Doug Walters digs himself some John Frusciante. On the Charleston singer-guitarist’s second solo release Vagabond, which hit the shelves last fall, Walters, a City Paper contributor, even named a song after the former Chili Peppers guitarist, who, quite honestly, is one of the most skillful and soulful axe men in the biz today. But with Walters' latest musical outing, Voodoo Woman from his band Torture Town, the guitarist expresses his adoration for another — Iggy Pop, or, to be more accurate, the Stooges. On the opening two tracks of Voodoo Woman, the undeniable riffery and swagger of the Stooge’s proto-punk is right there, and Walter’s does a wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am job of it too. Walters plays every instrument except for drums, which were handles by Jeff Mangan. This week, Walters celebrates the release with a gig at the Roof. James Beightol will handle bass duties while the City Paper’s Ballard Lesemann will be on drums. Atlanta-based songwriter James Hall’s dynamic Futura Bold and local rock trio L. Brown Odyssey share the bill.
