HEAVY TRASH > Going Way Out With Heavy Trash

In “Walk the Line,” June Carter refers to Johnny Cash’s voice as “Steady like a train, sharp like a razor.” If she were speaking of his Sun Studio sound, then with Heavy Trash, the tandem project of John Spencer and Matt Verta-Ray, the train would be a runaway and the razor rusted out.Label: YEP ROC

In “Walk the Line,” June Carter refers to Johnny Cash’s voice as “Steady like a train, sharp like a razor.” If she were speaking of his Sun Studio sound, then with Heavy Trash, the tandem project of John Spencer and Matt Verta-Ray, the train would be a runaway and the razor rusted out. Sporting elephant’s balls and a gallon of whiskey, the duo, along with a supporting cast, including The Sadies, completes a hair-raising rock retrospective here. There’s high-heeled strutting rhythms, ass-whipping guitars, and vocals ranging from the King to Cash to Lux Interior on numbers like “Pure Gold,” “Double Line,” and “Way Out.” But there’s really nothing new here; just a couple of buddies letting it all hang WAY OUT.
