Woodshed - Single

Jeff German & The Blankety Blanks

5 guys, 96 beers, half a dozen vintage microphones, and a little bit of reverb = BLISS! At least that seems to be the recipe for Jeff German's first single "Woodshed" from his upcoming sophomore release "...twelve packs, eight tracks and black and white TV," on Slothtrop Records. This five song maxi single features Jeff German and the revolving cast of studio musicians he dubs The Blankety Blanks turning it on, turning it up and yes, turning it loose. With outstanding tracks like "Black & Blue" and a surprisingly authentic version of the Paul Westerberg classic "Achin' To Be". German and his compatriots might not be aiming to be "Big Star" but if this preview is any indication they'll be stars soon enough.
