Back in 2000, Buddy Lush Phenomenon's guitarist J. Paul told the Pitch, "You play less, and you really enjoy it a hell of a lot more." If that's the case, Paul should have a ball at this gig, because his group has vanished from local club calendars. But unlike, say, weekly swing nights, this gritty trio can return from its hiatus at any time without losing its appeal. BLP's self-titled full-length from 2000 ranks among the region's most timeless releases. Opening with "Filthy Truckstop," a bouncy romp that accelerates like a speed-wired driver about to miss deadline, the disc shuffles through fifteen sharp slices of country-fried rockabilly.
