Burden Brothers

After making a name for himself on the psychobilly scene with the Reverend Horton Heat, Burden Brothers drummer Taz Bentley scored locally on Tenderloin’s major-label release Bullseye. The Brothers’ singer, former Toadies frontman Todd Lewis, had more success (a platinum record) with a song more people heard (“Possum Kingdom”) and thus experienced deeper fallout. Now these two down-on-their-luck rockers have joined together to stick it to the majors and make them regret every act they cut for failing to duplicate platinum success. Lewis’ wail nearly outshines Chris Cornell’s, and Bentley’s distinctive percussive presence gives the Burden Brothers an urgent, crisp flavor.
