While he may not necessarily be a household name, Andre Williams is known in R&B and blues circles for recording filthy-sounding, gutbucket soul since the '50s. Williams has experienced some highs in his career, recording for a subsidiary of Motown in the early '60s and legendary Chicago blues label Chess later in the decade. And he's had some crushing lows, struggling with drug addiction and living on the streets of Chicago for a spell in the '80s. But he rebounded in the '90s re-fashioning himself as a wise old man of garage rock. 1996's aptly titled Greasy finds Pretty Things' guitar mangler (and original Rolling Stone) Dick Taylor and vocal group the El Dorados in tow revisiting songs Williams recorded earlier in his career. Now Magazine called it, "Every bit as suggestive as his Fortune label sides...Greasy is sloppy fat and all that."
