Posted by on January 26, 2013 with No Commentsas

bexStrong vocals and seriously good musicianship inhabit The House of Mercy from the first track to the last. It’s a combination of up-tempo blues and Americana, with a toe or two dipped into the world of gospel.There’s a pretty impressive line-up of musicians on this album with Bex. Legendary dobro master BJ Cole, Jake the Bass from Hayseed Dixie (worked with them last year at Cropredy festival and they were monster good,)The Reno Brothers (Don Wayne and Dale), harmonica maestro Steve Lockwood, fiddle queen Eileen Healy, Nashville blues artist Brigitte De Meyer, gospel singer Shola Adegoraye, keyboard man Toby Baker, bassists Barry Payne, Jake Byers (of Hayseed Dixie) and Gary Choules, perussionist Danny Bryan, drummer Crispin Taylor, banjo man Don Wayne and a certain Barry Marshall-Everitt pops up on harmonica – he of The House of Mercy radio show and Bex’s husband.

Bed Wettin’ Bad Boys – Ready for Boredom (2013)

Posted by on January 26, 2013 with No Commentsas

bedSydney’s Bed Wettin’ Bad Boys are definitely a rock band, and listening to Ready For Boredom, there’s no disputing they’ve heard a lot of it.These guys have gotten better and better since they first started pushing their gear to shows in shopping trolleys a few years ago. It’s well played, heartfelt and smart. A mix of stuff like the Replacements, Faces, Husker Du, Thin Lizzy can be heard but they cross it with a charming awkwardness and worrying about their future a lot.

Even with proper introduction, live or from the band’s two CDs, you might think the same, only these locals are blazing a path through Downtown streets to the country-fried heart of Austin.Rampa Head, quick turnaround to 2011′s Batholith, is a lightning-fast trip down dirt roads, opener Way Downtown a banjo-plucked cautionary anthem originally by Doc Watson concerning the trouble one can find in city centers. Whiskey Shivers has a lot to say about the freewheeling, trouble-free lifestyle.
