ALBUM REVIEW: Papa Pilko & The Binrats ~ Till The End Of The Road

ptw scorebw8papa_pilko_and_the_binrats_till_the_end_of_the_road_0815Papa Pilko & The Binrats come charging out of the gate with ‘On Your Own’ and lay down a rip-roaring swampy blues-funk testimonial that sets the scene for the rest of their debut album. Tried and true influences are at play but the way the band combines them is a winning formula. John Lee Hooker, Tom Waits, C.W. Stoneking, New Orleans soul, voodoo funk and gothic country course through the ten songs while singer Cyrus Pilko channels fire and brimstone culminating in a glorious scream on ‘All I See’ that sends the needle into the red and highlights the importance of raw passion on this exceptional debut.
