“Before the last decade shut its door, THE SEWER RATS dropped the dynamite album "Save Yourself" Influenced by the gritty grace of Tom Waits and the deep, but very different blues sounds of Robert Johnson and Canned Heat. The Nissens sound can rival any major label group all day long. The opening cut "If I Care" brings fourth images of a crazy, yet fun carnival where burdens are few but heavy. If you have not heard this band yet, let me suggest track 5, "Drunkards Blues". The sound is precise, and the blues laden grooves and words dare to be resistant. The echoing sizzle that is the title track that leaves you hopeful for the future with lines like "I will never tell you why, I will meet you in the sky". The closing track "When the Reaper Comes" slowly creeps along like any finally should by asking "what and why" when at deaths dark door.”
