the Goddamn Gallows, Jayke Orvis, the Strikers, James Hunnicutt & Big Buck Hunte
Psychobilly? Punk? Americana? How about just a damn good time! The Goddamn Gallows are hands down one of the hardest working bands in America. They have taken their blend of Rock'n'Roll from coast to coast numerous times and have built themselves a very dedicated following. A party band and one that you should not ignore! The next generation of "Roots Music Revivalists" are drawing inspiration from bands like Fear and on the other end of the spectrum, bands like Bill Monroe & His Bluegrass Boys. This leaves a lot of middle ground to mold into something truly original. Jayke Orvis of Milwaukee Wisconsin is indeed a pioneer and a strong spoke in the wheel of the next generation of "Roots" musicians. He clearly represents his capabilities on his new album "It's All Been Said" Orvis has created an album that will warrant respect from Punks to Pickers. A founding member of The .357 String Band, a current member of the Goddamn Gallows & one hell of an original talent, Jayke Orvis is ahead of his time even though he plays timeless music. The songs he has written are all articles of the heart, he exposes himself on this album as a fragile, troubled soul. His depictions of love are raw and blue, the pages of his life are littered throughout this album. When he wrote it, I doubt very much that he was trying to come up with a concept or make a statement. Jayke Orvis is an honest writer and he makes real music. With a million regurgitated efforts, copy cats & billy musicians, "Roots Music suffers from over-saturation these days, thank god someone's doing it up right. James Hunnicutt is one of the few artists I know that can take the stage alone and get your strict attention immediately. When James plays music he digs deep and pulls out some kind of hellfire. Hunnicutt's songwriting is compelled by the gray area right between love and pain. That mans voice is almost surreal. He has been pigeonholed as a retro rocker, but that might be one percent of what encapsulates James Hunnicutt. His guitar playing ability and vocal range are in a league of there own. James leaves no stone unturned when he pines for musical inspiration, most of the greats never did. His music style is timeless and so is the man. His writings are honest and are only an extension of his heart and hand. Hunnicutt is a kind, humble and good natured being. If you are his friend, you are blessed. His depth is infinite and he is just getting warmed up. Only time stands between us and what will be some of the most memorable songs of our generation. Hailing from San Diego California, The Strikers sound is a mixture of bands like Motorhead, Gene Vincent, and the Misfits. Joey (guitar/lead vocals) and longtime friend Donovan (drums) were tired of trying to force their musical styles into bands that did not share their vision. They began writing songs for a straight forward rock band that would not compromise its sound for anyone. Almost by luck they found Rob (upright bass/backing vocals) who also shared their vision. The trio began writing and performing, mixing their own, very different, musical styles into one aggressive "kick-in-the-neck rock n' roll band". "Listen up stupid cause we've been here for years" are the first line of lyrics in the song "Big Buck Huntin'" and I don't think it could have been stated better. Big Buck Hunter and The Pros have been spreading their combination of southern charm and white trash gospel across this great land of ours for years (about ten to be exact). Starting out as a quartet made up of life long friends Wyatt Powers, Dick Seas, Ray Cyst and Buck Hunter The Pros set out to make their mark on this musical roadmap to a hell called rock and roll. Born and bread in the dead center in the buckle of the bible belt, Buck and the Pros terrorized the USA with fierce live performances and controversial shows making a reputation for themselves as "the band you don't want to find yourself alone in the woods with". Of course the hard livin' and big rockin wasn't for everyone and in 2002 Ray left the band to pursue a career as a chainsaw artist (he makes sculptures of bison and bears out of tree trunks) leaving the band to carry on as a Power Trio. Hailed by most as the common mans band they sing about topics as diverse as women, booze, cars, hunting (of course) and just plain blowin off steam and havin fun. As Buck put it in an interview "we would rather have a (pabst) blue ribbon than a gold medal any day".
