Most known photos of the one man wrecking crew known as Joe Buck Yourself look like the one above, with his mouth agape - as if he were a rabid horse about to bite its owner. And that isn't far from the case.
Once upon a time, Mr. Buck was a tavern keeper in Nashville. Then after wearing out his welcome with both the city and Th' Legendary Shakers, Buck hooked up with another Nashville outlaw, Hank III. When Hank III didn't tour enough for Buck's liking, he grabbed a kick drum to acompany his screeds of "hillbilly pride" and "southern rage"in taverns accross North America. He tours so much, that he hasn't had time to release another album since his 2008 self-titled debut. Come out tonight to Churchill's Pub and learn the lessons the road have taught him, like how to cover Antiseen's "Animals, Eat Them" - or how invoking the great Bluesman Muddy Waters can transform a barn-owning hillbilly with a chip on his shoulder into a torch singer - albeit one with some propane behind the flame.
