Comments Off on Dirty 7: Jonathan Tyler

Jonathan TylerJonathan Tyler & The Northern Lights

From the shadowy, shirtless, Indian headdress wearing figure on the cover of Pardon Me — the raucous ‘n’ wooing debut from Jonathan Tyler & The Northern Lights — to the nakedly lascivious groovers and panty loosening mid-tempo ballads inside, this band seems to know a thing or two about skin-to-skin communication. Their album has the flair and young hunger of early Black Crowes, Faces and other folks with killer riff instincts and an almost unhealthy love of rock. Toss in some of Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble’s blues bite and hip swing and it’s a pretty attractive package. Listen to Pardon Me here, and the band offers free live downloads here. Sensing he’d have a thing or two to say about the naughty things in his head, we invited Tyler to take our misbehaved survey.
