ROY CARRIER AND THE NIGHT ROCKERS "Whiskey Drinkin'  Man" Right on Rhythm  Whether recorded in concert or in the studio, the 16  tracks that make up  "Whiskey Drinkin' Man" have one thing going for them: plenty of southwest  Louisiana dancehall thrust. Veteran vocalist and  button accordionist Roy  Carrier has never been one to veer far from zydeco's  primal beat and its  party anthems. Save for a pair of cover versions  (including the novelty "My  Toot Toot"), all of the tunes here were composed by  Carrier and stick to the  blues-rooted basics. A litany of familiar themes --  liquor, lust and the  occasional lovesick lament -- inspire Carrier's  songwriting, but even the  more substantial lyrics tend to be overshadowed by  his band's boisterous  rhythmic drive. Of course, the more exuberant tunes, including the John Lee  Hooker-like "Boogie All Night," are nothing more  than open invitations to  crowd a dance floor. Carrier's band follows his  no-frills lead throughout  the recording. Guitarist Russell Gordon adds some  nice solo touches here and  there, but again it! ..it's the pumped-up combination of Carrier's squeeze  box and rhythm section  that keeps the music from flagging. -- Mike  Joyce   Appearing Friday night at Relay Town Hall in Relay,  Md., and Saturday at the  Blue Bayou Festival at Showplace Arena in Upper  Marlboro. .
