Deep Blues Festival 2008 – Black Eyed Snakes, Duluth MN
“The Snakes are Blues-based, punk-infused and influenced by the 80s noise scene.” excerpt from myspace page.
“The Black-eyed Snakes are a right-thinking music fan’s nightmare. They’re white guys from Duluth playing rubbed-raw blues. And they cover a Moby song that itself sampled a blues artist (“Honey”). Look past the racial weirdness, though, to the Snakes’ discovery of a secret place where Low, the Fall, and Willie Dixon all have something to say to one another. Then dance, fool.”-Spin Magazine March 2002 Andrew Beaujon
