Popa Chubby – Deliveries After Dark
After the international Success of Electric Chubbyland Popa hits hard with sheer power and raw blues rock anthems in this 13 track release due out on Dixiefrog on Oct. 1st.
Searing guitars meet melodic hooks on a thunderous backbeat. The title track (« Deliveries After Dark ») evokes shades of AC/DC while the anthemic « Let The Music Set You Free » rocks Zeppelesque with its Bonham like beat and layered guitars. The Motown like « Sally Likes To Run » is a track Popa wrote about his beloved 1971 Ford Mustang Fastback. It evokes an era of reckless abandon that is prominent throughout the record. The spacey and evocative « Woman In My Bed Dub » is straight outa Kingston and the smoke is thick as the dub mix.
Popa Chubby's legacy speaks for itself and the innovative Genre Busting New Yorker has set forth to make his masterpiece. Popa Speaks from his New York Studio : " Every Artist says the same thing : This is my best record ever..... Well I ain’t gonna bullshit ya. All I can tell you is you need rock and roll in your soul and I am the man in control. The Blues are alive and well and Rock and Roll will Never Die!!! " Are You Ready To Rock!!??

1. AllMusic - David Jeffries
Coming off his two-volume tribute to Jimi Hendrix, Electric Chubbyland, Popa Chubby is still high on rock & roll. While his love of the blues remains strong and dominates a handful of the tracks here,Deliveries After Dark features more heavy metal thunder and hard rocking than usual. The furious "Sally Likes to Run" captures that arena rock feel with enough cowbell to keep Christopher Walkenhappy while the title track crunches like Deep Purple in "Highway Star" mode. The epic "Man of the Blues" should easily satisfy longtime fans with its classic Chubby sound, but "Grown Man Crying Blues" and "I'll Piss on Your Grave" sound like the blues by way of a rock band. For Chubby, it's usually the other way around, but he's often mentioned his growing up on rock before finding the blues, so don't be too surprised that he sounds ten years younger than he did on his last album. The ambitious performances, the good-timing rock songs, the searing guitar solos, and the willingness to experiment -- "Woman in My Bed Dub" flirts with reggae while the "Theme from The Godfather" is done cowabunga surf style -- all suggest youth and embrace freedom. With all this excitement coming across in a convincing, fist-pumping fashion, Deliveries After Dark is a very loud success. It's only a matter of how much blues the longtime Chubby fan is willing to sacrifice.
