Sticks Downey's debut album is a chewed-up turnbuckle with the tension-adjusting bolts exposed; a perfect place to get your head cracked wide open.
These are songs about wrestling, baseball before the strike of 1994, high-stakes gambling, tattered band t-shirts, iced black coffee at two in the morning, Metal Mania marathons, foreign objects, game show hosts, local landmarks, Nike sneakers from 1989, and being better than you at things.
