“With raucous performances, Fried Chicken & Whiskey delivers on the promise of its title. That track is pure funk, with a bridge borrowed from James Brown's "Sex Machine" and an Eddie Hazel guitar break. Jack Edery & UltraSuede rock chaotically on "Throw a Boogie Woogie" and "Blues Outside My Window" settling down for the Chicago-style "Blind Woman With a Gun" and the desolate slow blues, "Mr Earvin." Edery's solo acoustic blues, "Turn Me Loose in Your Kitchen" and the delicate "Memphis" (featuring producer Jimbo Mathus on guitar) create a lull before the soul romp "Knucklebuster" closes the self-released disc with greasy organ and Lonnie Mack-style guitar.
