It’s hard to precisely classify Purple Hearse into a genre, but it wouldn’t be inaccurate to describe it as two buds playing really heavy rock and having a good time doing it. Former band mates in the Dames, Tony Bennett and Ian Prince debuted this project last year during Homegrown’s new band showcase and have had a bit of a hiatus since, save for one show last November. But it’s certainly worked as a vehicle for the two’s musical chemistry to reemerge, in an improvised fashion, with Prince back on his throne and Bennett belting out brutal bass riffs.
