Guts ‘N Teeth – Old Man Markley (US release: 18 Jan 2011)
Take nine punks – from the San Fernando Valley, no less – and give ’em the normal guitar, bass & drums. Then add a banjo, auto-harp, fiddle, mandolin, and…*wait for it*…a washboard. What do you have? Old Man Markley, who release their debut album this week. Check them out — you may be as pleasantly surprised as I was. Enjoy!
Old Man Markley are an American punk bluegrass band formed in 2007. Their record label describes their sound as “what would happen if Mike Ness [of punk rock band Social Distortion] woke up drunk in a bed with the guys in Old Crow Medicine Show and decided to just make a record rather than do the walk of shame.” I don’t make this shit up. :-)
