You might be tempted to think I am an idiot, I am not. New music, and lots of it gets published every single day. I know, because a very small sliver of it arrives at my doorstep. The problem is that much of it has that ‘sameness’ about it. I like a wide range of genres, well with the exception of Rap, the race to find out who can say the word Fuck most times in a three minute song quite frankly bores me.

I like musicians that push the envelope in whatever genre they live in. Other than trying to get into the Guinness Book of Records for the use of the word ‘Fuck’. Here’s a challenge for you, who was the first musician to issue an LP that used the word? I’ll give you a clue, it was 1972, it was a British Folk Musician and BBC Radio banned the entire album because of one word used on one track.

OK, back to the plot! There is indeed new music, you just have to know where to look. A fine example is a presser I received this morning, The Hillbilly Moon Explosion  are coming to town. I don’t know a lot about them, they are part brit, part French, part Swiss, and part banned from entry into the US.

With these credentials they must be good. An album was recorded in San Diego and is due for release in the summer, there are two tracks that are out in the wild. Try em, and love em.

Sure Jackson has been done before, but never like this

More soon, I know these renegades are on tour on the west coast, I’ll update the article with details ASAP
