Popa Chubby : Universal Breakdown Blues review

He cuts an unlikely figure for a guitar hero, his publicity shots suggesting R&B bling.

But Popa Chubby (aka Ted Horowitz) plays down and dirty blues-rock with attitude, his guitar sound as huge as his frame.

Don’t expect anything startlingly original – just rough-hewn riffs and lascivious licks.

I Don’t Want Nobody recalls Alvin Lee, a new take on Somewhere Over The Rainbow channels Roy Buchanan, and the show-stealing Rock Me Baby suggests Chubby has a whole lotta Hendrix in his CD collection.
