Wolfpin – Remember

Wolfpin – Remember
Sonic Rendezvous – 2009
Rock, Blues, Retro
Rated: ***

On this sick and twisted Monday morning in the last week of the Dutch Courage Month we visit the grimy bluesrockers from Amsterdamn called Wolfpin. A powertrio featuring Marcel Scherpenzeel, Maarten Witsel and Henk Schutten. Three old blues souls that know where to steal the mustard and what to cook up with it. It’s heavy retro laden blues is filled with pure soulful riffage and seventies groove. It comes across as a tribute to all the masters of old. It recalls tunes we know from Rory Gallagher, Johnny Winter and Robin Trower. But also on occasion incorporates a more edgy sound we attribute to Hendrix. Or even a The Wind Cries Mary, Jimi honoring ode. But they are at their best when they forget to honor the giants and simply play their warm and glowing sound. And when the drummer reminds of a time when a percussionist could play free and voluntarily. Passionate blues to start off a week right…
