I’m not sure what happened to the release of this album; officially, it was let loose on the world back in February but I’m not sure it’s been seen on this side of the Atlantic till recently. It doesn’t really matter, because this should be an album that people will be hunting down years from now. Tommy Womack is a one-off, a one man…Continue

Fronted by singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Travis Ward, Hillfolk Noir’s peculiar take on traditional acoustic mountain music is filtered through a half-century of folk, country and rock ‘n’ roll and fed by an affinity for medicine show culture and Depression-era string-band blues. The band calls it Junkerdash, which has multiple definitions up to…Continue

Their debut album, The Devil Sure is Hard to Please married wonderful musicianship with original, contemporary songs absolutely steeped in the tradition. This new album, again produced by band member…Continue

Released in America last year to some acclaim, Scotty Alan’s new solo album has recently received its UK release and this former punk rocker from Upper Peninsula, Michigan will, I’m sure, be making friends over here on the back of it. Marrying a country/folk vibe to a punkish energy, these fifteen songs chart the progress of a relationship that didn’t work out. Opening with the “goodbye” song, Scotty winds back to the days when it all looked good, finding along the way that…Continue

Wild Turkey in June 1971 was the first live band I saw and some forty one years later I am still occupying live music venues but not pretending to be older than I am!
In my early concert going years one of the bands…Continue
