A crazed, dirty, raw blend of blues, funk, soul, and gritty garage rock, THE BLACK GODFATHER finds the eternally eccentric R&B wildman Andre Williams at his most intense. Backed by a cast of characters that includes appropriately scrappy rockers like Dirtbombs leader Mick Collins (who also produced the album) and Jon Spencer, Williams generates a towering, unhinged wail that's easily the equal of the raucous din created by the aforementioned axemeisters.
From the James Brown-meets-Captain Beefheart freak-funk of the title track to the trashy, in-your-face surf/garage-rock stomp of the gloriously sleazy "Whip the Booty" and the Tom Waits-goes-to-Memphis soul-blues of "Nasty Women," this is Williams at his loosest and toughest simultaneously, pushing it to the limit and well beyond. And that's not even mentioning the insane, psychedelic-tinged, extended version of the Cramps' mind-bending classic "I Cant Find My Mind" that closes out the album. Even by Williams's standards, it's a pretty twisted affair.
