Fricke's Picks: AC/DC's Demon Seed Angus Khan


Reasons to give some ear to Black Leather Soul (Nickel and Dime), by the Los Angeles power-rock five Angus Khan: The band's name is brilliant; guitarist Frank Meyer and bassist Dino Everett were in ace neo-Stooges group the Streetwalkin' Cheetahs; the album opens with a hot cover of "Midnight Moses," by the Sensational Alex Harvey Band; and the whiff of AC/DC is strong in Derek Christensen's son-of-Bon Scott vocals and the chanted choruses. You get some generic put-downs ("Scene Bitch"). But in songs like "Call Me Motherfucker" and "Exile on Mean Street," you get a lot more meat and moxie.
