Pyscho-blues from Scissormen (plus an update on Tim Lee’s new record and a politically charged Blaze Foley cover from Timesbold)

Scissormen will see their first nationally distributed disc via Red Eye this September. They just played Bonnaroo and claim to have made a big splash (from the looks of the photo above I’ll take them at their word). The record is called Luck In A Hurry and is a dirty, bluesy affair.

“Tupelo” is one of the few blues songs you’ll ever hear with a vibraphone intro. It’s a mudddy, distorted track that suits its subject matter to a T.

Tupelo

I wrote up the new Tim Lee record a couple of months back. Tim Lee’s an American rock legend whether you know it or not. He’s been in several of the most influential Americans bands of the 80′s/90′s (aka The Windbreakers with Bobby Sutliff) and produced many of the others. He’s on par with Chris Stamey and Mitch Easter (heresy I know!). Anyway I came across another mp3 from his new record. The band is the Tim Lee 3 and the record is called 2Good2b3.

The song is called “I Like It Like That”. It’s got a Moe Tucker beat, an Alex Chilton b-side feel, and is a romping good time. For fans of power pop and/or Southern rock. Order the new record through Paisley Pop here.

A commenter on an ancient post of mine about Timesbold mentioned their Blaze Foley cover “Oval Room”. Although the song is 20 years old its message of economic turmoil and lackadaisical presidential leadership is fairly relevant today (dontcha think!?).

    I saw the Scissormen Sunday night @ the Deep Blues Festival.
    They put on one hell of a show.
