Biography

The release of Let It Roll, the tenth album of Holland’s best-known bluesrockers The Juke Joints, coincides with the tenth anniversary of their ever-expanding fanclub. That calls for a party! No wonder that this latest release is a party album extraordinaire.

As we have come to expect, the album is brimful of blues styles, incorporating Chicago blues, rock ‘n’ roll and rockabilly, all linked by the band’s unmatched energy, which is driven to unprecedented heights by the festive character of the occasion. As usual frontman Peter Kempe has penned most of the songs: the well-chosen covers truly contribute to the generally exuberant atmosphere: how about Steve Earle’s Steve’s Last Ramble or Rory Gallagher’s crowd-pleasing traditional Bullfrog Blues?

The band´s status is underlined by the guest appearances of Holland´s best female blues singer, Barrelhouse´s Tineke Schoemaker, who is featured on Marcia Ball’s rollicking Louella and Don Bryant’s 99 Pounds, which Ann Peebles sang to fame, and two contributions by renowned Dutch slide-guitarist Marcel Scherpenzeel on the title track Let It Roll and the John Lee Hooker classic I’m In The Mood.

When after 13 red-hot tracks the roof has come off, the band delivers a true after party in the three bonus tracks. Chilling out is virtually impossible, though, especially in their highly infectious remake of Rory Gallagher’s Going To My Hometown, which is delivered here in Peter Kempe’s regional dialect!
