Bucky This is some downright blistering rock n roll brimming with smooth, poppy vocals and cut with fuzzy delta blues. The riffs are overflowing with groove laden bass and a pleasant outlaw twang. I haven't been this blown away since last years 'High Plains' release by Youngblood Supercult. Go ahead look them up too. Favorite track: Midday Moonlight.

about

Blackbird Hill Bordeaux, France

"Leurs deux chants s'accordent à l'étrange duel entre guitare et batterie, délivrant des compositions aux accents incantatoires"...c'est sur scène, qu'ils préfèrent délivrer l’énergie qui fait la matière même de leur musique. Le public devient alors, le temps d'une transe sonore, le témoin de paysages fantasmés et de vies vécues." ... more

Track Name: Trigger Law
Gonna tell you what happened last night.
Henry James shot my Mary Jane.
They met on her way back home,
Her beauty drove the man insane.

He shot her straight in the eye.
Marshall's looking for him now.
Carried her on the back of my horse,
Buried her in the backyard of our house.

Avenge you darling, to be free that's what I'll do.
Now I'm gonna find this guy and leave him stone dead on the ground tonight.
Beat the devil, fight the devil, shoot the devil (and) serve mankind.
Henry you're a dead man, I'm out of my mind.

- Firing rifle.
Get rid of evil.
Track Name: Horseback Sight
See me falling, see me standing hear me singing this song that never stops.
Wonder what happened to all the saints who keep an eye out for what this means.
See me standing, where they used to stand, see me falling, where they use to rise.
See them raining, the drops I hate so much, see them crashing in my eye.
Wonder what happened to all the saints who keep an eye out for what this means.
Those feathers of theirs are armor of mine, and heavier is the time oh my.
Still remember how the wind blew, eyes of a killer the moon would still break through.
Hear them singing that song that's about you all.
Wonder what happened to all the saints who keep an eye out for what this means.


Once again I find myself alone in the darkness.
Track Name: Run Like Mad
One morning I woke up at the crossroads babe,
Whisky was dancing in my head.
Came here to meet the devil my old friend,
He poured me another whiskey, shook my hand.

When I die just don’t cry don’t pray,
Tell everybody tell’em my soul’s for sale.
When I die just don’t cry honey,
Tell god he ain’t never gonna catch me.

Next morning I woke up and I felt so sad.
Devil was gone so I sat , sat and cried.
Bought myself another bottle, one more time.
Lord you never get me satisfied.

When I die just don’t cry don’t pray,
Tell everybody tell’em my soul’s for sale.
When I die just don’t cry honey,
Tell god he ain’t never gonna catch me.

Now I’m 25 man, that old devil went away,
Sure enough I’ll hop a freight train, no you won’t see me again.
Track Name: Stories From The Road
If you wanna hear stories, stories from the road,
Let me tell you one brother, let me tell you one.
Swear it won’t be long brother, and if you know dirt and fire,
You can come along, brother, yes, you can sing along.

There was outlaws, brother, one had a scary face.
One of his eyes, oh, couldn’t see anyway.
The other one had tattoos, scars from the sea,
Covered his body, oh, tough guys you see.

See these two fellows, they knew no preacher.
They came to town brother with nothing but dust and feathers.
Crows they got noisy, the sky got heavy,
The church was no home.

One morning oh brother, they hung the old preacher,
They left soon after, the blind boy and the sailor.

Once boy I had a father,
He died like a sinner,
His home was a shelter,
His name gave‘em faith.

Can’t tell I’m done here, but if you have dust and feathers,
You can listen to whole story of the blind boy and the sailor.

We’re not story tellers, 'dammit we're just some travelers.
Track Name: Hold Your Fire
I can count to ten, to tell who I am :
One for the road, two for the show,
Three to get money for what it’s worth,
Five, six, seven and I hate myself – oh !
Wait till I get to 99.

You find yourself in a crowded place,
No one looks at you, you got no face,
just a ghost, you’re just a shade,
You’re a wandering soul you’re alone you know it man.

Shoot rest and fire again,
Cool down your anger man,
Stay here or run away,
Don’t know how to hold your fire.

You got no words comin' out of your mouth,
And you see those fools you don’t know where you are,
And when you say now I need to get up and drive,
You just do, wanna, burn the tires.

Shoot rest and fire again,
Cool down your anger man,
Stay here or run away,
Don’t know how to hold your fire.

Better hold your fire.
Track Name: Midday Moonlight
"I make my own money,
Cause I come from the city,
Yes I’ll find my honey,
Make her sweat till the next day.
Ho baby stand on your own two feet !
I’mma take you down to hell with me,
Whisky running down through my veins,
Do you still think you know me well ?
You need the sun to blind a man,
To see the shadow, the shadow of a man.
I need the moonlight,
Makes me howl it sets me up on fire.
I will stand before you rise,
I will beg for the moonlight,
Lord the road is where I’ll die,
Lord the road leads my way.
Burry me up on the hill,
When you’re done you will remember me
As shadows dancin’, all around your brains,
Do you still think you know me well ?
You need the sun to blind a man,
To see the shadow, the shadow of a man.
I need the moonlight,
Makes me howl it sets me up on fire.
Sun at midnight - baby blind his eye - midday moonlight - set on fire"
