Happy Repeal Day! Today, we celebrate the 21st Amendment, which overturned the nationwide Prohibition of 1919. I'd like to think that if the Bloodshot crew was around in the 20s, you would've found us in one of the nation's speakeasies.
In honor of Repeal Day, we lift a glass and name our favorite drinking songs from these Bloodshot artists:
Jon Langford and Skull Orchard, "Pill Sailor" from Skull Orchard Revisited
"Aren't they all drinking songs?" (Touché, Nan)
Scott H Biram, "Whiskey" from Dirty Old One Man Band
The Meat Purveyors, "Liquor Store" from Someday Soon Things Will Be Much Worse
Sally Timms, "Drunk By Noon" (Handsome Family cover) from Cowboy Sally
Whitey Morgan and The 78s, "Turn Up The Bottle" from S/T
Lydia Loveless, "Jesus Was A Wino" from Indestructible Machine
Whitey Morgan and the 78s, "I Ain't Drunk" from S/T
CONTEST! If you buy ANY Waco Brothers album in an order totaling $40 or more, you'll be entered to win one of 3 Waco Brothers flasks! But hurry, this contest ends Tuesday, December 6 at 6pm CST.
To celebrate the one-year anniversary of Ha Ha Tonka's lauded sophomore album, Novel Sounds of the Nouveau South (really—just take a look at all the nice things people have said about the album), we're putting the CD and LP on sale! Already have a copy? Buy one for your dad for Father's Day! Or for your bestie for Xmas in July! But that's not all, if you buy the CD or LP from our site between now and Friday, June 18 at 5p, you'll also receive an MP3 of "12-inch, 3-speed Oscillating Fan" from the out-of-print 7''. Wait, but there's more! Everyone who purchases the CD or LP is also entered to win an autographed copy of the OOP 7''!
