep Blues
————————-

A pitch perfect definition of what I love about the Deep Blues scene and it’s tattooed kids putting their own punk skin on the Mississippi Delta. – Nine Bullets
————————-

The duo’s manic turkey-on-meth-in-the-straw M.O. has been replaced in spots by down-low blues that can only be described as a tad more gutshot than their typical fare. Glad to report that this gamble pays off in spades, thanks at least in part to the personage and organ stroking skillz of Reverend James Leg of the Black Diamond Heavies. – MOKB
————————-

They hail from Fort Wayne, Indiana, play gonzoid stoner Blues-Rock at ear-splitting volume and clearly don’t give a flying one what anyone else thinks. Such is the bedrock upon which a lot of great Roc’n'Roll is built and there is indeed some great Rock’n'Roll on Junkyard Speed Ball. – Tim Peacock / Whisperin and Hollerin
————————-

Lots of slide guitar, plenty of rural subject matter, countryside grit and grime. These guys rock, to put it in a cliché neater and nicer than anything you’ll hear on this album. – Farce The Music
————————-

Left Lane Cruiser is in its prime. – James G. Carlson / No Depression
————————-

For anyone who hasn’t heard the duo’s potent, electric-slide–driven shtick, just think on R.L. Burnside, T-Model Ford, and Jon Spencer – if you can remember how you felt while vibrating to any of them, you have a good read on Left Lane Cruiser. – Mary Leary / Dagger
————————-

A sonic post-punk punch to the bread-basket with a touch of early George Thorogood / Sixties Chicago blues and slewing slide playing thrown in for good measure. – Graham Reid / Elsewhere
————————-

Demonstrates that there’s still plenty of life left in the drummer-guitar format pioneered by Mojo Nixon and Skid Roper all those years ago. – Jeff Napier / Nuvo Weekly
————————-

Their fourth album and the third with Alive Records, does not disappoint. It is rough, gritty, fast, and as hysterically funny as it is sad and bluesy (kinda like life). – Lynda Lippin / Blogcritics
————————-

A powerful album, one that replaces clarity with the sheer joy of impassioned noise. – Steve Leggett / All Music Guide

Written In Music review (Netherlands) | Nayatidreams (FR) | Raw Power Mag (FR)

From the greasy slide-guitar-and-drum-pummeling intro to opener “Crackalacka”, you either jump in and let Left Lane Cruiser take you on a hell-raising hayride or plain get out of the way because Freddy J. Evans IV (guitar/vocals) and Brenn “Sausage Paw” Beck (drummer/“trash”/vocals), a powerhouse duo out of Fort Wayne, Indiana, are roots-music revolutionaries who take no prisoners on their second outing for Alive Records. Following 2008’s Bring Yo’ Ass to the Table, All You Can Eat assimilates the Mississippi Delta blues laid down by guys like Big Joe Williams and Son House and cultivates it into a country punk ‘n’ blues speedball. “Hillgrass Bluebilly” is a frenetic juke-joint stomper that finds Freddy J IV hollerin’ out a reference to the Who’s “Squeeze Box”. “Ol’ Fashioned” is a country-picking blues flashback with washboard, while the primal trio of “Black Lung”, “Broke Ass Blues”, and “Putain!” finds the boys strutting through stoner-blues country with bravado. It doesn’t get a lot better than this. – Alan Brown / PopMatters
————————-

They take elements of some of the most basic but timeless forms of American music and make it their own. I’m not big on the New Age Country and Hellbilly movement but I have my ears open. – Stereokiller
————————-

All You Can Eat!! is old fashioned music without the slick production that I, for one, have grown so used to — and quite bored with. It reminds me of live Cramps, RL Burnside, and even old Henry Rollins. If CBGBs was still open that would be the venue I could see Left Lane Cruiser playing. Amid the dirt, the history, and the gritty smoky fog. – Lynda Lippin / Blogcritics
————————-

I dare you to try and listen to these guys and not immediately want to stay up all night slamming shots of Old Crow. – Indieshuffle
————————-

It’s a rumbling tinnitus-inducing musical vertigo of swampy Mississippi-style ghetto electric blues that’s greasy, grimy, gritty, and basically un-fucking-real. – Can You See The Sunset?
————————-

Left Lane Cruiser is called a lot of different things. Most say it’s a blues band, but they are also a hard rock band with a lot of Southern fried attitude. They are their own category. Call them Industrial Redneck, or Country Thrash. – Al Kaufman / Atlanta Music Guide
————————-

Live in London review : The low end overdriven guitars, growling vocals, blood, sweat and a belly full of primal blues is the Left Lane Cruiser mix and damn, it’s good. – Blues In London
————————-

Left Lane Cruiser are like Tyson, and with All You Can Eat, their second album with Alive Records, they’re throwing haymakers from the opening track “Crackalacka” and their power is showing no signs of waning some 9 tracks later as they close with “Waynedale”. – Nine Bullets
————————-

Five New Songs We Love: September 23, 2009 – Blender
————————-

A two-man groop, Left Lane Cruiser kicks up a howling fuzz of dirt road holler, a hard-scrabble blues-punk blast. – Big Rock Candy Mountain
————————-

Left Lane Cruiser is the real deal. They are blues at its best, filth at its finest, with just two men who are evoking enough inner demons to populate an entire circle of hell. – Andrew Bryant / Disc Exchange
————————-

They mean it, man. – Tim Hinely / Blurt
————————-

All You Can Eat is another taut 35-minute blast of raw garage blues built upon the gigantic riffs of guitarist/shouter Freddy J IV, and the equally towering swagger of drummer Brenn "Sausage Paw" Beck. – Jason Schneider / Exclaim
————————-

The band blends styles that wouldn’t normally be compatible, but when the two musicians come together — Evans with his slide guitar and vocals that sound as if his diet consists of swallowing sandpaper and chewing gravel, and Beck with his collection of hubcaps, trash cans, ladders and whatever garage accessory you can drum a beat on — the result is hard, rusty blues that Beck guarantees will get you moving. – Katie Saltz / Kentucky Kernel
————————-

This is not something for the faint hearted. Rest assured this is more than you can eat! – Will Bray / Blues In London
————————-

This is good, this is very good, certainly not the putting in of a twenty and the taking out of a forty here, the good is there in these Broke Ass Blues. – Organ Magazine
————————-

All You Can Eat is loaded with sleazy, raw, heavy North Mississippi blues. – FuryRocks
————————-

AWESOME isn’t a big enough word to describe this band. – Neus Subjex
————————-

They didn’t change a thing and they don’t have to because this two-man band sounds like there’s four of them anyway and their songwriting skills are top-notch. – Punk Rock Theory
————————

This is very much what you’d expect from a band that thanks Jim Beam and Pabst Blue Ribbon for “keeping us feelin’ good.” – Hyperbolium
————————

The songs are perfectly adequate for LLC’s purpose, which is to rock every room like it’s a deep South juke joint (despite the duo being from Fort Wayne, Indiana). – Michael Toland / Sleazegrinder
————————

The 10 songs on All You Can Eat will leave your jaw on the floor and your eardrums bruised. – Jason Hoffman / Whatzup
————————

They recorded at Ghetto Recorders, in Detroit, with Jim Diamond. Diamond, aside from being the bass player for The Dirtbombs (one of my personal favorites), also recorded The White Stripes’ first two albums. Needless to say, the fact that Diamond produced All You Can Eat is a bit of a big deal. – Read Left Lane Cruiser ‘s interview with the Fort Wayne Reader

CoreAndCo review (France) | PaperBlog (France) | Rock Times (France) |
————————-

Think of Bring Yo’ Ass To The Table as the soundtrack for a ballroom brawl-an electrified six-string sex pantry filled with mojo, empty whiskey bottles and rusty needles drippin’ with 40W motor oil. – Doctor Mooney’s 115th Dream
——————–

Left Lane Cruiser plays North Mississippi style blues like a lot of blues bands do these days, they just play it louder and harsher than anyone else, and that includes the North Mississippi AllStars. – Pico / Blogcritics
——————–

Since LLC is a two-piece, the thick sound of their 2008 Alive Records set, “Bring Yo’ Ass to the Table,” is particularly eyebrow raising. – interview with Metromix Greenville
——————–

One of them there lo-fi slide guitar street corner broken string wooden box for a drum two piece greased up whisky drenched hobo blues bands outfits. R.L Burnside, Seasick Steve, trash cans, hub caps, meth smoking two dollar pawn shop mics and all sounding as cool as that all sounds – sound, pass me that square bottle with the number seven on it while I go put this sucker on line. – Organ
——————–

A thoroughly unique journey down a well-traveled road; best now to sit yo’ ass down a spell and listen to this stunning album. – Jo-Ann Greene / All Music Guide
——————–

Place Muddy Waters, AC/DC, The Black Keys and ZZTop in a blender and hit frappe, the resulting sound might come close to the music Left Lane Cruiser grinds out on stage. – Review Magazine
——————–

The music is all rock’n’roll. And when played with such conviction as Left Lane Cruiser displays, it doesn’t get much better. – Jason Schneider / Exclaim
——————–

This is high-quality music from a group who practiced in a heatless garage in Indiana, and whose philosophy in music is "Let your soul drive what you do". Pretty good philosophy, if I say so myself. – Adam Dorobiala / Slug
——————–

This shit is greasy, gritty, grimy, and un-fucking-real. I mean, the sweat just drips off this this record thick like motor oil. Left Lane Cruiser is the real deal folks so tap yer toes, stomp yer feet, nod yer head, or do whatever it is you do and go get a copy of Bring Yo’ Ass To The Table. – Can You see the Sunset?
——————–

This is a must add to the Essential Listening list and currently my favorite cd of this young year. – Nine Bullets
——————–

Left Lane Cruiser’s high-voltage blues sound is downright nasty. Blistering electric slide guitar and leering vocals distill old-school Mississippi blues down to its rowdiest essence. This band has some major mojo. – Casual Listening
——————–

Left Lane Cruiser has successfully revamped the reason why classic blues and country music are the footprints of many other genres today. – Phil Lee / DecentXposure
——————–

LLC is the reason your CD player has an 11 on the volume knob. – Reax Magazine FL
——————–

LLC won’t seduce you with poetic lyrics, but they’ll start you off with a whiskey on the rocks to warm you up on the intro track. – Hear Ya
——————–

Left Lane Cruiser is sliding that ragged old mixture of steel, rust and rubber through the mud. – Ronny Dijksterhuis / Up (Netherlands)
——————–

LLC is another two-piece gritty, raw, dirty blues outfit but the depth of sound they bring is unreal. – Herohill
——————–

Bring Yo’ Ass To The Table is the kind of music that could care less about whether ties are straight or thin this year, and in doing so defines its own coolness. – Salisbury Journal
——————–

They make ferocious, whiskey-fueled music that is just right for driving a pickup truck 70mph down a narrow dirt road, with the cops in high pursuit. – Covert Curiosity
——————–

The lo-fi, hard punk-blues sound is raw, gritty and often ferocious, thanks to singer Joe Evans’ aggressive slide guitar and Brenn Beck’s minimalist percussion. – Startribune
