Uncle Scratch's Gospel Revival

Anyone expecting to make money as a musician is a little nuts. But if you want to really rake, it's best to be completely psychotic. While the ramshackle nature of their instruments -- which include cracked cymbals, cardboard barrels, and a mic constructed from an old CB radio -- could be a gimmick, this duo's sizzling attack and unrepentant passion carry the day. The offbeat, devil-baiting nature of the lyrics -- with their pokes at religious hypocrisy -- is enough to make you cry, "Praise Jesus!"
