The Blacklight Bros.
Ditches to Doorways
Independent Though there may only be two Blacklight Bros., this band makes a lot of interesting and varied music with the help of guest musicians. I love the opening song “Chango Baby.” Veteran drummer Joe Fazzio provides a sexy drum beat with jangly old-sounding keyboard and eerie vocals and barroom jazz trumpet by guest artist Lacy Allen Blackledge. “Just One Thing” follows the tone of the first, but with 1960s style guitars by guitarist/vocalist Casey Saba (think Venus, but darker), and a chorus of vocals at parts, and an amazing guitar solo by the talented guitarist Robert Fortune. “Dream, Dream No More” and “Not Long for This World” are less intense, but still great pieces. The great cover art by Chuck Wright also deserves mention. Ditches to Doorways is an all-around pleaser, and a different sound than you’ll find around the city.
