Armed with a sack of harmonicas, a mess of foot percussion and a road - worn Telecaster, Shawn “The Harpoonist” Hall and Matthew “The Axe Murderer” Rogers kick out raw and primal blues, while electrifying the genre a with a lightning bolt of new life. Hall and Rogers limit their sound to whatever they can play between them, using only their mouths, hands and feet. Shawn Hall provides soul-tinged vocals and blues harmonica, while Matthew Rogers rips on the guitar and foot percussion simultaneously. Their sound pays homage to influences ranging from Robert Johnson to Jack White, but it’s smothered in greasy, gritty soul and punched with funk.
