Scott H Biram – Graveyard Shift (Bloodshot)

Scott H. Biram is Austin’s dirty old one man band who delivers the gospel of the First Church of the Ultimate Fanatacism brimming with whisky and muddy holy water. Graveyard Shift, Biram’s new release on Bloodshot, sounds like a man screaming primally from the abyss (which Biram has stared into after being hit head-on by an 18-wheeler at 75 MPH on a Texas highway). This is mangled gut-bucket blues, outlaw country and punk rock conjuring a monster so hideously original and yet so….familiar. Biram channels these tunes from the musical past with his squalling ’59 Gibson electric hollow-body and thay arrive wholly original, soulful and , often, frightening as hell. The lame is cured, the blind see and shitty music is dispatched off this mortal coil.
