If there’s a group putting out better ’70s-sounding power pop records than Gentleman Jesse and His Men, I haven’t heard ’em. “Got the Wrong Man,” is but the latest in a string of spot-on period rock pieces by the Atlanta-based band which follow in the grand tradition of artists like The Jam, Nick Lowe, Elvis Costello, and Joe Jackson. They’ve got the style. They’ve got the hooks and the melody. And, whether they wanted them or not, they’ve even got the girl problems.
Gentleman Jesse’s “Got the Wrong Man” 7″ single is out now on Hozac Records.
