Take the primal wail of American Blues and amplify them beyond the point with no limitations. Chicago area native Jay Gordon continues to shake planet earth with his onslaught of Electric Voodoo Blues. When you listen to BLUES VENOM – NO CURE you will see how Gordon has moved the blues forward to the 21st Century, infusing the music with the fire and power of rock while carving out his own place in the music world. BVNC features songs like, “Dockery’s Plantation” (for Robert Johnson), “World Blues,” “Slow Burn/Biker Mama,” “Red Hot Tempered Woman” and more – even a bonus track in honor of the late, great Phillip Walker. “Getting bit by Jay Gordon’s BLUES VENOM – NO CURE is similar to Peter Parker getting bit by a radioactive spider. There is no cure, but that’s a good thing,” states the world’s #1 authority on such matters, BLUES REVUE. “As solid as a blues album can be, and I consider one of the best I have heard this year,” the review concludes.
