One time, I saw Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers live. When Roger walked in, thin and lanky and greasy, my immediate reaction was, "This man is a rascal."
So imagine how much character Tom McSod gives off when I can sense that through my headphones.
Caution Wet Floor is a badass collection of incredible songs. From the drunken ballad "Dirty Ol' Randall" to the sea shanty "Homeword Bound (Again)" (which features McSod's equally badass mom) to the standout piece of the album, "Wealthy Man's God," McSod revels in his person as a bottom feeder but shows that he's far smarter than the average barfly. Caution Wet Floor is as fun as it is gritty. Like cheap whiskey, it'll get your night going in the right direction, but it'll leave behind a sticky film the next day. In McSod's case, that's not a bad thing.
