The Rusty Gun Revival

Saturday, May 12th, 2007

Sometimes what you see is not what you get… and it’s a damned good thing! I stumbled accross the band Rusty Gun Revival a while back and saw that their leading photo was the typical 3 piece ensemble with the stand-up bass and so I just moseyed right along. Now let me tell you that out here in the southwest you’ve got a new band every week who runs out and finds a stand-up-bassist, slaps a name on their group like “Big Jane and the Armadillo Bandits” or something equally cliche and proceeds with a predictable cheap knockoff of some really great (but over-copied) rockabilly pioneers. Next thing you know the same 20 pompadored and betty-banged fanatics are flocking to their shows and drownin themselves in enough PBR to make em sound like a well-oiled machine.
And then on this fine Saturday mornin’ in a fit of early The Rusty Gun Revival
morning insomnia I meandered across their profile on MySpace and let the music player load. And what I heard was something good… a voice like a very young Willie Nelson, and a smooth blend between the guitar, bass and drums. Songs like “Smoke” and “No More Blues” are mellow and heartfelt ballad, While “The Girl Is Hot” and “Set It Up Go” a reminiscent of old sock hop bands with an extra kick. One thing’s for certain: You won’t find your standard bum bum bum bum bass line driven rockabilly with these guys… Instead you’ll find real music!
