Blacktop - I've Got a Baaad Feelin' About This - 2003


Blacktop was the first post-Gories project for Mick Collins. While similar to the legendary garage punk three-piece, Blacktop is a clear progression, in terms of musicianship and songwriting skill, for Collins and is also the beginning of his movement towards noisier material. The band's sound was fuller and more sophisticated, due in no small part to the addition of a bass line and the songwriting input of Darin Lin Wood (Fireworks, '68 Comeback) and Alex Cuervo. While still drawing from a wealth of blues, soul, and mod influences, Blacktop crossed into seemingly new territory, even going so far as to cover Captain Beefheart's "Here I Am, I Always Am."-AMG
