We’ve been working our proverbial asses off…PROMISE!
So, now that you’re here, we have a quorum…first order of business:
ALBUM LAUNCH! We’re throwing a combination album launch and Junior Kimbrough birthday party on July 31st. Junior’s 80th birthday would have been this July 28th, and his oldest son David Kimbrough Jr will be coming down to headline the celebrations, we’ll of course be playing as well as our good buddy CW Ayon, and some new friends The Black Squeeze. The Black Squeeze are a Black Keys tribute band and they will be playing the BK’s album “Chulahoma” in it’s entirety. I would imagine IT WILL BE A DAMNED HOOT! Only hiccup so far is the venue, we’ve had some flaky folks pull some flaky sh*t on us but now it’s looking like it’ll happen at either Victory Grill or TC’s Lounge up in Austin. Ought to have it NAILED DOWN by the end of this weekend. GOD WILLING!
(Clears throat, takes sip of delicious water) Second order of business:
NEXT ALBUM: “40 Nickels For A Bag Of Chips”. Joe and I have been dusting off some of the old tunes that we didn’t record for “Sound Like Somethin Fell Off The House” as well as working up the new’uns. I have a feeling the 40 Nickel album will have a “Damned Stompy” feel to it. “Shakin The House Here Boss!” as they might say in Cool Hand Luke. We’ve taken some of the improvised music from the Juke Joint Fest gig and structuralized it a bit so it’ll resemble actual songs instead of a 5 hour jam!
Once the CD is officially released we are going to start gigging aggressively again, playing whenever and where ever we can/want to. So hope to see y’all on the 31st, bring your stompin shoes, party likker, and impure thoughts! In the meantime, please enjoy the tune we did with Watermelon Slim at the Juke Joint Festival (click the link below). Sure appreciate y’all!
