Episode 46: aired 11.17.2011


I’ll tell y’all what, when you do a monthly podcast you really begin to appreciate how short a month is. It’s like you just finished the last podcast when you realize you only have 5 days left before the next one is due. This is also the first podcast I ever made without the use of any beer or whiskey. Outside of there being no slurring by the end of it, I don’t really notice much of a difference. Lemme know if you do.

This month’s show features a pretty good balance between ninebullets regulars such as Biram, The Truckers, Austin Lucas and Mat D and relative newcomers you may not have heard of if you don’t read ninebullets such as Back Row Baptists, Reverend Deadeye and The Maldives. In between all of those we dropped some artists that have yet to be featured at all in 9b (though they will in the coming month’s) like Root Jack, The Sadies and Tin Horn Prayer. All in all, I think the whole set turned out really fantastic and I bet an hour from now you’ll agree with me.

If you enjoy this month’s please tell your Facebook and Twitter followers about it, I’ll greatly appreciate it.

Coming from the anti-folk scene of the ’90’s, Dan Bern has been crafting acoustic (mostly) folk music, with lyrics that shine a light on his dry wit and biting social commentary, for over 10 years now. Over those 10+ years, Bernstein has managed to prove that this lyric off his debut cd, Dog Boy Van, “and if you’re gonna put me in a box, make sure it’s a big box, with lots of windows and a door for me to walk through” was more a mission statement than a mere lyric.

Having spent the last few years doing children’s albums, Dan has finally put out something for the big kids in the form of his first ever live album. While I normally scoff at live recordings as a quick way to make a buck, let’s be real, music ain’t ever really made Dan a buck, and I don’t suspect it’ll start with Live In Los Angeles, which is a shame, ‘cause it offers some really interesting takes on some Dan Bern staples.

Many years ago I tried to introduce the 9B readership to Dan Bern with the following, “Dan Bern sounds a lot like Bob Dylan. There, I said it…it is done…now let’s move on. I imagine Dan Bern feels the same way. One of my favorite Dan Bern quotes comes from him being asked about the similarity between him and Dylan he replied, “I guess Bob Dylan was sort of the Dan Bern of the ’60’s“….” In hindsight, I should have just waited for Live In Los Angeles to come out, as Dan has provided a much better intro to himself than I ever could have provided. Covering tracks from his entire discography, yet omitting some of his biggest “hits”, Dan has left you plenty more to discover should you start digging into his extensive back catalogue. Something I would suggest you do and you can start with Live In Los Angeles. At $9.00 for 18 tracks, it’s hardly like you’re taking a huge risk.

Jim Rome

There’s a woot off today and it looks like I am just gonna be doing some rapid fire posts about songs while I wait for the next item….Hey, it beats shit out of working.

I am a sports fan and like millions of other sports fans out there I listen to sports talk radio. Anyone who listens to sports talk radio knows who Jim Rome is and either loves him or hates him. I used to (5 years ago or so) love his show but over time the schtick grew tired and the whole thing started to bore me. Now a days I only listen on the smack-off or if there is an interesting fill-in host. I was putzing around on the internets and stumbled across a song Dan Bern did about ol’ Romey. It ain’t a great song or anything just something fellow sports talk listeners might enjoy.

Dan Bern – Jim Rome

ninebullets.net loves Dan Bern. Here are three tracks that highlight Dan’s odd quirky and yet totally awesome songwriting skills:

Dan Bern – Alaska Highway
Dan Bern – Estelle
Dan Bern – Jerusalem

I need to go check that woot-off…

an unreleased Dan Bern track I've been digging

Today was a bear at work with meetings and site inspections and all sorts of other misery that I plan on forgetting with the aid of whiskey the moment I finish this here post.

Dan Bern recently posted an absolutely wonderful new “unreleased” song on his myspace site. Personally, I have not been able to listen to it enough. You can listen to it here or go get a higher quality version at his myspace site.

Dan Bern – Witness

In other news: The Lightning are gonna manage to survive their six game road trip into Canada with a .500 record at worst and possibly 4-2 if they can crush the hapless and degenerate Maple Leafs tonight. Tied @ 1 after 1 period. GO BOLTS!

Did you know SxSW was going on? Descent coverage here.

I saw Black Snake Moan over the weekend. Totally Awesome! Great music. Check it out if you get a chance. Hey, it’ll give the 300 fever time to die down a little.

One last thing. Kenny Wayne Shepherd tour dates started popping up on his web site. Two dates in my area but at 38 dollars a ticket I dunno how I am gonna make it. That new cd of his is still getting major play in the Autopsy household though.

See y’all tomorrow. I am about to listen to some more hockey and kill therest of this bottle of Beam.

edit: Boyle scores on a short handed break away….2-1 Bolts.
