REVISITED: POSSESSED BY PAUL JAMES – FEED THE FAMILY

REVISITED: POSSESSED BY PAUL JAMES – FEED THE FAMILY

I wanted to revisit this post today because it was just announced the the album won the Independent Music Awards award for Best Alt-Country Album Of 2010 and I felt that should earn it a rerun for those that missed it the first time. One time I said something about Possessed By Paul James and […]

GUEST POST: T-MODEL FORD & GRAVELROAD – TALEDRAGGER

GUEST POST: T-MODEL FORD & GRAVELROAD – TALEDRAGGER

Autopsy IV is on his annual pilgrimage to strap a board to the bottom of his feet and slide down mountains. While he is away 9B will feature a collection of guest posts. Today’s post comes from our good buddy Chris Green. I’m sure that a lot of ninebullets.net readers are familiar with the legendary […]

POSSESSED BY PAUL JAMES – FEED THE FAMILY

The last time I wrote about Possessed By Paul James I was relatively sure no one outside of my little Deep Blues circle had any idea who he was. Flash forward a couple of years and a stint on the last Revival Tour, and people on my alt.country/punk-folk circle have at least heard of him […]

RED CLAY RIVER -COVER OUR FACES WITH SOOT AND DREAMS

RED CLAY RIVER -COVER OUR FACES WITH SOOT AND DREAMS

Red Clay River proudly comes out of Roanoke, Virgina and could very well be one of the most popular bands ever prior to releasing a full length album. My Red Clay River experience came at Deep Blues Festival ’09. My buddy from here in Florida had already tipped me off about them and made me […]

R.I.P. DEEP BLUES FESTIVAL:

R.I.P. DEEP BLUES FESTIVAL:

After 4 years, 200+ bands, mounting debt and plenty of rain storms Chris Johnson announced yesterday that he would no longer be doing the Deep Blues Festival. I can’t say I am really all that surprised, the festival was always an ambitious undertaking that at times seemed to feature more band members than actual paid […]

AUTOPSY IV'S FAVORITE 20 ALBUMS OF 2009 (today):

Well, I guess it’s my turn. Kasey and RSV have already dropped their faves of the year (here and here) on y’all, so there’s just no avoiding it for me now. This year was particularly difficult due to the sheer amount of great music that came out, and had I made this list tomorrow it […]

THE ROCK REPORT: SLIM CESSNA'S AUTO CLUB

THE ROCK REPORT: SLIM CESSNA'S AUTO CLUB

To be honest, I was a little torn. I mean, I’d flown up for the Deep Blues Festival and I’d done a shit ton of hype for it, too, so to abandon one night of it to take a taxi to St. Paul to see Slim Cessna’s Auto Club seemed kind of wrong.  However, as […]

THE ROCK REPORT – DEEP BLUES FESTIVAL

THE ROCK REPORT – DEEP BLUES FESTIVAL

It’s taken me quite some time to get around to writing this recap. Personally, I find that when writing about festivals it’s best to marinate on them for a while after they’re over. This lets the truly enjoyable moments rise to the top, and such is the case with the Deep Blues Festival. My personal […]

Well. We’ve arrived in Minnesota and caught Restauvant, Left Lane Cruiser and Radio Moscow at the opening night of the Deep Blues Festival. I am gonna have some guest posts for y’all over the next few days and I thought, “Why not start it off with someone from Minnesota?”. Enter Neil Smith to add a […]
