ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
12 Packs, 8 Tracks and Black & White TV
Jeff German & The Blankety Blanks
If you were to get lost while driving through a somewhat familiar ghost town, and you happened upon an old white church whose paint was chipping off, Jeff German’s music would be playing inside. His new record, 12 Packs and 8 Tracks and Black & White TV, is a soundtrack not just for the journey but for the experience of being lost. Of having faith not because miracles abound but because it’s the only thing you have left.

Review: Adobe and Teardrops
"You may remember Jeff German's first album from a few years ago. It was a barnstormer of a Midwest rock album. 12 Packs, in contrast, is a more sober affair. German, best known for the Cur Dogs and as a backing musician for other Columbus acts like Lydia Loveless, is a straightforward lyricist. The songs get their punch from the way German and the Blankety Blanks sell the them: no frills and with 100% commitment.

The Blankety Blanks show they can dig in to to the bleak prairie loneliness of "Hang On" (which features another Lydia Loveless sideman and regular Adobe & Teardrops customer, Todd May) just as well as the for-friends-only jam "Woodshed." These may not be complex songs, but they sure do capture a wide range of emotions. "
