Danko Jones – Below The Belt (Aquarius/EMI Music Canada)

Far more popular in Europe than they are in their native Canada, Danko Jones, as usual, pulls no punches with their latest record Below The Belt. Danko Jones is about as meat n’ potatoes as rock n roll bands come these days. Hell, AC/DC have essentially re-made the same record for the past 20+ years and like their Aussie counterparts, Danko Jones and co are here to prove that rock n roll can still be fun. Tired of artsy-fartsy bands? Take one listen to this latest effort from Danko Jones, hoist a cold one high in the air and thank your lucky stars that not all musicians have saving the world on their agendas.
