Album Notes
Tony Youngblood began his musical career at the age of 9, recording odd noises on old tape recorders and bouncing them together. In high school, he graduated to a 4 track tape record and made voluminous amounts of hissy, low-fi strangeness. In college, he founded the legendary live experimental improv radio show ~ORE~ Prefab Audio Extrapolations, featuring his earlier field recordings. From there, he produced the ultra-rare cult albums, \"Recorder\" and \"Timothy & The Poo Poo Heads.\" On \"Let\'s Play Havoc,\" Tony finally cuts his teeth with a live band and a real studio. It\'s no polished gem, and it\'s not intended to be. The album was recorder mostly live with the help of Frank Black & The Catholic\'s guitarist Rich Gilbert, Country session legend Jimmy C. Clark, and Tarbox Rambler\'s Scott McEwan at bass and the helm. The result is a loud, immediate, blast of rock n\' roll, punk, and alt-country, imperfect, textured, and a hell of a good album.



to write a review

As you get older and likely (hopefully) progress from the impotent doldrums of popular music, you're bound to come across those rare individuals who posses the all to rare talent inherent to a genuine songwriter. Harsh, volatile, and from the heart. This guy knows what music is.

alt folk!
I add an exclamation point, cause never does this album abandon hope (even on the song about returning from the grave, if you can believe it). Ballsy and in your face at one turn, sweet with harmonies from Tony's girl, Melody, at another. Purchase and enjoy.

Amazing album!
I recently had the honor of doing artwork for Tony Youngblood's new album, "Let's Play Havoc" and I couldn't be happier. I am thrilled to be associated with such a wonderful album. I love the opening song "Hoorah Hoorah", which sets the album off with a BANG! It's a really rocking song. The rest of the album flows nicely and it's a really great shift from the first song to the second and on and on. Tony can shift gears seamlessly, which is really impressive. His voice goes from gruff to tender and back again. His skill and talent as a writter and performer are more than evident on this album and I highly reccomend it to anyone!


What's new in Nashville.
There are different kinds of albums. There are polished hygienic ones; dark dangerous ones. There are ones with a sweet buttery voice; then there is Tony Youngblood’s “Let’s Play Havoc”. His vocals range from a drunken vibrato to a scratchy growl. He owns his songs. This diamond in the rough is one thing. Once you hear his inventive chord progressions and his well written lyrics--well, let’s just say it’s not rough anymore. Tony, I hope you make it. The world needs old souls like you.


Excellent Havoc!
Let's Play Havoc wreaks the best sort of havoc in my eardrums. It's more than a head-nodder, or a toe-tapper. It makes me want to jump out of my seat and start dancing around, shaking my ass, and all sorts of wild, ungodly things. Except for "Rocks Under Bare Feet & Dreams" that just makes me want to swoon.
Tony Youngblood is a genius, and a true (roughed-up) gem of a songwriter.
