I’ve done more research on this group. They aren’t even in The Indie site yet, but boast hot rockabilly lead guitarist Jim Duckworth who was in the cool band Panther Burns (with Falco) and the 80s punkabilly blues underground LA band The Gun Club. The other star is famous pedal steel player Bobby Black who was is Commander Cody and His Lost Air Men (remember Hot Rod Lincoln?) which was big for their stoner country rock, along side The Flying Burrito Brothers (another great group).
Buffalo Jack’s singer is none other that Patrick Coleman who I think is currently part of PC & The Angels of Death (stoner country rock). I intend to look into them more too.
Here is the website I found on ultra cool underground rockabilly band Buffalo Jack & The Parlor Snakes. http://buffalojack.weebly.com/
I’ve now heard two songs through some secret connections by these guys (I know, I tend to get obsessive about good music) and I promise to leak one in a couple days.
In the meantime, hear is my initial review on what I know and have heard:
Patrick Coleman, a member of PC & The Angels of Death, got together with Stardust Cowboy Bobby Black and Jim Duckworth to make an album long planned by Trygve Has-Ellison that is destined to haunt music history. A strange blend of Johnny Cash, Elvis, and swampabilly with a very hot 1950s production has come to life as Buffalo Jack and The Parlor Snakes.
Yes, my connection (I wiggled my way into) is Trygve Has-Ellison, who is in the group too. I gave him my review and now they’re using it! I love this job.
Stay tuned for some leaked songs.
I just discovered an ultra cool group called Buffalo Jack & The Parlor Snakes. And they sound different from anything I’ve ever heard. Johnny Cash and Elvis drinking and playing swampabilly with this crazy early style production, 50s maybe?
The rumor is there are some past music stars hiding in the band too! Very cool. I’ll tell you more when I find out more. So stay tuned.
This post is to assure all out there that this will be no normal music blog. There will be no new rock bands or pop divas, nor even shiny teethed country stars with hats.
I find the ultra underground. Some make it. Some don’t. But they are out there and better than anything I’ve heard on radio.
My Name is Tamar Campbell and I will tell it like it is. And only if I like it.
