ROBBIE FULKS & LINDA GAIL LEWIS
WILD WILD WILD
Wild! Wild! Wild!, the new collaboration between Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Robbie Fulks and rock-and-roll royalty Linda Gail Lewis, gleefully lives up to its title. It’s Americana music that’s as butt-shakin’ as Beale Street, deep-rooted as the Grand Ole Opry, and hip as a trip to The Strip. Subversive as it is reverential, the album jumps the genre tracks of nitty-gritty rock-and-roll, country-and-western, rockabilly, jump swing, and gospel, landing in a strange slice of spacetime—call it 1954—when all these were One (and Linda was 7). Robbie Fulks, the record’s producer, is “one of the most observant and wry songwriters of the past two decades” (Rolling Stone). Ground-zero Louisiana-born rocker Linda Gail Lewis is the younger sister and frequent performing partner of Jerry Lee Lewis, whose piano innovations she carries forward. Her present-at-the-creation cred buoys the record while Robbie—who sings, plays, leads the band, writes most of the songs, and arranges the others—provides an anchoring sensibility, one that savors old sounds but sidesteps nostalgia. Recorded at Alex Hall's (JD McPherson, Pokey LaFarge, Cactus Blossoms, etc...) Hi-Style studio, and features Flat Five / NRBQ, etc members Scott Ligon & Casey McDonough on many songs, as well as FF's Kelly Hogan, and Tele-whacker Redd Volkaert on many others. Their two talents have fashioned a record that’s urgent, honest, and fun.
