PLAYLIST: NINEBULLETS RADIO 03.29.2012

Last night’s show was a little bit of a goat f*ck. There was a terrible accident on the interstate that turned my normal 35 minute drive to the station into an hour and 20 minute slow roll. So, the first 20 minutes of the show are an extended version of Ed’s Postmodern Hootenanny and aren’t […]

THURSDAY QUICK HITTERS:

THURSDAY QUICK HITTERS:

Sometimes, for whatever the reason, there are cds that I intend on writing about but end up not doing it. Be it timing, writer’s block or who knows what, they just keep getting pushed to the end of the line and eventually the tail end gets cut off. Quick Hitters is an effort to avoid […]

NINEBULLETS.NET OCTOBER 2009 BEER/PODCAST:

Well, well, well, here it is. The first themed podcast and we decided to do the dual (collab, if you will) themes of Murder Ballads and Beer. The murder ballads came from y’all’s emails and my admittedly shit memory, while the beer came from Rogue Brewery courtesy our Portland friend Lollyrae. I hope I did […]

NINEBULLETS.NET AUGUST PODCAST:

Here we are. Another month, another podcast. Can you believe it’s been 6 months? Traffic on these is improving a little and that’s raised my spirits about doing them…I know I’m supposed to be all about doing them regardless of the amount of people who listen….and I will be, just as soon as the podcast’s […]

THE SAD BASTARD BOOK CLUB – THE COLLECTED SHORT STORIES OF CARRIE ANNE CROWE

THE SAD BASTARD BOOK CLUB – THE COLLECTED SHORT STORIES OF CARRIE ANNE CROWE

I’m not sure there is a single ninebullets.net reader that will like this cd. Hell, I can’t even tell you with any degree of certainty that I like the cd, but since I can’t stop listening to it I figured I need to go ahead and write about it. The band’s story is either mundane […]

STRAWFOOT – CHASING LOCUSTS

STRAWFOOT – CHASING LOCUSTS

Strawfoot is “an angry preacher and a bunch of foul-mouthed heathens” from somewhere in St. Louis. The moment I heard the track “Damnation Way” from the Rodentia compilation I was excited almost to the point of being giddy to hear more music from them.  Within 5 minutes of hearing them for the first time I […]

DEEP BLUES FRIDAY:

DEEP BLUES FRIDAY:

Last Friday I announced the line-up of bands for this years Deep Blues Festival. Earlier this week I bought my plane tickets for Minneapolis. I tell you that so you don’t think I am just pimping the festival for some nefarious reason. I buy a ticket just like everyone else. That said, I really do […]

VARIOUS ARTISTS – RODENTIA

VARIOUS ARTISTS – RODENTIA

Normally I don’t write about compilations. Matter a fact, I don’t even listen to them.  The only other compilation I ever wrote about on here was the Hillgrass Bluebilly tribute to Hank Williams Sr. and Huddie Ledbetter, Hiram and Huddie, and just like it, it took an artist roster full of familiar bands for me […]
