Not entirely how this album ended up on my hard drive but I am sure glad it did. Psalmships is Joshua Britton out of Pennsylvania and he is writing a brand of music he self-describes as “ghost folk.” It’s a fair assessment I’d say since Songs For A Red Bird seemed to materialize out of no where in my life and became a near obsession after listening to it once.

Once upon a time, I coined the term “Heavy Metal Americana” and a little known band out of Kentucky adopted the term and put it on a tshirt. That band, was Those Crosstown Rivals. A band that, at the time, had not gotten too much run here on ninebullets or the the radio show.

Those Crosstown Rivals first landed on my radar after the release of their debut album, Kentucky Gentlemen. An album that, to be honest, I was not too keen on. Now, many months (year?) later I went back to it to see if I was just being overly judgmental the initial times I checked out the album I’ve decided that No….I was not. In the time between Kentucky Gentlemen and Hell and Back the bands sound has matured and grown a lot more polished. In hindsight, we should have seen this coming with the song “Kentucky Woman” they had on the split 7” with Arliss Nancy. A track, mind you, that I damned near wore out on Ninebullets Radio.

If the band can prove to be consistent from album to album Hell And Back is Those Crosstown Rivals announcement that they belong to be mentioned in the same breath as Arliss Nancy and other bands of that ilk.

Hell And Back is exactly what I want from a modern southern rock record; guitars, power, cuss words, dead people and drunken nights. Not only is it Essential Listening in my opinion, it’s top 10 of the year material.

In lieu of the usual album cover at the top of this post I decided that the opening to “It Might Get Loud” was the only proper way to open this piece. Really, I could leave it at that video, post a few songs, some links and call this a win. But I think you might need to know a little more about these kids first:>

White Trash Blues Revival are Joe Bent (Skiddely-bo/Vox), Sausage Paw <---Brenn Beck of Left Lane Cruiser (Trash cans/stompin), Ando (Gutbucket Bass of Death) and Pete Dio (Keg & Cardboard box) straight out of the punk-blues mecca that it Fort Wayne, Indiana. The first thing you should have noticed is that there is not a single “real” instrument in that list up there. A skiddley-bo, is a skateboard deck with a red stripe bottle on one end, a pick up glued to it and two guitar strings strung across it. A Gutbucket Bass of Death is a washtub flipped upside down with a rope affixed to it and the top of a broomstick up high with the toneage relying on the players tension on the rope by moving the broomstick around. The rest, well…it’s pretty self-explanatory.

We all go to shows and see the generic band with all the shiny strats, all the shiny Les Pauls, all the Marshall stacks and all the overly vague lyrics that scream trying to hard. Well, the WTBR is the polar opposite of that. It’s loose. It’s sloppy. It’s primal. It’s ass raping pretense in the ass with a slide on one finger and a bottle of MD 2020 in the other hand. If you’re a fan of Hillstomp or Left Lane Cruiser, you’re already a fan of these guys. Get on this shit and blues out with your punk out.
