Long Distance Operator
Sweet Lucy Devine
Street: 04.14
Long Distance Operator = Danzig + Blue Oyster Cult
Long Distance Operator mine the twilight years of hard rock before it devolved into butt rock. This is a good thing for those of us who happen to like proto-butt rock, and Long Distance Operator hit their metallic stride on the excellent “Torches.” It’s tricky, though, to navigate this territory in the age of irony, and several of the songs don’t support their ambitious weight. But if you’ve been jonesing for bombastic frontmen and harmonized guitars since 1981, Sweet Lucy Devine might scratch your itch.
