NINE POUND HAMMER : The Barn's On Fire
This new live album from Nine Pound Hammer captures them with all the raw power hitting on all cylinders NINE POUND HAMMER, founded by Blaine Cartwright (guitar) and Scott Luallen (vocals), rose from the flatlands of Owensboro, Kentucky in 1985, fully possessed in spirit of their heroes the Ramones, Cash, and Bruce, and tons of BBQ.
The first LP, " The Mud, the Blood, and the Beers" caught the ear of the BBC's John Peel, and roped in much critical raves, "the Ramones in a pickup" Billboard. That launched a ten year ride that landed them on the legendary Crypt Records, to record " Smokin Taters" (1992) and "Hayseed Timebomb" (1994). Intense roadwork made them family to thousands of fans in the states and Europe, even Japan got a taste in 96. Tony Hawk also snatched up the smash "Run Fatboy Run" for his video game.
A burnout break saw Blaine form the notorious NASHVILLE PUSSY, and finally in 2003 they reunited for the triumphant "Kentucky Breakdown" on Acetate Records. "Sex ,Drugs, and Bill Monroe" 2005 followed, and the band penned "Carl's Theme" for the AQUA TEEN HUNGER FORCE movie soundtrack, along with the intro song to the cult classic " 12 OUNCE MOUSE" on Adult Swim. Scott even wrangled a role as corndog farmer" Rooster". "Country Classics" 2010, rounded out the gloriously erratic decade, punctuated by more self imposed crises and exiles.
