Mark Lanegan and Duke Garwood - Black Pudding 12 inch
Out of Stock
While Black Pudding is more limited and monochromatic than Laneganandrsquo;s other pairings-- the beauty-and-the-beast lustiness of the Isobel Campbell records is obviously missing, as is the mile-deep veneer of filth and depravity from the Dulli-assisted Gutter Twins records-- it doesnandrsquo;t necessarily suffer from it. Lanegan is a brand name that promises scarifying dirges and tough-guy sensitivity, and Black Pudding delivers on both accounts with workmanlike consistency. You can guess precisely what songs like andldquo;Death Rides a White Horseandrdquo; or andldquo;Sphinxandrdquo; sound like before playing them. If that makes Black Pudding a wheelhouse record, so be it; the Sly Stone-like downer funk of andldquo;Cold Mollyandrdquo; demonstrates that Lanegan falters whenever he ventures outside of his self-made pine box.
