Hard edge country-tinged Southern Rock that just makes you want to move...


Another EP that leaves you wanting more is the new ‘1919’ EP from ‘Outlaws and Moonshine’ which from the country tinged opener ‘Cootie Brown’ through the more Kid Rock hard rock groove of ‘Whisky’ which has the immortal refrain “Drinking Whisky, Screaming ‘Hell Yeah’, man I really love that stuff” grabs you by the balls in a friendly Southern sort of way.


Describing themselves as New Southern Rock, thankfully they’ve still kept all the elements we love of good old Southern Rock. ‘Hey Y’All’ has some great ‘redneck and proud of it’ lyrics as well as namechecking Johnny Cash, which is never a bad thing, and sits nicely in part semi-parody part real pride territory.  It’s a great song as is the slower, ballad-paced ‘Redneck Me’ that follows sporting some nicely observed lyrics.   


Sadly it’s all over far too soon as the EP closes with the reflective ‘Different Kind of Man’ another slow number true, but probably the most powerful song here and one that really has you thinking of the great names of Southern Rock.
Absolutely love it.
