Loud angry noise that at its top-dollar best is the sonic equivalent of mixing all the syrups to make brown slush. Family tree includes Doomriders, Eye for an Eye, Cast Iron Hike, La Gritona, Luca Brasi, Anodyne, Michael Mancini, Ham Sandwich, and Sweetness. If you liked anything about any of them, chances are you'll find something for you in Blacktail. Not that we care one way or another, if you like, that's grand, but if you don't, so long. No hard feelings. What's important is that we dig it. Blacktail has no collective platform, mission, or vision. No long-term goals. No big plans. Blacktail lacks any identity beyond the sound. If you hear or see some overarching theme or agenda, you are mistaken. It ain't there.
