Seattle’s explosive blues-rock duo My Goodness just left the UK after a full UK tour with friends We Are Augustines. Not the pairing you would expect if you compared them musically but both bands have a reputation for giving everything live and they did not disappoint at Dingwalls. So much so, we decided to interview them.
Their first UK release C’Mon Doll has a swaggers between rock and roll and a dose of filthy blues that RL Burnside would be proud of. On record, this track is underpinned with a heavy stomp but live, it’s gargantuan riffs bellow out through their speakers whilst the sweat pours from their brows. It’s a huge racket from a 2-piece and a highly recommended experience.
Produced by Chris Common of These Arms Are Snakes their debut single ‘CMon Doll’ and b-side track ‘Lost in the Soul’ paint 2 sides of this beast. One filled with a relentless drive and cry for help, the other sees the come-down, the lighter, more melodic and stripped back My Goodness that allows people to draw breath whilst they slay the stage.
My Goodness keep their blues-infused bluster simple by plugging in and letting rip. It’s about amplified, electrified music without the need for computer technology, samples or any bullshit and we dig it.
