Tommy Guerrero : Return Of The Bastard (Galaxia)
Tommy’s music, like his graphic design, is beguilingly simple. He sounds like a guy fucking around on his front stoop, and maybe that’s exactly accurate, but the results touch you down to your toes. His melodies dance lightly around your head while the rhythms build under your feet. His is soul music, made by a street kid raised on Santana and Bill Withers, with more than a little nod to The Clash and Public Enemy in there, too.
