DBT Week in Review - 3/28/08

We are gonna DBT YouTube it up today likes its 2008 (I was dreaming when I wrote this. Forgive me if it goes astray).

First, check out the sweet rendition of 'Late for Church' by Here's to the Long Haul:


Notice two things in this DBTube. 1. EZB's kick ass drums. 2. Teen Appeal's..... I mean John Neff's badass guitar playing.
Drive-By Truckers perform Putting People on the Moon at the Opera House in Toronto, March 19, 2008


Here's Everlast/Whitey Ford's song called 'Letters Home from the Stone Garden'. It could be a companion piece to DBT's 'That Man I Shot". I'm really starting to dig this song.


Here's DBT performing 'That Man I Shot' in Kentucky recently. Sound can get blown out at times but the guitar work is of another world especially at the end. You can see Patterson look at Cooley with a 'hell fucking yeah finger point' at the end.


Some great pics in this thread: - a DBT fansite :: View topic - DBT @ Pearl Street - The photos and a perspective


Alan Hunter gives DBT a shout out (For those of you old enough to know who Alan Hunter is... And, yes, I'm old enough to write 'for those of you old enough):

Via our intrepid report Shayne from the front line of her couch:

Intersections: Violence against emos sweeps across Mexico **:

"A bizarre wave of mob emo-bashings is sweeping across Mexico. The movement is being generated on message boards and social networking sites by non-emo youth who highly dislike like the emo look and attitude."

Leave the Emos Alone!

Y'all have already fucked up the Emo dance party. What more do you want?!?

The southern rock article is interesting, but it's not fair to say DBT "wallows too much in tales of incest and NASCAR." One song each (unless I'm forgetting something) is hardly wallowing. Now if he had said they wallow too much in tales of Buford Pusser...

the Dexateens banner only works in myspace (I think). Here's the link to the label's download page:

Very good point, David. Though we do need more incest songs. Not a heavily covered genre for some reason.

Thanks, Anon!

Everlast song is wicked. I got his first couple of Whitey Ford albums years ago and loved them. Have to check the later stuff out.

Hell, it was the NASCAR reference that got me listening to Dirty South and DBT in the first place.

AAW said...

If legend is correct, Cooley wrote Daddy's Cup on a bet.

Yeah, I dig the everlast song too.

ABAT said...

Didn't the Truckers sponsor a car a few years ago? I remember seeing some pics of a diecast model. Legends.

Never really got into House of Pain, but I thought What It's Like was an awesome song, must check out the new album when it comes out.
