I’m in such a great mood from my Nashville trip I decided to give you, loyal reader, two for the money on this MySpace Showcase Tuesday.
The first band is the Lonesome Spurs. I liked these folks the first time I heard their song come streaming from their page and like ‘em even more after making their acquaintance in Nashville and seeing them live. Lynda Kay & Danny B. Harvey make music as though it were a spawn from Patsy Cline and Merle Travis, but kidnapped from the crib and raised up in a West Texas trailer park by Wanda Jackson. Sold hillbilly sound and snappy dressers to boot!
The second band is a new one for me. Backyard Tire Fire has a smooth groove as if Leon Russell fronted Uncle Tupelo. The twang is there fused with funk and the harmonious folk of C.S.N.Y.
Both are killer. Check ‘em out!
