Javier Escovedo- Kicked Out Of Eden LP. News flash: rock & roll isn’t dead. Sure, it’s the 21st century so you have to go looking for it, but that doesn't mean it's not out there. Case in point: Javier Escovedo. Javier Escovedo, who most people know as one of the founding members of The Zeros, The True Believers and one of the pioneers of the ‘70’s West Coast punk movement has been writing, singing, and playing vital, heartfelt music since the mid-'70s, and it's clear he isn't stopping anytime soon. If you slap on his new album ‘Kicked Out of Eden’, you’ll hear real-deal rock & roll done right. Raw, straight-up, no-frills rock & roll, with lots of swagger and just as much guitar to keep things lively without drowning out the tunes. ‘Kicked Out of Eden’ is a scorcher that remains true to Javier's love of '60s garage, '70s punk and glam infused rock ‘n roll. Recommended.
