PLAYLIST: NINEBULLETS RADIO 06.14.2012

I am trying something new with the track listing by including the album that the songs came from. Not sure if anyone actually reads these things but I thought that might be a useful piece of information that I was removing from the official playlist when I post it here. So lemme know if that’s something you appreciate/will use.

Last week’s show turned out so good I consciously went into this show trying to duplicate it. The lesson here is that the show just needs to happen organically. It’s still a good show, I just feel like the playlist is a little forced at spots. That said, it’s about the music, not my DJ prowess and the music is top notch. I continue my unrelenting push of McDougall by reaching into his back catalog for a song that’s a must hear for fans of the Tim Barry ethos. There is also a song from Florida’s Owsley Brothers that’s all sorts of groovetastic and you never go wrong with a little Left Lane Cruiser and Rev. Peyton. Towards the end the show starts to relax and features one of my newest obsessions, The Great Unknowns. If all of this sounds like something you’d be willing to invest an hour into then put some ears on the archived stream of the show and thanks for tuning in.

ROCK REPORT: REVEREND PEYTON AND HIS BIG DAMN BAND @ JANNUS LANDING

Just to set the scene.

Some Irish-ish, Flogging Molly-ish band from Japan hits the stage first and Flogging Molly are third. Sandwiched between this was Rev. Peyton armed with his acoustic guitars, Washboard Breezy with her washboard, and Jayme Peyton on the drums, bringing their back porch brand of rocking blues. I walked into the show midway through the first opening act and the place was packed with kids dressed in green and pumping their fists to Japanese Irish fight songs and I began to worry for the good Reverend and his merry band. There was no way in hell this crowd was gonna wanna hear blues music. Not tonight. So, I began talking to the people around me in between acts. The typical conversation went like this:

“You looking forward to the next band, Reverend Peyton and His Big Damn Band?”
“Who are they?”
“An awesome three piece blues band from Tennessee.”
Grimaced face…”Blues?”
“Yep”
Even more contorted face, “What are they doing at this show?”

Oh. Jesus, I thought, I better get another drink. This could get ugly.

Oh me of little faith.

The band had the crowd wrapped around their little finger in two songs. They even moshed a little, which may surprise some of you, but Tampa will…nay HAS…moshed to They Might Be Giants. If there is a band and any sort of a crowd, a mosh pit is soon to follow…but I digress. The crowd ate them up. Breezy with her washboard and mean face was the favorite of the fella standing beside me. Personally, I loved watching Reverend with his high-waisted pants, higher stomping foot and manic guitar picking. While I didn’t bother to stick around for Flogging Molly, I can not imagine they put on a better show.

Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band – Big Damnnation

So I am sitting here watching the New Orleans Saints/Tennessee Titans game, waiting to see if Reggie Bush is gonna score enough points to beat my fantasy team or not, and I decided to type up this piece on the good Reverend Peyton. Everything about Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band screams New Orleans, except for their sound…that’s 100% pure Appalachian Blues.

“Big Damnnation” was produced by Paul Mahern and Jimbo Mathis of the Squirrel Nut Zippers and was recorded direct to analog tape with no overdubs, giving the album a live feel. All 12 tracks are band originals with the Reverend’s voice sporting a lower and gruffer sound reminiscent of the 1930s American Southern blues singer.

The band released a cd of seven gospel classics and one original on September 12 entitled The Gospel Album, which features the same direct-to-tape recording style and a minimized drum kit, featuring a kick, a cymbal, a snare and a five-gallon bucket.

Along with the music, I gotta say that the band’s myspace profile contains some of the most entertaining photo blogs I have seen in a long damn time.
