NEW GASLIGHT ANTHEM VIDEO:

The Gaslight Anthem have recently released a video for “Bring It On” off their latest album, American Slang and I figured posting about it would make for a great opportunity to talk about The Horrible Crowes.

The Horrible Crowes is a new band featuring Gaslight’s singer, Brian Fallon and his buddy Ian Perkins. Apparently the album was written on buses, in hotel rooms and even a bathroom while Ian was on tour with Gaslight. The album, Elsie, is set to be released on September 6 and I, for one, can’t wait.

Anyhow, here is that new Gaslight Anthem video:

TOP 5: BANDS MOST LIKELY TO…


My Twitter and Facebook feeds were all a flutter Monday morning about The Grammys. The Black Keys won 3 Grammys and Mumford & Sons and The Avett Brothers performed on the show! Not to mention Mumford & Sons being up for Best New Artist. For a day at least, everyone was openly wondering who the next band from whatever our little niche of music is was gonna be.

So that’s this week’s Top 5. Give me your opinion on the 5 artists or bands that have the best shot at moving from this little scene we live and play in up to the bright lights of the Grammys.

Here are mine:

Gaslight Anthem: They’re one of those “love em or hate em” bands but the simple fact is that they have the polish, the hooks and the looks.

The Gaslight Anthem – The 59 Sound

Lucero: They’re almost the anti-Gaslight but what they lack in polish they make up for in substance. These guys have the songs, have put in the work and if the ever growing crowds have proven anything, they have mass appeal too.

Lucero – What Are You Willing To Lose

Glossary: These guys are almost an amalgam of Lucero and Gaslight. Every time I play their new album for someone, I end up burning a copy for them (sorry Glossies, but it’s the truth). If the country still had any real DJ’s outside of community radio these guys would be getting tons of airplay right now.

Glossary – Save Your Money For The Weekend

Whitey Morgan and The 78’s: If country music radio had any balls or if country music radio listeners actually cared about music these dudes would be huge already. The nashville country music scene and fan is dying for something worthwhile and these guys supply it without asking those pop country ears to try to hard.

Whitey Morgan and the 78’s – Bad News

Old Crow Medicine Show: Watching Mumford & Sons and The Avett Brothers actually perform on the Grammy stage while Bob Dylan tried to sing through some snot goober he had lodged mid-throat makes Old Crow the most obvious in this list.

Old Crow Medicine Show – My Good Gal

So. There you go. What are your 5?
Also, anyone else notice how much the singer of Mumford & Sons looked like Tim Tebow in the Grammy performance?

FRANK TURNER – THE ROCK AND ROLL EP


LOL. The other day I said it was ninebullets.net policy not to write about EP’s, only to then write about an EP. Well I am gonna follow that up by, less than a week later, writing about another EP. I mean, wtf is policy for if it’s not to be blatantly disregarded, right?

Anyhow, Frank Turner was someone whose name I read and heard a lot, but whose music I’d never heard. Matter of fact, it reached a point where I was hearing his name so much and hearing his music so little that I began to wonder if it was a case of the reality not matching the hype. When I saw that he was opening up the Lucero/Social Distortion tour I decided that I was gonna avoid listening to any of his recorded material and let his live show be my initial point of reference.

He took the stage that night and opened with a song I disliked so much that by the end of it I had moved from the front of the venue to the very back. I was lost, and it was gonna take something pretty epic to win me back. Frank and his band took that challenge and pretty much maintained awesome for the remainder of their set. By the end of the third song I was back in the front, and somewhere in the middle of the set I was tweeting about how Frank Turner is the perfect mix of Tim Barry and The Gaslight Anthem. Was I drunk? Well, of course, it was a Lucero show, but the comparison has held up under the careful examination of this here EP.

Now I’ll be honest, after that show my intent was to starting acquiring Frank Turner albums like a dog does fleas, but it just hasn’t happened. That said, this EP has reignited that fire. As an added bonus, only one song on the EP will appear on the new album, which is due sometime in the future.

Frank Turner – I Still Believe
Frank Turner – To Absent Friend

ARLISS NANCY – TRUCKSTOP ROSES


It’s not very often I write about EP’s. Matter a fact, it’s sort of ninebullets policy NOT to write about EP’s but this EP from Arliss Nancy begs to be written about.

Arliss Nancy come out of Colorado and it was our good buddie Virgil from Colorado that brought these guys to our attention (many many thanks). Soundwise, some folks call them a country/rock band but I really don’t hear it. To me, they’re a perfect blend of the raw pure rock fury of Two Cow Garage and the polished retrospect of The Gaslight Anthem.

You heard them on the podcast, now check out a few more tracks.

Arliss Nancy – Paul Revere

NINEBULLETS.NET APRIL PODCAST: ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY EDITION:


Well. I’ll be a motherfucker. I never expected to still be doing these 12 months after the first one but here we are. Furthermore, I feel as though they are an integral part of the site now days. For some reason, I don’t really care to much about the stats for the podcast but today I took a peek at them and according to the stats there are 2500 subscribers to this fucker! I don’t know if that’s a lot or a pathetic number in podcast world but I am pretty sure it’s more people than the average Rays game gets. I hope it’s 5000 by this time next year. With that said, let’s talk about this month’s podcast.

For the one year anniversary I’ve brought y’all, what I feel like, is the best podcast to date from a production standpoint….and musically it’s pretty friggin’ stellar to. I open it with a small collection of happy birthday tracks before settling into a show full of brand new material. We got brand new tracks from The Black Keys, American Aquarium, Red Clay River, I Can Lick Any Sonofabitch In The House, Gaslight Anthem and The Morning Pages. Also, in celebration of our birthday, we’re bringing you the best give away the podcast has had to date but to know about that you’re gonna have to actually listen to the damn thing. Another thing that was super cool about this month’s podcast is that there were actually requests from twitter and facebook that ended up getting played. If you have something you wanna hear played follow me on Facebook or Twitter and make a request when I solicit them next month.

As always, below you’ll find the track listing for the show. Please tell your friends and Facebook/Twitter followers about it, I’ll greatly appreciate it.
