Love and protest CD review - Love and protest
When, exactly, did rock and roll die? There are bands (for example, J. Roddy Walston and The Business, JJ Grey and Mofro, The Felice Brothers) fighting the good fight, but in large part the Three Chords and The Truth philosophy of popular music has been co-opted by country music, then poured into its own mold: trucks, hats, getting lit, girls and not giving a damn. So, what's a band like Girls, Guns & Glory to do? Fundamentally, they are a roadhouse band. A bunch of guys that can take a »»»
Girls Guns and Glory Presents: A Tribute to Hank Williams - Live!
Most country artists have a Hank Williams Sr. tune tucked somewhere in their repertoire, a live version that normally whips the crowd into a foot-stompin', raucous mob. But an entire album of exclusively live Hank can be summarized in a single word: ambitious. And with different results, even in the hands of punk-country band Girls Guns & Glory. The Boston-area based quartet led by vocalist/guitarist Ward Hayden is carving out an impressive sound that at times ventures into manic »»»
Good Luck CD review - Good Luck
With a handle like Girls, Guns and Glory, you might expect this outfit to sound like a heavy metal band. After all, it reads like a banner that might have served as the title for an album by Motley Crue, Megadeth or any other hard rock hero. So while this Boston-based band does serve up its share of balls-out rockers, the edgier offerings are tastefully intertwined between an equal number of frayed ballads, allowing the emotions to ricochet between triumph and tragedy. Five albums on, Girls, »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: The Lil Smokies provide the perfect antidote – On a night when the world to be falling further apart thanks to coronavirus (this would be the night the NBA postponed the season), there stood The Lil Smokies to at least in some small measure save the day. The quintet is part of a generation of musicians with bluegrass as the basis, but not totally the sum of the music either.... »»»
Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music – John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia. But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
