Muddy Moonshine: Muddy & Wild

Firstly, a history lesson; Finnish Southern Rock band Muddy Moonshine was founded in 2014 when good friends Jarmo, Jonne and Tero had a vision to start an acoustic blues ensemble. The band played covers, as well as a few of their own songs; at which point Saku joined the group on drums. The band recorded and published at their own expense an EP entitled Distilled in Finland in 2015, after which Kim replaced Jaakko as bassist. As the number of gigs increased, new songs were written. Stefan came along and replaced Niko on guitar. Muddy's musical style was changing as well, from Blues towards a more Southern Rock style. Secret Entertainment came along and offered the band a record deal, which led to the production of their first full length album. It was also at this time that Muddy Moonshine decided to take on Aleksi Ahokas (Rapture, Fragilehollow) as their singer.

The new and complete line-up is Aleksi Ahokas – vocals, Jarmo Ikala - guitars/slide, Jonne Roth – guitars Kim Sandström – bass, Saku Manninen – drums and Stefan Granroth – guitars and together they have constructed a very pleasurable piece of Southern Rock. The band veers more towards Americana if anything although tracks like "Drunk as Fuck", "Bottle of Love" and "Moonshineman" extol the virtues of hard livin' as well as any Skynyrd/Hatchet song. Occasionally I found myself looking for an injection of pace to change things up but I did enjoy the ludicrous lyric of "Funkytown" and the overall vibe.
