Jason and The Scorchers
A trip to my past....NO, a trip to my present and future. That's what I
got watching JASON and THE SCORCHERS at THE SHED (part of Smoky Mnt.
Harley Davidson) in Maryville, Tn. this past Friday night.
This band and Ole Skip go WAY back. I was watching them in the early 1980's as they played several different venues on "The Strip" at the University
The sound...COWPUNK, or as it is now know; PSYCHOBILLY.
JASON and THE NASHVILLE SCORCHERS, as they were known to be back then,were pioneers in the genre and have lost none of their previous fire.
In fact, the sound was pure as ever and with some new material in the
mix, it was an awesome performance.
From the excellent choice of venue
forward, the experience was everything I had hoped for.
The crowd was
ready and the band responded in kind. Though I had a real retro feeling
showing up, I left feeling the future of Jason and the whole genre.
We're comin' folks. All these repressed HillBillies that have lacked a
voice in today's music scene.
Now have several and JASON and THE
SCORCHERS are not only amongst the creators from years back, but are
one of our new representatives as the style moves ever forward.
is real energy in this musical style.
It has every bit of the attitude
of all the Metal styles we cover, but with the familiar lilt of that
Southern Mountain sound.
Our hosts and hostesses at THE SHED helped make
this show all the more enjoyable. If you get a chance to catch
and THE SCORCHERS at any stop within your reach, DO SO !!!! If you get
a chance to catch just about any type act you like at THE SHED, I'm
givin' ya an equal shove to do that too.
We are proud to have taken
part in this event from every angle and think you will to if ya get the
opportunity to participate in the future.
Well, gotta go. LOTS of KILLER
BANDS, VENUES, and FANS to cover while the "Gittin's Good."
