CHARLIE WHEELER BAND – BLUES KARMA AND THE KITCHEN SINK
“Charlie has obviously listened to a lot of Hendrix. You can hear it strongly in the lurching guitar work, tempo, and melody of ‘Choir Of 1000 Angels’ and the riff and general approach and feel of ‘Flicker Away’, the soul tinged rock of ‘Love You The Same’ and the guitar work of the closing ‘Butterfly’..That’s certainly no bad thing in my book, and Charlie certainly does not overdo it. Indeed, when it is coupled with other tracks such as the spacious and memorable ‘Shiver’ and the straight ahead Americana tinged rock of ‘One Of These Days’, the resulting album is a real, no-nonsense winner. This blues-rocking trio is out of northern Pennsylvania and Charlie writes some good songs – try the coolly rocking ‘Never Can Tell’ or the indie-flavoured funk of ‘Love Gets In The Way’ – making this CD well worth the effort involved in tracking it down.”
