The Crack Pipes, led by smoky vocalist Ray Colgan, debuted with Every Night Saturday Night (Sympathy, 2001), a schizophrenic collection that alternated furious, distorted garage rock'n'roll (Cottonpickin') and devoluted blues numbers a` la Jon Spencer (Every Night Saturday Night, Two Gold Rings). Plus an eight-minute cover of Downtown Diddley.

The blues is the center of mass on follow-up album Snakes In My Veins (Emperor Jones, 2003), despite the fact that it begins with the hysterical Cinnamon Roll and despite a shouted wicked Snakes in my Vein and despite the exuberant ska-core rave-up of Special Rider. But Avenues and Boulevards, which sounds like the Aerosmith covering the Doors' Riding in the Storm, The World Is A Crooked Place and the hyper-psychedelic slow and distorted nine-minute workout Jawbone Blues, reveal Colgan's blues soul. The Bob Dylan-esque shuffle of Super Motel 8 adds pathos to the proceedings.

I Crack Pipes, capitanati da Ray Colgan, debuttarono con Every Night Saturday Night (Sympathy, 2001), un'album schizofrenico, in cui si alternano furiosi e distorti garage rock'n'roll (Cottonpickin') e pezzi blues alla Jon Spencer(Every Night Saturday Night, Two Gold Rings). Piu' una cover di otto minuti di Downtown Diddley.

Il blues il perno attorno a cui ruota Snakes In My Veins (Emperor Jones, 2003), nonostante il fatto che inizia con l'isterica Cinnamon Roll, nonostante la perversa Snakes in my Vein e nonostante l'esuberante ska-core rave-up di Special Rider. In Avenues and Boulevards, che suona come se gli Aerosmith facessero le cover di Riding in the Storm, The World Is A Crooked Place dei Doors, e nei 9 minuti psichedelici ,lenti e distorti di Jawbone Blues, si sente tutta l'anima blues di Colgan. La Dylaniana Super Motel 8 aggiunge infine una buona dose di pathos al tutto.
