The Stoney Curtis Band (ahem) “rocks”. Named after a cartoon character from the animated series The Flintstones, this L.A.-based psychedelic blues rock power trio has been touring internationally for almost a decade. The band roster includes: Stoney Curtis (guitar and vocals), Aaron Haggerty (drums) and Steve Evans (bass).
Their newest Shrapnel Records release, Stoney Curtis Band Live, is a live CD/DVD combination on which they try to capture the excitement of their live shows. (Actually only the first 1000 discs include the DVD.) The album opens on the thumping “Last Train to Chicago”. The song takes off just like a runaway locomotive complete with a Freudian reference to trains and tunnels.
