Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water here I am back with another installment of honky tonk friday. Today’s band is from the East Coast (although the lead singer grew up in the mid-west) and as you know that’s not an area of the country typically not known for country acts but Boston has a good `un with Nate Gibson and the Gashouse Gang (Cow Island Music).
It’s clear from the juke joint jump, 50′s rock and early rockabilly country sounds on the new record that Nate has a good grasp of Country music’s storied past. In fact this new record is a tribute to the Starday Record label; Nate’s completed a history of the label as well with co-founder Don Pierce. Buy it here.
