Last Rites: Protoplasm – The Archaeological Dig For Metal’s Ancestors

We’ve started a monthly proto-metal column over at Last Rites. For this inaugural feature I wrote about Incredible Hog’s lone album, Volume 1:

In an attempt to set themselves apart from the drove wallowing in the muck of curdled Cream, Incredible Hog released a raucous glam stomper of a single. “Lame” was anything but, a rousing singalong of the “Take Me Bak ‘Ome”/”Rock and Roll, Part 2” variety, only a little rougher. It lives in the same grotty alley that AC/DC would strut out of a few years later. “Lame” is a glorious song, utterly ignorant of what simple, sloppy magic it contained.
