GA-20 (from the album Live in Loveland available on Karma Chief Records/Colemine Records) (by Bryant Liggett)
GA-20 needed to drop a live record to showcase what a great stage band they are. Fans know the vintage tones of their studio output, but Live in Loveland is that sound on steroids in a live setting. A perfect way to experience the gritty goodness of GA-20. A Blues band yes, but this is no sit down, Clapton-style Blues. GA-20 is a Garage Rock band operating from a Blues base, and this live record shows their unpolished, Punky and Soulful groove.
That overabundance of sweet Soul music is all over cuts like “My Baby’s Sweeter”, “Dry Run”, and “Just Because” where the band shows they can score a slow dance with old-school R&B.
GA-20 is also a band that knows how to rock. “Lonely Soul” has a go-go, rowdy lounge, Twist-beat, “Hold it One More Time” is Boogie Blues, and “By My Lonesome” is a swinging Rock number. If you’ve ever questioned Rock’n’Roll’s birth from the Blues you only need to hear this record to understand that lineage. Live in Loveland is the way to experience this trio, from Tim Carman’s minimalist but driving drumming to Matt Stubb’s smoking psychedelic guitar and Pat Faherty’s aggressive croon, this bass-less trio does a lot with a little while also connecting the dots between Blues and Garage Rock.
