James Leg

 

Harbours wildfire in his breast“. – Mojo Magazine

There is nothing l ike a Leg record and there never will be, no one plays like him, no one growls like him, and certainly no one rocks like him.” – No Depression

Part Howling’ Wolf, part Iggy Pop, he’s the new standard- bearer for the for the rebels, the new punk in a land of posers.” – Elmore Magazine

 

James Leg (aka John Wesley Myers of the Black Diamond Heavies, Lee County Killers) has just released his third solo album, Blood On The Keys.

Back in his days with the Heavies, Leg laid the foundation for his solo work with his down-n-dirty keys, fervent live performances and trademark gruff black snake moan.

Following the success of his acclaimed 2015 solo album, Below The Belt, Leg recorded once again at the Masonic Sounds located in a Masonic Lodge in Dayton,
KY, and had the album mixed by renowned producer/engineer Jason Soda (GospelbeacH, Everest) at SodaCuts in East LA.

 

 

 

 

The Bonnevilles

 

Ulster power-duo combine punch with songwriting panache-Coruscating filthy fuzz!” – Classic Rock 8/10

Arrow Pierce Your Heart is a scuzzy punk blues gem” – Ralph McLean BBC Radio Ulster
The Bonnevilles are shaking Northern Ireland in a way it hasn’t felt since Van Morrison & Them obliterated Club Rado in 1964 and Stiff Little Fingers blew apart The Trident in 1977! The Bonnevilles don’t so much play punk blues as use it as a spring board to create a completely new genre. Their new album “Arrow Pierce My Heart” is evidence of a band at the top of their game. The Lurgan duo take Mississippi Hill Blues and Punk Rock and mix into their own unique dark Northern Irish Punk Blues stew.

 

Lead singer and guitarist Andrew McGibbon Jr had this to say to the Huffington Post when they exclusively previewed & streamed “Arrow Pierce My Heart”….

 

We decided to write a love album, hence the title Arrow Pierce My Heart, but we aren’t balladeers so it ended up littered with our usual topics—death, rising from the dead, murders, drinking, drugs, sex, revenge and more revenge, but that’s ok.

Because we’re Irish, which isn’t so much a race of people as it is a death cult, we deal with this stuff so you don’t have to and our idea of love is a dark love not the sickly sweet kind. Not so much roses and kittens but whiskey and shame, and that too is ok. We take our responsibility as the conduits of the Gods very seriously. The human experience is about sinning and failing; that’s where the acid is and that’s what we try to write about.”
