WAYNE "THE TRAIN" HANCOCK – VIPER OF MELODY

I figured there would be no better segue from Dale Watson than the new Wayne “the train” Hancock album. Now, to be honest, most of my Hancock knowledge has been gleaned from the Hank III fan base and up until Viper of Melody I’d never owned any of his cds. That’s due to change.

Much like Watson, Wayne makes no effort to intermingle genres, he just pens Texas juke-joint country swing music and he does a damned good job of it.

Now sometimes with ninebullets I find myself feeling the need to put more words in a post. More description. More back story. Sometimes though, in hindsight, I feel as if I muddied the waters more than anything and I *will not* do that to this album. I’m gonna post three songs and they’ll describe and define this album better than words ever could. So, check out this ex-Marine outta Austin, Texas.

Readers: What album should I buy next?

Wayne Hancock – Jump Blues
Wayne Hancock – Throwin’ Away My Money
Wayne Hancock – Working at Working

Wayne Hancock’s Official Site, Wayne Hancock on myspace, Buy Viper of Melody

EDIT: Turns out today in Wayne’s birthday. Happy Birthday!

  1. All the Wayne records are great but ‘Thunderstorms & Neon Signs” plus ‘A-Town Blues’ are essential.
