King Mud – Victory Motel Sessions (2016)
King Mud features Van Campbell from the Black Diamond Heavies, Freddy J from the Left Lane Cruiser, and Parker Griggs from Radio Moscow. Early in 2016 they brought their musical talents together in L.A. at a studio near the Victory Motel, where the album got its name.
Victory Motel Sessions is overflowing with impressive guitar riffs full of soul. “Rat Time,” the first track, gets the album revved up with notes of inspiration from ZZ Top. The following track, “Smoked All My Bud,” screams gritty blues rock.
