Peter Parcek: Everybody Wants to Go To Heaven

Guitarist and vocalist Peter Parcek rocks the boogie with a rotating team anchored around himself and Marco Giovino/dr, Luther Dickinson/g and Spooner Oldham/key and an assorted array of bassists, strings and steel guitarists. Some snarling harmonica provided by Mickey Raphael makes for a swampy “Pat Hare” while ominous shadows are cast on “See That My Grave Is Kept Clean.” The guitars and rhythm develop a snarling Bo Diddley groove on “Mississippi Suitcase” and the team boogaloos on “Shiver” and the shuffling “Things Fall Apart.” Parcek’s guitar is 70s fuzzy and sinewy as on “World Keep on Turning” and gets bluesy on the thoughtful title tune.He’ll get you standing up from your chair if he comes to your town.
