The Domino Kings aren't the only band from Springfield, MO, you've never heard of, but they're probably the best. Their brand of hard-rockin', honky-tonk swing reverberates like a drunken earthquake. Lead singer, main songwriter, and rhythm guitarist Stevie Newman's warble is part Hank Snow, part Buck Owens, and part perfect. The punny "Pain in My Past" and "It's All Over but the Crying" sound like instant classics, and Les Gallier's guitar work makes these songs of heartbreak, betrayal, and rejection sparkle like broken glass in the parking lot of a neon-blasted Saturday-night roadhouse.
