THE DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS – GO-GO BOOTS

THE DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS – GO-GO BOOTS

When I wrote about the new Lucero album last year, I posed the question of whether or not it’s fair for a band to be required to stay within the walls its fans had erected around it. Now admittedly, I am guilty as everyone else when it comes to the Truckers, and I’ll probably never […]

TOP 5: TAKEN TOO SOON…

TOP 5: TAKEN TOO SOON…

December 8, 1980 & December 8, 2004. John Lennon and Darrell “Dimebag” Abbott respectively were shot. If there is a running theme in music besides “Sex, Drugs & Rock and Roll” it’s the consistent muting of some of it’s brightest stars before their time and I thought today’s Top 5 could acknowledge that. So, today’s […]

LEFT FOOT SALLY – LADY LUCK

LEFT FOOT SALLY – LADY LUCK

I don’t know if we’ve ever talked about this on ninebullets, but even if we haven’t I doubt if it would come as a surprise that I download music. I buy a lot of music but I also download my fair share. A lot of it comes from random PR emails but there is plenty […]

LEROY POWELL & THE MESSENGERS – ATLANTIS

LEROY POWELL & THE MESSENGERS – ATLANTIS

I should have written about this album months ago but it’s difficult to get much news about Leroy unless you’re actually seeking it out. Anyhow, Atlantis is Leroy’s fourth solo album and the first with his new backup band, The Messengers. While Leroy’s first two solo albums after departing from Shooter Jenning’s backing band, The […]

GUEST POST: GOV'T MULE – MULENNIUM

Today we got another guest post from Mr. Adam Fenwick (many more of these and we’ll have to make him an official contributor) about a band he really loves that’s never received any run here on 9B despite me being a fan of the band. Anyhow, enjoy! For the last three months, I’ve had Tuesday, […]

CHASE FIFTY SIX – ALLATOONA RISING

CHASE FIFTY SIX – ALLATOONA RISING

Sometimes ninebullets can be work, albeit enjoyable work, but work nonetheless. Then there are times where it’s fun, where you get to write about a band you really think folks will like once they’ve had a chance to hear them. The first time I wrote about The Fox Hunt it was like that, same as […]

JAVI GARICA AND THE COLD COLD GROUND – SOUTHERN HORROR

JAVI GARICA AND THE COLD COLD GROUND – SOUTHERN HORROR

Take one part Texas country, one part southern rock, one part garage band mix them together with a pinch of anger and a dash of fierce independence and what you’ll get is Javi Garica and the Cold Cold Ground. The debut release from these New Braunfels boys is a two disc set, one full length […]

GUEST POST: WARREN HAYNES presents: THE BENEFIT CONCERT VOL. 3

GUEST POST: WARREN HAYNES presents: THE BENEFIT CONCERT VOL. 3

Hey guys. Sorry for no post yesterday. I was planning on doing a Top 5 but an unexpected road trip kept me on the long black ribbon all day yesterday. Our guy, Adam Fenwick, checks back in on this here Thursday morning with a review of a cd that came out this month but was […]

SWEET SIX BULLETS – SKIN, WINE AND SIN (RIYL: DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS)

SWEET SIX BULLETS – SKIN, WINE AND SIN (RIYL: DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS)

For as far out of the 9b scope the Amanda Blank album was, Sweet Six Bullets is exactly what the site was started for. On my first pass through the album I posted the following on Twitter, “Sweet Six Bullets….I love when a band takes me by surprise….” So let’s talk about them. There isn’t […]

THE MAGPIES – STRANGERS

THE MAGPIES – STRANGERS

Ever since Roger Hoover and The Whiskeyhounds became The Magpies I’ve been pretty disappointed in the musical direction the band has taken. That said, I still check out anything new they release on the off chance they might recapture that Whiskeyhounds spirit I’d so loved. So, when I saw they had released a new album, […]
