“Noise-rock royalty moves to Kingston”

“Attempting to encapsulate Boss Hog’s style, Jonathan Ringen of The New York Times last year came up with, “Mr. Spencer and his various collaborators channeled rockabilly ghosts and punk weirdness into a crackling electric riff-heavy sound.” When it comes to description, I favor a Wikipedia riff of the band’s 1995 debut on a major label: “The sleazy glam-punk sound of abrasive buzzsaw guitar and part-sneering, part-shouted vocals continued largely unabated,” the reviewer writes. “Fans and critics ate it up like pancakes on Christmas morning.” Also worthy of mention is reviewer David Sprague’s pithy evaluation of Boss Hog as evolving from a conceptual exercise in art-rock carnality into a legit, earthy dirt-blues band.”
