Skunkjuice – at The Vertex – Review

June 1, 1993

The beat styling of J.T. Main courses blood-pumping rhythm through the veins of their first song. Scott Francis roars low, guttural melodies of “Daisy Chain.”

June 1, 1993

Dealing with the life of a post-slavery black woman, Gayle Jones illustrates the struggle of her main character with a painfully honest depiction.

June 1, 1993

From melodious, street-level sub-pop grit to hard-edged acoustic R.E.M.ish semi-folk to alternative blues jams with twangy harmonies and congos… congos?!
