Band : Abe Diddy & The Krautboys
Album title : Follow
Label : Office 39
Distributor : Clearspot
Release date : 2012
Review : CD

Based on their name, you might think Abe Diddy & The Krautboys is some kraut band from USA. But that's not the case. This may be one of those bands that does themselves a disservice with that stupid name. Instead of kraut or usa the band name might indicate, the music here is bluesy stoner from Holland. While the songs may be powerhouse riffing, overflowing with guitar and harp solos, it pretty much lacks in the creative department. Think of this as a second rate Antler/ Wo Fat/ Half Man band.

It's been done a thousand different times, by a thousand different bands, and it has rarely been worth five minutes of anyone's time. Abe Diddy, despite what I'm sure are the best of intentions, does nothing to break this trend.
