Only Two and a Half Days Until Monday

hoboes_wiki_hotel_de_gink_barber

I figured I’d share a little with you today. I don’t have any great words of wisdom, hell I’m barely treading water at this point, but I’ve been mulling over a playlist for a while and I put it together when I was supposed to be working this morning. So here’s a little something to help get you through today, or maybe not…

TRIBUTE TO DEVON STUART

Last weekend, Gainesville said see you later to one of the town’s best songwriters, Devon Stuart, who, after kicking ass for fourteen years is moving up to New York. Friends and fans gathered at The Bull and played over an hour’s worth of Devon’s songs, from Takers classics to ne’er-recorded Snakehealers stuff and a bunch of others that show how prolific and sharp the man truly is. The concert was captured on video by Thunderbandmate Eric Atria and posted to Youtube for all to share in the farewell. No single songwriter defined my time in Florida better than this guy; I very literally became myself while listening to these songs live and in my room; and they’re also so fun. So, to everyone involved in this concert, thank you. Rock on, Devon.

ADULT BOYS THUNDERBAND – ABDUCTED AGAIN

abtb-abducted again

I think I remember the night Adult Boys Thunderband (Michael Claytor and Devon Stuart and Eric Atria) debuted the song “Abducted Again.” “We’re going to be the only country band that sings exclusively about aliens,” Devon claimed. I later asked him if he was challenging Armchair Martian. “They’re more punk,” he defended. Fair enough. So, whether or not you count Armchair Martian as country or count God and The Devil as extraterrestrials, Adult Boys Thunderband preaches a sharp frontier gospel that you oughta hear.

Abducted Again features re-recordings of a few songs from their 2012 debut, some great new originals (especially “She Gets Her Way”), and three well-worked covers. The first cover is “Juicy” by Notorious B.I.G.–I’ll leave it up to y’all to decide if this one is a hick-hop cash-grab or if it’s the Adult Boys goofily probing a song from when they were Child Boys. The second is “Her and Cigarettes” by Cheap Girls, for which the country treatment really underscores how powerful the chord changes are in this song. It was always a great Cheap Girls song; hearing it re-imagined here argues well for its eventual place alongside “England Belongs to Me” and “Pints of Guinness Make You Strong” at [my fantasy] bonfires. The third is the traditional “Mountain Dew,” a showcase for the band’s chops.

Their originals are every bit as strong, of course–you recognize the songwriters we’re talking about. Get in the good graces of the universe and learn our future intergalactic anthems, the hymns of honkytonk Helios, Extra-terrestrial Listening.
