THE PINE HILL HAINTS – TO WIN OR LOSE


Hailing from Auburn, Alabama and named after the cemetery where they used to practice The Pine Hill Haints has been turning out what they call Alabama Ghost Music since 2000. AIV covered them here on 9B when he discovered them by accident as an opening act back in 2007. I have to admit I hadn’t read that piece until I searched today to see if they had been mentioned here. I discovered them by accident this week but through different circumstances. These folks didn’t seem like the usual 9B fare on first listen but the second time through the album I began to understand that they were more then a single listen could contain. While not the gothabilly vibe that AIV like they are dark in their own way and their self-defined Alabama Ghost Music is more than fitting.

Fronted by Jamie Barrier and his lovely wife (on washboard) Katie “Kat” Barrier along with Matt Bakula on washtub bass and tenor banjo, and Ben on snare drum it is apparently not uncommon for former members to show up and join the Haints on stage during shows. From traditional bluegrass sounds to tracks that seem like someone tossed some little swimmers from The Reverend Horton Heat, Buckwheat Zydeco, and Niick Cave into a test tube, grabbed a turkey baster, and impregnated Lucinda Williams they manage to not turn their ghost songs and murder ballads into shtick. To Win Or Lose has a decidedly southern flavored offering with lyrics flow through topics like figuring out how much drink it will take to rid oneself of memories of an evil lover mingling with the happy go lucky sounds of the banjo and squeeze-box leaving a body oddly upbeat after the dark poetry. It’s honestly one of the stranger albums I have come to enjoy recently. The lyrics, if you read them while listening to the music, wouldn’t seem to fit but once you slap on some headphones and give it a good listen you realize that there’s some magic there. Aside from their original work on this album they also toss in a cover of Woody Guthrie’s The Ranger’s Command rounding out and already damn fine album. But don’t take my word for it check out the tracks below.

The Pine Hill Haints – Never Gonna Die
The Pine Hill Haints – Scar
The Pine Hill Haints – How Much Poison Does It Take

After listening to this album I really want to see these guys live. I’m just sayin’…

The Rock Report: The Pine Hill Haints @ The Orpheum, Ybor City

Normally, unless I specifically went to a show to see the opening act, I do not write about them. Normally, seeing an opener that I’ve never even heard of doesn’t leave much of an impression. However, judging from the undivided attention the crowd at theOrpheum was giving them, I think I speak for most of the venue when I say the Pine Hill Haints aren’t your normal band.I missed the beginning of the Pine Hill Haints show due to the wife feeling ill and walked in in the middle of a stirring rendition of “Will the Circle Be Unbroken”. The first thing I noticed was the contraption that serves as a Bass; a washtub with a nylon rope coming out of the center that is attached to a broomstick. It looks odd, but it was more than adequate. The drummer’s kit is a single snare which he was playing with steel brushes. The bassist and drummer were rounded out by a guitar-playing singer and a girl who played everything from Mandolin to washboard, and even a handsaw at one point. The band plays a self-described style called Appalachian Ghost Music, a style whose name comes from the fact that they are playing a brand of music that they feel is dead in the modern world. As their set unraveled, the crowd stood motionless as if they were indeed staring at ghosts.

I’ve never seen an O’Death show, but I imagine the Pine Hill Haints pull of a similar vibe. For all the talk of ghost and haunting I’ve done, I don’t want you to get the impression that this was some ethereal belly-button lint picking show. For such a minimal stage setup, these guys beat the hell out of it. Jumpin’, hollerin’, and singin ‘, while a crowd who had never heard them before danced and nodded in approval. Matter of fact, the crowd liked them so much that it requested, and was granted, an encore. Everyone I spoke to after the show was utterly impressed.


If these guys come to your neck of the woods, you should go check it out, it’s a damned good time. Then, as so many others did, buy a copy of their debut disc, Ghost Dance. Taking it’s name from the Native American dance of the same name, the band does loseWeight Exercise a little of it’s awe-factor in translation from the live show, but it’s still a wonderful effort nonetheless.
