BLACK’S BEAT, THE DAILY PLAN-IT (Dan Black) It’s been a long time since a fully blown blues album by an Aussie band has made the national charts. This seems sure to change with the release of Bad Weather Blues by the Bondi Cigars. Out now on Larrikin, the Cigars have unleashed a scorching set of blues and rock numbers that more than match the white blues bands coming out of the USA on such famous labels as Alligator, Rounder and Black Top.

Most of the album tracks are Pacey/Karski compositions, rather than tired old covers that most blues acts seem to rely on. Les Karski’s guitar work confirms his status as one of this country’s very best – smoky on the slow numbers and full of fire on the rockers. The opening track Booze Blues, a driving rocker, sets the tone for the album; but the Cigars also show they’re adept at bluesy ballads with track three, Lies and Tenderness.
