Miss Quincy – Like the Devil Does

by • March 19, 2012 • Album Reviews1136


Miss Quincy is running hard. She has a new CD, Like The Devil Does, a new band, The Showdown, and has started an eight-month tour that will take her across Canada before launching the European leg in late March. Just for the sheer hell of it she also recently starred as the heroine, tied to the railroad tracks, in a new silent movie music video shot by Patrick Shannon. A role that ended with her in the hospital after falling backwards on the tracks. If there was an award for sheer energy she would come first. This CD is her second and it continues in the spirit of the roots sound that she has already established, but it both ups the musical ante with better musicians and moves down into dirtier territory, just like the devil does. Produced by Tim Williams, a stalwart of the Alberta blues scene, and with the support of an additional eight backing musicians, it has a live gutbucket sound. There are ten tracks on the CD, nine originals and a courageous cover of Nina Simone’s I Want a Little Sugar in My Bowl. With The Showdown she tours as a three piece of electric guitar, drums and upright bass. She says they have never played a boring show and never intend to. We believe her.
