15. Limes – Rhinestone River

Limes - Rhinestone RiverLimes are the best hiden secret of Memphis rock’n’roll scene. Brain child of Shawn Cripps, that also contained Harlan T Bobo and Jack Oblivian in the line up at one point, they have been around for 10 years now. But, if we don’t count their Internet and Australian only album Tarantula from 2005, Rhinestone River that came out on Goner this year. Dirty, muddy, lazy sound that rolls out of this record keeps in touch with the best timeless tratidions of this music that we love to call rock’n’roll. This is an album that Keith Richards, Brian Jones and Charlie Watts could have recorded on a hazy, stoned night, while Jagger and Wyman are absents, chasing girls somewhere.
