When we asked if Scott H Biram had anything cool to offer up as a grand prize for the random drawing of folks who pre-ordered his new album, he came through in spades. He sent us a gen-u-ine autographed bullhorn he's used on stage.
And the winner is: Kyle Gunning of Kewanee IL!
He can now annoy his neighbors with style and pride! Thanks all who pre-ordered.
GP has gathered a few songs that were originally released digitally and put them on a shiny CD for those among his fans who might be technologically challanged (I say that without judgment, as I am one of them). It's called Five Loose Screws and HERE's a great summation of the project from GP himself.
Act fast, it's only available from him and us. Us and him. Whatever.
Lydia swung by the Daytrotter studio a couple of months ago and recorded a set. They put it up live today.
I think they liked it:
"She gives us some of these farewells and some of the spicy interludes the way we never get to see them unless they're happening to us for real. They are blunt and the cut to the chase. They are stories that male songwriters would pretty up, but Loveless would be the first to admit that she'd never pussy out like that. She hits us with it all and it leaves that sweet sting, all while still settling in like something that used to be written and played all the time in old Nashville." - Daytrotter

We are digging the new Ryan Adams album Ashes and Fire, and so are a lot of others it would seem. We're also seeing lots of comparisons to his classic solo debut Heartbreaker that we released many moons ago.
Accordingly, we're trying to encourage conversion to the Heartbreaker scene with a series of cool indie retailers who have the album on sale for the paltry price of $9.99. Thru November. Check 'em out and support your local indie!

Lots happening in the DEX ROMWEBER DUO camp, so we thought we'd give you a snazzy biz school bullet point summation. That's the way we operate around here.
»NEW TOUR: Dex and his sis hit the road with punk legends THE MEAT PUPPETS at the end of October for a series of dates up the east coast. Don't miss this dream double bill! Check the dates HERE
»NEW RELEASE: Well, it's an new RE-release of Dex's SEMINAL Flat Duo Jets LP Go Go Harlem Baby.
Some of you may remember Jack White dropping the needle on the Jets’ version of “Froggy Went a Courtin’” in the “It Might Get Loud” doc as an indicator of his early influences. Maybe you remember the White Stripes covering “You Belong to Me” or “Apple Blossom Time” in their live performances. Those songs, as well as all the rest featured on Go Go Harlem Baby are genuinely important in the pantheon of American music.
Pick it up HERE while we have them in stock!
On the heels of the release of their Bloodshot debut, Want More, post-soul evangelists JC Brooks And The Uptown Sound virtually took over the Chicago airwaves today with morning appearances on Chicago Public Radio's "848" and ABC 7's "Windy City Live." If you didn't get to catch the broadcasts, never fear! Listen to the 848 appearance here, and watch the WCL performance here!
If you're a fan of the FX show Sons of Anarchy, you may have recognized Scott H Biram's "Still Drunk, Still Crazy, Still Blue" playing during a very pivotal scene in last night's episode (there will be another SHB song on SOA in next week's new ep, as well).
It's not the first time a Bloodshot band has been featured on SOA — Check out this Songs of Anarchy playlist we put together over on Spotify, which features songs from Biram, Waco Brothers, Whitey Morgan and The 78s, Justin Townes Earle and Deadstring Brothers that have all appeared on previous episodes of SOA.
