End of Year

End of Year

Okay while some of us here at 9b are shaking off the Holiday Hangout Hangover ™ I’m looking towards the end of what has been a pretty fantastic year for new music and I’m wondering what I missed. So what records/bands/etc did we not pay enough attention to this year? What slipped by us that […]

Big Star “Complete Third” by Morgan Enos

Big Star “Complete Third” by Morgan Enos

Editor’s note: This is part of a series of pieces written for Nine Bullets by special guest artists, creators and other friends of the site. Morgan Enos fronts the bands Other Houses and Hollow Sunshine. Big Star began as a Beatlesque power-pop outfit from Memphis, TN, in 1971. By 1974, they had flamed out just as quickly […]

GUYS! Sorry I am so damned late on this. Problem is, I am a total creature of habit and when I would have normally been posting this I was sitting in a doctors office so once I missed the normal time….well, then I had to fit it in. That said….here we are! A new episode […]

Dexateens – Teenage Hallelujah

Dexateens – Teenage Hallelujah

Far and away the Dexateens are the most criminally underrated rock’n’roll band in America. I can’t think of another band that has been cranking out album after album of intense killer songs with so little notice being paid. I’m not sure what the explanation is for that. I’ve been onboard since I first heard them […]

We’re so close! Four week’s in and the show almost “feels” live. I think I’ll nail it this week. Also, lot’s a requests came in this week and I managed to mix a lot of them into the show! Look, I know last night was a bummer but you know what? Music heals and I […]

Sorry for the late publication of the last show’s playlist but I have been out dodging dead deer on I-65. Better than never though. Am I right. So, here is Wednesday’s playlist on Friday. So, have a couple of sad hours before heading out to happy hour. Below is the playlist for November 02, 2016 […]

Micah Schnabel – Marching Band (These Divided States)

Micah Schnabel – Marching Band (These Divided States)

The world is pretty goddamned ugly right now. One big upside is the amount of art that is being created as a direct result. Micah has long been a political songwriter, in fact I’d argue that from the moment he found his own artistic voice just about everything he has written was political in nature. So […]

Mickey Rickshaw- Behind The 8 Ball

Mickey Rickshaw- Behind The 8 Ball

Several years ago my band American Thread was playing out in the Boston area pretty regularly and we played a bunch of shows at John Harvard’s Brewery.  A friend of ours had a Trad Irish three piece called Paint The Corner and they would play with us most shows.  They looked like punks but played […]

Help Caleb Caudle Make A Record

Help Caleb Caudle Make A Record

  I’ve mentioned before that I love crowd funding. No offense to any of the fantastic record labels that help get the music we all love out in the world but I am very glad to see artists be directly supported by the people who love their art. Right now one of the better folks […]
