Frenchie’s Blues Destroyers (from the album Love is Blood available as a self-release)
Dues have been paid by Frenchie as the guitarist made he way west from Nimes, France, landing in Los Angeles with a guitar, a backpack and two hundred dollars answering six-string want ads before landing a band gig with Shooter Jennings. As Frenchie’s Blues Destroyers, the guitarist takes center stage, a role that was a new skin, Frenchie recalling that ‘I’ve always been a guitar player for hire, this was my trade. So to sing the songs I wrote is a big thrill. But in the beginning it was a little scary’. Love is Blood, the recent Frenchie’s Blues Destroyers release, plays host to Frenchie’s songs, backing the tracks with raw guitar and drums (“Get Through to You”), wandering lead guitar lines cruising late night streets of rhythm (“Can’t Stand Missing You”) and tangles Blues licks, packing them in a traveling beat that is “Bound for OKC” as the album sings a song for “Juju Boo Bunny” on a frenzy of percussion.
Frenchie’s Blues Destroyers is a guitar/drum duo, Frenchie’s guitar and voice joined by Brother Pete. A bandmate in backing Jack Ingram, Brother Pete was the push Frenchie needed to land him center stage. Love is Blood crackles with energy, the pair pummeling Blues Rock into form that they wind around “Beautiful Mess”, brushing a out a rhythmic resume for “Little Bit Crazy” while Love is Blood taps out a pace in click-clack percussion for the title track and rips down the highway on a Country romp in “Behind the Wheel”.
