500 Miles to Memphis (from the album Blessed Be the Damned available as a self-release)
500 Miles to Memphis lead a line of harmony and handclaps into the righteous words and drum pounds of “The River”, matching the stomp of a beat to the slap on the front porch feet for “Piggie Boy” while Punk Metal backs the countrified crush of “What a Waste”. Blessed Be the Damnedfrom the Cincinnati, Ohio band chews up the highway on the churn of “No Doubt About It” while hell is raised in the rhythm and the electric force of the title track. 500 Miles to Memphis touch “Bonnie” with Celtic strums and highland hollers and take “Save Me” to church on organ swells, shouted confessions, and hay-wired country rock’n’roll.
Spit and snarl are the uncredited additions to the music of 500 Miles to Memphis, the sound getting the band dubbed Punk Americana. Blessed Be the Damnedmeans what it says when 500 Miles to Memphis suggest “Hold On Tight” over a Socal skater punk jam that slows to ska before picking up speed tracing the curve of a fiddle charge into a full throttle finish. Banjos chase the beat as guitar riffs tag the rhythm rush of “In My Chest” while Blessed Be the Damnedpulls off the trail as 500 Miles to Memphis exit the album with the community singalong of “I’m a Bastard”.
