INTRO: AUSTIN LUCAS

INTRO: AUSTIN LUCAS

With Austin Lucas’s Collection coming out this week it’s time for an Intro. For your listening pleasure 9B presents: Put The Needle Down (an Intro to Austin Lucas). For someone who’s only been around for a little while Austin has quite a few records under his belt. For the intro I think I covered everything […]

INTRO: COODER GRAW

INTRO: COODER GRAW

Today I realized I had not done an intro in quite some time and it vexed me. I promised you folk some more Texas bands and I need to get off my ass and take care of that. So here’s an intro to a, sadly, defunct Texas band known as “Cooder Graw”. I saw these […]

THE RAYS TRY TO STAY ALIVE TONIGHT…

THE RAYS TRY TO STAY ALIVE TONIGHT…

Game 5.33 tonight…the rays got 3 innings to win or start setting tee times. No matter what happens at least we don’t have to live in Philadelphia. I saw this on myspace today and found it hilarious: PAUL BROGAN – MLB WORLD SERIES RAP I had remove the video cause I could not figure out […]

Peace, Love and Hard Liquor:

Peace, Love and Hard Liquor:

Billy Bob Thornton and Matt Groening love him. Hank III has his face tatted onto his arm. Marty Stuart introduced him as his illegitimate brother at the Ryman. Tom Petty once came backstage to ask him how he gets his “sound” and the Rolling Stones once invited him to participate in a soundcheck session and […]

Introducing: Laura Love

Introducing: Laura Love

I close out the trifecta of female fronted bands with my favorite; Laura Love. I first heard Laura via my local community radio station‘s morning drive show. They were playing the song I Am Wondering on a daily basis and the more I heard it the more I wanted to hear it. Eventually I made […]

Alela Diane – The Pirate's Gospel

Alela Diane – The Pirate's Gospel

When left to my own vices I don’t listen to many bands fronted by women. No real reason for it. As Dan Bern says in Chick Singers, “it’s just guys I hear the most.” So, if a cd arrives that is by an unfamiliar female singer, it will get pushed aside in favor of other, […]

Bob Frank & John Murry – World Without End

Bob Frank & John Murry – World Without End

Okay, the moment I read the Miles of Music description of this cd I wanted to like it. I mean, look at it: Ten grisly tales based on historical deaths. Bob Frank and John Murry, who co-penned the tracks, have weaved together a haunting folk-country collection of murder ballads. The tales are not for the […]

Introducing: Sol.illaquists of Sound

Introducing: Sol.illaquists of Sound

If sound is essentially a movement, ultimately the fate of the movement lies within me – Tony CombsDid you know the Black Eyed Peas before Fergie? Sellout is a term I try to avoid. Instead, I point to the moment bands start to suck. Fergie was B.E.P.’s fonzie moment. If you long for the B.E.P. […]

The Black Diamond Heavies – Every Damn Time

The Black Diamond Heavies – Every Damn Time

Last week we talked Jawbone. This week I would like to talk to you about a lo-fi blues outfit that goes by the name The Black Diamond Heavies. Recently I requested the Radio Moscow cd from Alive Records and they sent the BDH disc along with it. I really did not know much about the […]

Introducing: The Wells

Introducing: The Wells

Well what do you know. Another week….another piece on a band from Ohio. There really must be something in the water up there. If I feature many more Ohio bands on here I think I’m gonna have to give Ohio it’s own category in wordpress. Hailing from Columbus, The Wells are Robert Loss (vocals), Andy […]
