Mulehead, Slobberbone @12:00am, Mulehead @10:0pm – $12 cover @9:30pm. No advance tickets. 21+ only.
The story goes, Slobberbone was born in a Denton, TX Park ‘n’ Go beer store parking lot in early 1992. Over the course of the next four years the band would cut their teeth and earn their chops across the Texas music landscape. 1996 brought forth the release of the band’s debut album, Crow Pot Pie. The world would eventually be blessed with three more Slobberbone albums (Barrel Chested, Everything You Thought Was Right Was Wrong Today, Slippage) before the band decided to call it quits. Bees and Seas: The Best of Slobberbone is a not a mere greatest hits album but more a creative retrospective, a painstakingly selected group of songs that best represent who the band is and was. The majority of these songs are set to be released on vinyl for the first time ever. This 1-CD, 180g double LP set features an original cover painting by Will Johnson (Centro-matic, Monsters Of Folk) and liner notes by Patterson Hood (Drive-By Truckers). New West Records is pleased and proud to put out a “new” Slobberbone record!
“Often with their collective tongue in their collective cheek, Mulehead kicks out the stops with a nice blend of genuine C&W, country/rock and wit. Fans of Gram Parsons and the Flying Burrito Brothers will especially enjoy their well-crafted tunes…..some of the smartest country/rock going.”
After a stint in Little Rock band Ho Hum, Kevin Kerby has been Mulehead’s singer-songwriter-guitarist and trail boss since its formation in the late 1990s, overseeing the release of the albums Never Again (1998), The Gospel Accordion II (1999), Rocket Surgery (2001), Finer Thing (2004) and Forever Out of Tune (2015). Geoff Curran on drums, Brent LaBeau on bass and David Raymond on guitar, round out this wily, four piece Alt-Country/Rock outfit. Prepare to be drop kicked with all the swagger and spite only a band named Mulehead can bring.
