#46 The Orwells “Terrible Human Beings” – 52 Weeks of 2017 Albums

Rock n roll godhead crooner Jim Morrison is alive and well and inhabiting the body of Orwells lead singer Mario Cuomo. This fact is never more true than in “They Put A Body In The Bayou”, the kick ass opening track to The Orwells 3rd LP Terrible Human Beings. Double-tracking his limited low to mid range vocal swoon through these 2 and a half minute nuggets of hip shaking guitar driven psychpop brings to mind more the youthful wide eyed electric innocence of 1967’s The Doors (“Soul Kitchen”, “Twentieth Century Fox”) than the world weary blues of 27 Club alumnus Mr. Mojo Rising at his untimely end. A fitting soundtrack for the coming 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love, 2.0 style.
