It’s easy enough to describe Lee Bains
III & the Glory Fires in strictly musical terms. Hailing from
Birmingham, Ala., former Dexateens guitarist Bains and his rip-roaring
band of Dixie brothers scream through their sophomore album, Dereconstructed,
with the ferocity of a Punk-fueled Drive-By Truckers, informed by early
Rolling Stones, snotty ’60s Garage dervishes like The Standells and The
Shadows of Knight and ’70s swaggermeisters like The Dictators, with a
healthy dash of Southern Gospel passion.
