"Come to me when I’m wounded… I love a ruined man"

When sassy front women Deicha Carter and Abbie Thurgood open their mouths and sing, images of some of the finest, funkiest soul singers and most compelling ‘60s garage rock waft through your psyche and bones. The straight goods are delivered with grit, groove and perfect backing from Anders Czarnecki, Steven Halvorson and Willy Garcia. Guitar riffs, driving horns and a solid back beat build around bang-on harmonies as this gutsy beast with a doctorate in black magic melts your bits into the hot and sweaty underworld. There are many good reasons they’ve become the go-to support vocalists for Calgary’s soulful rock outfit Copperhead and others, and that one of them fronts another hot band, Deicha & the Voodoos. And it’s no surprise that a Nathaniel Rateliff video plays on YouTube after one of theirs, shot at their Women’s Centre benefit series. KC
