Tonight, sludgy hardcore stalwarts Cable celebrate the 10th anniversary and attendant re-release of their 2001 paean to drugs 'n' booze, Northern Failures. The band's swaggering southern-rock riffs (oddly, they're from Connecticut), whiskey-soaked vocals, and heavy-footed drum stomp are audibly the inspirationat least partiallyfor mega-stoner-metal bands such as Mastodon and High on Fire, though Cable only ever got their dues from underground. With that in mind, let's just hope that revisiting an album with that title isn't portent. Shout loudly for their Marshall Tucker cover. With Slacks.
