Still listening to his album (and agree with this review):
Quote
Escovedo channels his troubles into a style of good, old-fashioned, authentic, guitar driven rock ‘n’ roll the likes of which stylistically we just don’t hear any more. His own admiration of the glam rock, proto-punk style spearheaded by the likes of The Velvet Underground, New York Dolls and even T. Rex is as evident here (take the clap/stomp of Shave The Cat or the slither and ramshackle of Johnny Volume) as is his debt to rockabilly and Tex-Mex sonic aesthetics

For Escovedo, whose first band The Nuns opened for the Sex Pistols at their final gig in 1977 and covered Iggy Pop’s “I Wanna Be Your Dog” backed by a string quartet, the rise of punk rock was nothing less than life changing.

“Patti Smith, the Ramones, the New York Dolls: Those bands were really pivotal for me,” says Escovedo. “The first time I saw Patti Smith was at Whiskey a Go Go in Hollywood, with just [guitarist and writer] Lenny Kaye and Richard Sohl on piano, and Patti singing and reciting poetry. The only people in the audience were The Stooges and my group of friends. Lenny was so supportive...to meet him, and have him encouraging us to form bands and do it on our own was very, very inspirational.”
