The legendary lord of lascivious lyrics, the baron of badass R'n'B, the duke of dirty-ass rock'n'roll is finally back with a new one. And check out the disciples of sleazy soul & primitive raunch he's got with him: The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, The Countdowns, The Compulsive Gamblers, Cheater Slicks, The Dirtbombs and Stooges' Funhouse saxophonist Steve Mackay all contribute to The Black Godfather.1999's Silky introduced a new generation to the Andre Williams experience, and recent converts appear to harbor an appropriately insatiable appetite for all things Andre. "Lap Dance," his recent 12-inch backed by the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, has even shown up as incidental music on HBO's highly rated and critically acclaimed The Sopranos. Williams' live shows in the USA and Europe have turned into full-on rhythm'n'blues and rock'n'roll rave-up tesimonials. Fans emerge sweaty, dazed and, somehow, cleansed by The Man's lewd, loud and licentious litany of life with the ladies. Fans, reviewers and fellow musicians all agree that Andre Williams's take on moderation is that it should be taken in moderation.
