The Church of the Ultimate Fanaticism:

Scott Biram is one of my Top 3 favorites. It goes: Lucero, Drive-By Truckers, Scott Hiram Biram. Scott will be playing The Orpheum Sunday night and you can come drink whiskey with me and see Scott for a mere 8 dollars.

Rock ‘n’ Roll ain’t pretty and neither is Scott H. Biram. The self proclaimed “Dirty Old One Man Band” successfully, and sometimes violently, lashes together blues, hillbilly and country precariously to raucous punk and godless metal.

Biram ain’t no dour ass singer/songwriter either, sweetly strumming songs about girls with big eyes and dusty highways. HELL NO!!! His singing, yodeling, growling, leering and brash preachin’ and hollerin’ is accompanied by sloppy riffs and licks from his 1959 Gibson guitar and pounding backbeat brought forth by his amplified left foot. The remainder of this one-man band consists of an unwieldy combination of beat-up amplifiers and old microphones strung together by a tangled mess of guitar cables.

Now, tell me that shit don’t sound like fun. Hope to see some of y’all out.

  1. Hiram Biram’s your daddy!

    Scott has to be in my top ten very easily. Live is, of course, the best way to hear his music and if you ever get the chance to see him play a roller derby you shouldn’t miss it. “I See The Light” has to be my personal favorite. Great post and I hope you enjoy the show.
