Amazing double bill of scuzzy punk blues maestros The Bonnevilles and James Leg from Texas.
James Leg (aka John Wesley Myers of the Black Diamond Heavies, Lee County Killers) has just released his third solo album, Blood On The Keys. Leg, the son of a Texas preacher, started playing piano when he was just six. Raised on southern gospel music, he began preaching at the church his father pastored at the age of 14. Two years later he became infected with the lure of rock n’ roll.
The Bonnevilles are shaking Northern Ireland in a way it hasn’t felt since Van Morrison & Them obliterated Club Rado in 1964 and Stiff Little Fingers blew apart The Trident in 1977! The Bonnevilles don’t so much play punk blues as use it as a spring board to create a completely new genre. Their new album “Arrow Pierce My Heart” is evidence of a band at the top of their game. The Lurgan duo take Mississippi Hill Blues and Punk Rock and mix into their own unique dark Northern Irish Punk Blues stew.
