The Closeout Kings musical countdown, day 3, part 1

I got a few more song suggestions yesterday, so I’m going to have to do a couple posts a day to get them all in before the release date.  The release date for what?  The Closeout Kings.  When is the release date? October 24, 2014.  When is that?  This Friday.  That’s it.  That’s as subtle a sales pitch as I can give… except to remind you that it is available for pre-order right now!

Today’s song choice comes from Brian G. Riesen.  Brian is actually a beta reader from back in the day.  He’s been around since before beta readers were called beta readers.  He is one of the first peeps outside of my family to read The Takers: Book One of the Oz Chronicles.  For The Closeout Kings, he thinks Muleskinner Blues by The Cramps captures the essence of The Closeout Kings.  In his words: “I hear something heavy, metal/punk, yet rednecky.”  The Closeout Kings is definitely all those things.
