Willie Edwards, "Everlastin' Tears"

Police state on the rise

By the same old guys

With the same old lies

Comes as no surprise

Well it’s very plain to see

They want your liberty

Police state

Police state

Police state

Police state . . . . .

We’re trying to get Willie down here (from Vermont)  to do some live performing and to record a new album later this winter.

We’ll keep you posted about the new label.

The band is back up, and we’re doing a bunch of mostly (so far) unrecorded blistering political blues, most prominently “Private Prison Blues,” and will record two new full CDs of original material — some political, some just funny and self-mocking — over the next few months. It’ll mostly be blues, but also blues-rock, latin rock, blues-jazz, straight jazz,  New Orleans funk-blues, country rock, funk rock, straight country, and western swing. In other words, it’ll be what Gatemouth Brown, refusing to be pigeonholed, called “American Music.”

We hope to get Willie Edwards down here to record at least one new CD, and maybe two, as a way to launch the new label, along with new CDs by the Pinche Blues Band, Al Perry, Brian Hullfish, and one or two other local bands.

 

For now, check out the Pinche Blues Band site where we have all of the songs from the first two EPs up as free mp3s.

Enjoy. And stay tuned.
