Al ‘Yeti’ Bones and his skeleton crew in Gypsy Chief Goliath got the brews flowin’ and the eyes glowin’ down at the dingy dungeon we all have come to know and love as the Coach & Horses.  These electric gypsies’ brand of stoner rock/metal is a little more eclectic than the standard fare of those within that genre.  Kicking things in with the monster-groove of ‘Black Samurai,’  the band got their faithful followers and friends bobbing heads to the doomy rhythms.  The guys continued to churn out swamp and sludge through the night as their harmonica player Brodie brought the demonic blues aspect to the fold with his Sabbath ‘wizardry.’  Yeah, if you like the real early heavy blues rock of Black Sabbath coated with an added crispy and metallic crunch, you’ll dig the sounds of Gypsy Chief Goliath.  Sidenote:  A surprise and unlikely rendition of Alice Cooper’s “Go To Hell” was a highlight mid-set.
