It feels more honest and personal like that - "IT'S BLUES JIM BUT NOT AS WE KNOW IT" - Sure LT respect the traditions and you will hear elements of Fred McDowell, Son House and Muddy Waters among others in their music (albeit played through a self-modified Vox AC30 and a Bassman RI that the cats have used as a scratching board) - "OPEN YOUR EARS, YOU ARE INFLUENCED" - But you will also hear nuances of allsorts of other good music too because LT realise that that there are wonderful things in all genres.
