CHROME SPIDERS "Black Butterfly" 7inch

Through his musical career Thomas Jackson Potter has been a punk rock guitar grinder in Just Say No, the crazy man on his back porch armed with a sawed off flamethrower in Bantam Rooster, Mick Collin's most perfect comedic foil in the Dirtbombs, grandmaster of ceremonies in the white boy sweat funk combo the Detroit City Council and now here, along with the help from some dudes from the Menthols and the Real Bitters , as the rock-n-roll ringleader of the Chrome Spiders. "Black Butterfly" moves like an old Cadillac driven by Thin Lizzy with the Damned on the 8 track tape deck barreling down a neglected state highway. The farther it goes the more speed it picks up with Potter providing some of the best yelps in the business to push it even harder. "The Whip Hand" starts out with a blues-punk smolder creeping up on to some combustible material. The spark ignites which not only the cornfield on fire but burns the barn down too.
