      BB Chung King and The Buddaheads rock!

      Howlin At the Moon by The Buddaheads is a superb album and I was surprised that it wasn't on dooyoo. For lovers of guitar players, in particular blues this is an album you will most definitely appreciate. The guitar playing is so infectious that even on your first listen, you'll swear you've heard the track before because it's simply too good not to be known!

      Alan Mirikitani, the Asian American guitarist and leader of the band started playing when he was just 4 and that practice has definitely played off, as he combines a Hendrix, Clapton and old school blues sound to sound like the coolest dude on the planet. The guitar playing is never ending and comes off as really smooth and calm yet close enough to the edge at times to seem outstanding.

      Mirkitani calls himself BB Chung King and whilst I've clearly described him as the best current blues guitar player there is, some praise should also be laid upon his band who rock along with ease and great timing to ensure that BB Chung King has lots of space to do his thing. Whilst the band have been together since 1994, it's Howlin' At the Moon which houses the majority of their work being not only their longest album but also the one with the best tracks on in my opinion.

      Check them out on youtube...

      Two great tracks from the album are Company Graveyard - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QpWMktfuDv0 and
