Howlin' is the fantastic debut album from this teenage combo on the California-based cult label that is Wild Records. It is a fourteen-track stunner that holds a breathtaking and highly entertaining mixture of Rock'n'Roll, Rockabilly and Country Blues, all performed and recorded with sheer passion and power. Songs like Run And Hide, The Desert, All Through The Night, It Ain't Working or their lone cover version that is Nobody's Guy are just few examples that capture THE DELTA BOMBERS' energy in different moods and tempos and prove my point that these guys are far more than a 50's retro style band.
Three years after their hard to top debut CD, the Las Vegas-based four piece created this follow-up full-length masterpiece, aptly and consequently entitled Wolf. Their recipe for success basically remains unchanged, though an extra dose of Sixties Garage Rock feel has also been added to the mix. Clever song-writing, the charismatic lead vocals of Chris Moinichen, strong guitar play by Andrew Himmler and a tight rhythm section back up intensity, enthusiasm and true to the bone rockin' vibes that is written all over this Wild goody. Highlights include the title track Wolf that has become a signature tune ever since, Who Are You, Hole In My Head and two excellent covers of Jack Dupree's Stumbling Block and Howlin' Wolf's Smokestack Lightning.
