KONZERT: HOPELESS JACK (USA) 24.3.2017

HOPELESS JACK - A raucous and raw element of rock & roll grounded in the roots of soul and blues. The two piece drums and guitar duo out of Reno Nevada delivers a unique and explosive sound. The bands high energy stage show paired with real and heartfelt lyrics pulls audiences out of apathetic cell phone staring and brings them along for the ride. Blistering slide guitar and danceable rhythms get people moving. Out of a background of country, blues and self-taught madness Hopeless Jack takes the shattered, dirty and discarded emotions of this life and builds them up with worn out tools, song by song. Influenced by greats such as; Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Hillstomp, Johnny Cash, Gun Club and the Gories Originally performing as a one man band, Hopeless Jack’s Haunting vocals penetrate as Jack’s edgy lyrics tell a story of a damaged man searching through his brokenness for truth.  “I try to write songs that mean something, something believable, songs that are real. Passport stamps of love, loss and anger. I believe in Rock & Roll and that it saves people. When you hear the records, when you see me play, I want you to believe me. I am here to make believers.” - Hopeless Jack Beisel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNM3T614N2A https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iT7XPCDKRXM  Eintritt: 10€ Beginn : 20.00 Uhr EInlass : 18.00 Uhr

KONZERT: DYLAN WALSHE (IRL/US) 22.4.2017

2015 war der Junge an einem Mittwoch bei uns, da ein Veranstalter seinen Auftritt in Leverkusen kurzfristig gecancelt hatte. Was für ein Glück für uns und die Leute, die an diesem Abend anwesend waren. 2 Stunden hat er sich die Seele aus dem Leib gespielt, gesungen, geklatscht...unfassbar. Weil wir das Konzert so geil fanden und aus Versehen ( ;-) ) einen Mitschnitt gemacht haben wurde es später über MuddyRoots veröffentlicht. Lange Rede kurzer Sinn: Kommt vorbei, schaut und hört ihn euch an, kauft seinen Merch. http://www.dylanwalshe.com/ Eintritt : 8€ Beginn : 20.00 Uhr Einlass : 18.00 Uhr

KONZERT: WOODY PINES (USA) 30.4.2017

TANZ IN DEN MAI

BIOGRAPHY   If you’re wondering where the music of Nashville troubadour WOODY PINES comes from, look to the streets. It was on the streets as a professional busker that Woody first cut his teeth, drawing liberally from the lost back alley anthems and scratchy old 78s of American roots music, whether country blues, jugband, hokum, or hillbilly. Heavy rollicking street performances are the key to some of today’s best roots bands, like Old Crow Medicine Show (Woody and OCMS’ Gill Landry used to tour the country in their own jugband), and they’re the key to Woody’s intensely catchy rhythms, jumpy lyrics, and wildly delirious sense of fun. Woody traveled all over the streets of this country, road testing his songs, drawing from the catchiest elements of the music he loved and adding in hopped-up vintage electrification to get that old country dancehall sound down right.   That’s why the songs on his new self-titled release WOODY PINES (released May 28 on underground label Muddy Roots Recordings) are so hot. This is gonzo folk music, the kind of raise-the-rafters, boot-shakin’ jump blues that used to be banging out of juke joints all over the South in the late 1940s, but now it’s burning into the earholes of a younger generation of Nashville kids, all looking for music with deep roots and something to hang on to.   It’s tempting to call Woody Pine’s newest music “rockabilly,” and in fact he recorded the new album at Sputnik Studios in Nashville, famous for recording rockabilly and psych-twang heroes JD McPherson, Jack White, and Sturgill Simpson. But it might be more accurate to call Woody’s new songs “hillbilly boogie;” a rarely remembered genre of American music made famous by the Delmore Brothers. Hillbilly boogie sits at the exact moment when the buzzed- out, electrified hillbilly country music of Appalachia (which itself drew heavily from country blues), first hit the sawdust-floored honky-tonks of old Nashville and Memphis. It was the moment exactly before the birth of rock ‘n’ roll. Woody writes with a wink to this critical time on songs like “Anything for Love” and “New Nashville Boogie,” drawing in modern references at will to make his points. He also dives deep into the tradition, drawing up gems like the old gangsta- folk song “Make It to the Woods” from the Mississippi Sheiks. In Woody’s music, there’s never an idea that roots music should be a recreation of an older time. Instead, he taps the vein of this music that’s still beating today, finding common ground with the old hucksters and bar-hounds who created the music in the first place.   When Woody Pines sings “when the train rolls by, I get a faceful of rain,” this isn’t some hipster dilettante twisting a faux-handlebar mustache and singing about old-timey railroads, this is a dedicated student of Woody Guthrie who used to hop freight trains to get from town to town. This is serious roots music that’s as much a way of life as an aesthetic choice. This music isn’t for dabblers; you gotta feel it in your bones. Let Woody Pines help.   http://www.woodypines.com/   Eintritt : 10€ Beginn : 20.00 Uhr Einlass : 18.00 Uhr

KONZERT: SCOTT H. BIRAM (USA) 22.6.2017

 

 

HELL YEAH!!!!  DA IST ER WIEDER.. :-) With the heart of a genuine Texas bluesman, the head (banging) of a Zappa and Lemmy disciple, and boots resting in the dust outside of town at sunrise, Scott H. Biram journeys through the harrowing human condition like no one else. A walk on the Biram side straddles the chasm between sin and redemption and The Bad Testament lands somewhere west of the Old Testament and south of an AA handbook. It’s a record of hard-grinding lost love, blues and deep, dark Americana. Scott H. Biram conjured the words and music for The Bad Testament during mad alchemical sessions at his homemade studio in Austin, TX. Through stacks of amps, spools of cable, and a prodigious collection of microphones, he spread his technical wings wide, while never losing the immediacy honed from a life on the road. He added a drum kit and rustic vocal duet to his skill set (which already includes all guitars, bass, keyboards, vocals, and percussion on the album). And strip away the one-man band eccentricity, SHB is out-writing any meeting taker on Music Row. The man writes on a razor’s edge of aggression and deftness, thoroughly contemporary but steeped in the backwaters, back porches and back alleys of our collective musical heritage. Many in the one-man band field find their groove and stay in it, but stay in a groove too long and it becomes a rut. SHB has the groove, but never falls into a rut. On “Set Me Free” and “Red Wine” the wandering country soul of Jimmie Rodgers and the laid-back cool of Merle Haggard ride well with SHB’s distorted punk; it’s the 2-sided jukebox hit at the honky-tonk behind the looking glass of CBGB’s. “Righteous Ways” and “Still Around,” mellower, but no less determined, sound right out of the Folkways canon. Speaking to eternities and charlatans, Biram’s freewheelin’ with an edgy take on the Newport Folk vibe. With its surprisingly melancholy organ and in the back of the pocket tattered soul, “Crippled & Crazy,” recalls The Band. The haunting harmonica-soaked ballad “Long Old Time” is a chilling taste of existential desolation, “It’s gonna be a long old time/ before I pay for the crime that I done.” This is one lost highwayman.  Fear not, though, Biram is still The Dirty Old One Man Band. His brand of unvarnished and unhinged aggro-roots remains as exciting as ever. “Trainwrecker” blasts down the two-laner with the breathless fervor of a redneck metal “(I’m Not Your) Stepping Stone.” Try NOT singing along in the best Nordic Doom Metal voice we all carry around buried within our darker selves. He’s downright blunt on the R-rated Boomhauer TX rant “Swift Driftin’”: “It takes a real piece of shit to be a real piece of shit/ You should really just be headed on your way.” Yet the stark acoustic guitar country blues is updated and self-aware - a profane reboot of personal heroes Leadbelly and Mississippi Fred McDowell. The instrumental “Hit the River” is a throw the devil horns slide guitar boogie right in that sweet Biram groove. And. It. Will. Not. Let. Go. It’s short, not-so-sweet, and leaves you panting for more. Scott H Biram is THE one-man band. The master of the realm. Why? Because even though he’s one man, he ain’t one thing.
