In an era where most of the world is floating around on laptop computers and digital social networks, there's still someone out there coughing up chunks of salt, dirt, and gravel into a microphone, and banging out the bowels of what's left of the seeds of man on a 1959 Gibson hollow body guitar. These are the rusty scrapings of resin that have come from modern times having it's way with old time blues, country, and bluegrass roots music. This is Scott H. Biram, The Dirty Old One Man Band from Austin, TX.
When you put a lethal mix of styles and genres like his together you're just asking for a potent cocktail of auditory bliss and blasphemy. Bad Ingredients, his latest libation to hit your palate this fall on Bloodshot Records, is a 13 song happy hour guaranteed to kick your ass and leave you thirsty for more. Recorded at Scott's home studio and mastered by the legendary Jerry Tubb of Terra Nova Mastering (Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Dwight Yoakam), Bad Ingredients delivers in both classic S.H.B. throat stomping style and ever-evolving as a songwriter substance. Crowd pleasing tracks like "Victory Song" and "I Want My Mojo Back" force the listener to bang down their shot glasses in time to the beat, as best they can, and sing along. While "Just Another River" and "Open Road" might just find itself into your cerebellum subconsciously while you fight the late night spins and reflect on another day lost to the night. Bad Ingredients might just cure what ails you and large doses are encouraged...pick it up at a brick and mortar or online this October 11th, 2011.
What makes a Scott H. Biram show unlike anything you've ever experienced? His live stage performance consists of a collection of vintage guitars, a couple rock guitars wired up through a wall of beat up road worn amplifiers, all accompanied by a stomp board of his own creation. The board is powered by two huge big-rig grilled subwoofers that sit directly behind him providing a powerful thump that obligates the crowd to shake their fists and their asses. His voice is driven through the slightest overdriven mics that make the vocals ride on top of his sound while blending perfectly with the rest of the instruments. Scott H. Biram is a man possessed. Why not let his dirty gospel enter your soul and join him at his First Church of the Ultimate Fanaticism...no wine, just whisky. Hallelujah.
Black Pistol Fire
Black Pistol Fire are a rock and roll duo originally from Toronto, Canada, but are now based out of Austin, Texas. Their wild and energetic rock-and-roll sound has been described as a mix of classic southern rock and garage punk, garnering comparisons to early Kings of Leon, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Black Keys, and Clutch. It's clear that the band's sound spans many different eras and subgenres, relying on a classic rock and roll sound that has been updated for our modern times.
The story begins in Waterbury, Ct in the early 90’s. Dave spent the weekends at his Dad’s house as a little kid where he listened to Lynyrd Skynyrd vinyls and hammered on the old beat up instruments his single father had in place of furniture. Dave’s song “Daddy’s Records” tells the story of his music roots, childhood, family life and moving forward as a man. The song is proof of why he got the nickname “old soul.” He always had wisdom beyond his years and a deep gratitude and love for everything and everyone around him. Inspired by the Outlaw and Alternative country greats of the past and present like Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Mearl Haggard, Jamey Johnson, Shooter Jennings, Chris Knight and Jason Boland… Dave’s songs tell stories of all the hardships and trials we go through in this life. The truth, no matter how dark, bleeds out of his songs. Dave has performed his one man acoustic shows every weekend at various bars in the greater Waterbury area since 2012. Between the frequent local radio appearances, bar gigs and charitable shows, Dave continues grow faster than most. The skeptics that say Dave’s live show doesn’t include many popular songs and is too country for the crowds he plays for… immediately get won over after the 1st set.
