Misadventures of Kurnell T & the Dixie Mafia
'The Misadventures Of Kurnell T. and the Dixie Mafia' (Comstock). I find both the band name and the album title quite evocative, evoking pictures of a down and dirty country band more at home with sawdust on the floor than the glitz of a ballroom. And that is this band exactly. Two guitars, bass and drums, and one hell of a lead singer performing nine original songs that will please dancers and listeners alike. These guys may not become household names (though they should be) but they will move into retirement in the sure knowledge they have done their bit for country and pleased thousands of people along the way. Sample; 'Early Part Of A Broken Heart', 'Honky Tonkin' Country Style', 'Notch On Her Gun' and 'Hillbilly Angel'. Pete Smith Thank God the large field of country music contains many little acres for individual country music 'farmers': Traditional country music, bluegrass, trucker songs, new country - all these styles and many more give a home for young and old country music lovers. The album â??The Misadventures of Kurnell T. & The Dixie Mafia' by Kurnell T. & The Dixie Mafia is truely something special for fans of country rock. ''Lectric Hillbilly Music' - that's the way singer Jimmy 'Kurnell T' Tidwell, drummer Garry 'Groove' Gooldy, bassist Terry 'Hoot' Gibson und guitarist Jerry Lew Patterson call their rockin' style with deep roots down in traditional country music. Hey, that's the kind of country sound that might be successful here in Germany, too: uptempo rockin' pieces like â??Hillbilly Angel' or â??Lookin' Back On Yesterday' mixed up with ballads like â??Staring At Your Picture On The Wall' or â??Love Has No Mercy', combined with linedance-suitable songs like â??Honky Tonk'n Country Style'. We believe that Kurnell T. & The Dixie Mafia might become a real big thing in the international country music scene during the next years. Their music surely is worth it!
