Album review: Raging Slab, Raging Slab (1989)

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN THE GEORGIA STRAIGHT, OCT. 20, 1989

By Steve Newton

Guns N’ Roses meets Lynyrd Skynyrd in a southern-fried riff-fest that bodes well for this thundering new act from Atlanta.

Singer-songwriter Gregory Strzempka crafts catchy, good ol’ boy tunes that are nicely lit up by the leads of Mark Middleton and bottleneck attack of Elyse Steinman.

“Bent for Silver” and “Get Off My Jollies” are rugged southern-rock tunes in the best Molly Hatchet tradition.

Play loud.
