BAD OUT THERE
Frank Carillo & the Bandoleros
On his new disc, "Bad Out There," Carillo offers driving roots rock that demonstrates the singer-guitarist's readness to emerge as a solo artist. He's worked as a backing artist for Peter Frampton and John Hammond and has written songs for Carly Simon and Joan Jett but his own forte is a tasty mixture of blues, country and rock. His gruff vocals add a nice level of authenticity to the tales he spins, which often detour into Tom Waits lunacy and that's a compliment.
