Portland, Ore., blues duo Hopeless Jack and the Handsome Devil sounds like capital T-rouble and performs like a boxer fighting his way out of a corner. It’s common to see guitarist Jack Beisel leap atop the drum set and howl threats of murder over grungy slide riffs and the furious drumming of Smilin’ Pete Thomas.
Anyone doubting that rock ‘n’ roll can still be dangerous needs only to hear the whisky-haggard tone of Biesel’s voice to know it is still as dangerous as a cornered wildcat. ~ Boise Weekly
