Rock legend Peter Case, formerly of the Nerves and the Plimsouls, has been a solo artist since 1986 but he’s probably never been better than right now.  His new album Wig! is a blistering affair with raucous blues-rock songs, perhaps made a little more desperate and raw by Case’s brush with death a few years ago.

He had heart surgery in January 2009 and Wig! is his first record since.  He made a quick visit to Houston on 7/31, playing an in-store at Cactus Music and Video before heading to a gig in San Antonio the same night.  What is there to say – this is great stuff, get the CD and dig what Case is puttin’ down in the videos below.
