These seedy ersatz sailors from Salton Sea started out in the mid-’90s as a relatively stripped-down and rootsy, rockabilly-style band infused with sodden hints of Tom Waits’ bohemian affectations. Even then, though, they weren’t strictly revivalists so much as they were junkyard scavengers digging through yesterday’s trash to find new thrills. Over time, Throw Rag have gotten louder and faster, with a fulsome and powerful punk-rock attack that culminated on 2005’s 13 Feet and Rising, which featured guest stars Jello Biafra and Keith Morris, as well as lead howler Sean Wheeler’s surly duet with Lemmy Kilmister on a hard-rock pummeling of Merle Haggard’s “Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down.” Wheeler often tours with Mark Lanegan and collaborates with Zander Schloss, but he’s at his full strength when fronting Throw Rag.
