Something's Wrong/Lost Forever
LIMITED EDITION LP AND CD ARE SOLD OUT
Biram throws down some feral, amped-up Delta blues just as easily as stone cold country weepers that'll get the girls all dewy-eyed with faith and desire, and even some heavy metal field hollers—with the emphasis on holler.
Performed, recorded and produced by Scott hisself, with the notable exception of the punked-out Big Bill Broonzy tune "I Feel So Good" done with blues punk duo the Black Diamond Heavies, Something's Wrong/Lost Forever is a record rife with testifying and torment. The grungy strut of "Time Flies" and the Waylon-worthy lament of the now classic "Still Drunk, Still Crazy, Still Blue" shows that real pathos lurks beneath the brim of Scott's trucker cap, while the two-step rant of "Judgment Day" has him at his wide-eyed best. Check out the way he draws a line in piss and whiskey from the sweaty heaviness of the Delta and to dudes throwing devil horns at a metal concert in "Hard Time," or the eerie, on-his-knees lament sung with maximum distortion on Leadbelly's "Go Down Ol' Hannah."
