Legendary Shack Shakers Line Up Shake Up

As per a post from the Legendary Shack Shakers MySpace page and on the fine NineBullets.net blog there seems to be a line up change for the LSS.

Ladies and gentlemen,

As our good buddy David Lee is currently tearing up his bicycling career all over the world, please meet the NEW guitarist for the Legendary Shack Shakers: Duane Denison.

Duane first came to public notice through his work with Chicago indie rock icons The Jesus Lizard. But he has also worked with a wide variety of internationally acclaimed artists including Hank Williams III, Mike Patton/Tomahawk, Bobby Bare, the Silver Jews and Firewater.

Duane’s style is synonymous with innovation, technique and taste. His move to Nashville a few years ago has allowed him to collaborate with several local, country-fried musicians. But only now will he be allowed to push the envelope and blur the lines between both the roots and Indie Rock worlds.

Strap yourself in and get ready for the NEXT chapter of the Legendary Shack Shakers!

Colonel JD Wilkes in Stay Thirsty Media

Stay Thirsty Media has a great interview with the Legendary Shack Shakers front man Colonel JD Wilkes. It it the Colonel dicusses his new movie Seven Signs, and the latest LSS release “Swamp Blood.” A sample:

Do you feel like you are becoming more popular in the mainstream media?

JD: Yeah, I feel like we’re sort of maintaining. We’re sort of a staple on the scene that people can rely on. You know we never got a major label deal, so we couldn’t really coast on that momentum. We had to build our own momentum by creating the legend that’s in our name. We have to toot out own horn more. We have to work harder, tour harder, scream louder because we don’t have big bucks behind us. We just have a lot of road miles and blood and guts and sweat invested in this , that’s what drives us. That’s what makes us more authentic . That’s what gives us more credibility than some flash in the pan, you know, emo band that here today gone tomorrow . We plan to age with this thing as we go and it will morph into who knows what the next record, cause it’s a living, breathing thing, like the Constitution of the United States. It’s a living document. It’s alive!
