Well, shit. Now what?
Been a whole lot of kerfuffle on the on the ol' internets over the last, well, forever (in digital age) about what constitutes "real Country". Professional moron Blake Shelton certainly didn't help matters much in his recent comments. (would love to see him stand boot to boot with Merle Haggard and call him an "old fart" and "jackass"...we can only speculate how that encounter would turn out). This is actually old news, relatively speaking, and plenty of others have called out Shelton over his comments. But, it raises many questions about the machinations of the accepted machinery of Nashville's production line of safe "hats" and Country radio's culpability in the watering down of a very unique tradition into packages of jingoism and tired stabs at rabble-rousing.
At some point, we have a longer post on this matter, and we've never been afraid of kicking up some dust, if need be, but we don't wanna put today's cover star in the crosshairs, as it were, other than an acknowledgement that he's the perfect antidote to both the generic posturing of "contemporary" Country and the suspicious nature of "alt" Country, who's time has long passed.
We can argue "authenticity" until the cows come home, and it's an interesting, if slightly frustrating, argument. But...read on...
Owen Mays is a big man. With a big voice, which he uses sparingly. He's got big ideas, that he channels through the tropes of Country, destroying the safety net as he goes. The "tradition" is there, which finds its home in instrumentation that is both familiar and alien. Alien in a world of bleeps and blips and focused dressing to disguise a lack of songwriting. Owen Mays writes songs...remember those?
Your back porch six-pack shotgun savior, then.
Mays travels a dusty road, full of cratered wagon wheels, the dust a badge of pride, the hard travelin' a mark of a man with a message, the circuit ridin' preacher, demons at his back and the open plains shinin' golden afore. And, so the music...
From the concept of the "old weird America", we've been blessed by a variety of snake charmers and medicine men over the years, and Owen Mays takes his place, crafting tunes both old as the hills and firmly standing in the wide open spaces of now. On the two albums we have (with another on the way soon), "Red Wine and White Lines" and "Nobody Loves You When You're Down" (with the 80 Proof Boys), Mays spins and weaves a hootenanny, dancing you a sad waltz into the lonely night, drinking you under the table, stomping the hardwood floors, and swinging you like a dance-hall partner, shake hands and do-si-do.
As a songwriter, Mays is a keen observer, and can turn a phrase with the best, with a lighting in a bottle level of introspection leavened with a thrill for the "good times". At times lovely, at times sad, at times vengeful, at times lascivious, he takes the human condition and makes it his very own, and invites you to join him on the hayride. Fiddles and geetar, banjo and slapped bass. All the joyous and sad things in life wrapped in a bundle, and pure Country in the way Merle and George and Lefty meant it.
Much talk about the current saviors of male Country, Jamey Johnson, (the mighty) James Hand and Hayes Carll (for differing reasons and differing levels of appreciation), but Owen Mays certainly could stake his claim amongst 'em (or above 'em...yr mileage may vary). (There are so many other great artists in the trenches, that we are guilty of omission...someday we'll get to 'em all...).
One of our favorite new artists, then. The Honky Tonk is open, and Owen Mays is bringin' the hootenanny in spades. He's comin' to yr town soon, so open up yr screen door, bottle up the fireflies and string the lights. Pull out yr favorite bourbon and sway yr gingham dress 'til the early hours.

The Big Rock Candy Mountain Best Records of 2012, Part The Final!
10. Barry Brusseau: The Royal Violent Birds LP
Another deep Autumn record by Mr. Brusseau (who we wrote about here), like red and orange leaves falling all about, droned and sad. A monumental record, from a supremely talented, independent and idiosyncratic artist. More on Mr. Brusseau and his fledgling label coming up soon.
Barry Brusseau: Plymouth Fury (car ride) (mp3)
9. Owen Mays and the 80 Proof Boys: Nobody Love You When You're Down
Boozed-up, bad-livin' honky tonk glory, like the good lord intended. Mr. Mays is our next post, so we'll have more say then. Gird yr pansy "alt-country" loins, kids, this is the real deal.
Owen Mays and the 80 Proof Boys: 80 Proof Nights (mp3)
8. Outer Minds: Outer Minds LP/ Behind the Mirror LP
Two mighty psych-scuzz platters from Chicago's finest, space is the place with rockets burning stars into oblivion, droned jangled chanted swirly cream universe, free yr mind and explode a million times the Sun.
Outer Minds: Kings and Thrones (mp3)
Outer Minds: Look Behind the Mirror (mp3)
7. Reverend Frost: Bloody Tomahawks 7"/ Every Goddam Thing To Hell LP
Perennial Mountain fave Reverend Frost gives us a proper album and a hell of a 7". Rickety, creaky, jesus on a bender trash galore, Tom Waits meets the Cramps in a rumble, knives pulled, there's gonna blood on the moon tonight, and the horror movie in yr mind is a living thing, greasy and jumpin' jive. The Devil's on yr tail, the road is winding, with only one headlight and the breaks are out, the darkest canyon below, belching fire, and who's yr savior?
Reverend Frost: Every Goddam Thing to Hell (mp3)
6. catl: Soon All This Will Be Gone
What we said in our review:
A trashy glory of of an album, full of strange back road ramble, bruised, bloody, and anglin' for a fight. Nasty, filthy gutter blues, ready to move yr ass and shoot you busted and broken into the night... This is a band, and a record, that wants you to fuck, drink, and get got-damn lowdown... blown-out tire, voodoo-kissed, burn the white-trash porch down ravers, all organ-drenched, harmonica blistered, geetar-fucked, rhythmic groovers, hollerin' and scuzzed, bleeding sweat and kerosene, white lightning and mad dog cocktail. Main man catl his very own self rakes the unholy coals of hell with his mud-stained voice a prophet.
catl: He'll Make A Way (mp3)
5. Dynamite Pussy Club: Church of Yeah!
Holy fuckin' shit!!!! Revved to the red rawk'n'roll, busted speaker trash gospel sleaze, testifyin' the apocalypse, booze broads and hollerin' sanctified gut bucket tear this motherfuckin' roof down. Nothin' was nastier this year, big fuzz wailing soulpunkgarage destruction. We're out of breath listenin' to this holy mess of rawk scuzz!
Dynamite Pussy Club: Testify! (mp3)
4. Ian Hunter and the Rant Band: When I'm President
This was a year when critics rushed to praise a few oldsters who made less than exciting records. Springsteen showed he was a better keynote speaker than his newest bland record (which Rolling Stone named "best record, showing how out of touch they are) would prove. Dylan officially went off the deep end, and not in an interesting way, despite what folks will tell you, and gave us a tiresome rehash (and possibly theft) of tropes we've heard over and over. Neil Young released an un-listenable 2-disc set of tedious hippie jams, looking backwards. The Rolling Stones just looked stupid and their new single was a by-the-numbers turd. Good lord, can anyone over 60 (other than Tom Waits) make an interesting record?
Well, yes, yes they can.
Ian Hunter (you might know him from Mott the Hoople...you know...the classic "All The Young Dudes") is yr man! Wait, come back!
Still urgent, still full of glam situation, horns and plinking shack-styled piano, Hunter knows what moves the spirit, and boogie-fried southern growl, swing a bar band round the rosy, man just wants to rawk and fuck the introspection, it's all about the big sound and the end of the night where yr dancing with yr guy or gal and yr not gonna get fucked over with irony. The gravel voice, the rock'n'roll, the silent sweeper while you clutch the one you love over the big sound. Nobody else came close.
Ian Hunter and the Rant Band: Comfortable (Flyin' Scotsman)
3. James Hand: Mighty Lonesome Man
Honky Tonk. Country music the way you remembered, stripped of Nashville nonsense. The mightiest man, with pedal steel and fiddles and the loneliest whistle. James Hand, whom we have been in love with for years, solidifies his place in the pantheon of Hank, Merle, Lefty, George, and Waylon. They're of a piece, and James Hand carries the tradition.
No pretenses, no nod to "alt", no compromise.
What James Hand does is transcend the expected, delivering a set of pure country gold, lonesome desert, deep-hearted and purely old-school (not a bad thing).
Put yr boots on the hardwood floor, raving up sawdust and dirt, swing yr partner and dance and cry and drink and dance some more.
James Hand: Now Not Later (mp3)
2. Neneh Cherry and the Thing: The Cherry Thing
The most unexpected of records, a jazz "thing", from the daughter of a legend (that would be "Don"), best known for a 90's hit. But, good gravy, transforming how we think about music, and the stuffy preclusions taken.
Deep Soul, punk cover, layered and defiant, furry and sex groove, a helium balloon voice slinking in and out over transcendental soundsoundsound, oh yes.
Sun Ra backing Billie Holiday, when you dream, deep dream the constellation lighting up the walls around yr lonely bed. Wake and feel the tremor of the earth, the moon shining just for you, and you alone, the sound of all yr hopes laid bare, and be, and be, and be.....
Neneh Cherry and the Thing: Dream Baby Dream (mp3)
1. Daddy Long Legs: Evil Eye On You LP
Rock and Roll was informed by the Blues. With that, we give a tip o'the hat to Nick Tosches and Greil Marcus. And where does that leave us? A crossroads, as it were, between the holy Southern jukejoint and the New York transposing, a posture on both ends, a fight between the sacred and the profane. Where white boys, now, mimic and flagellate on a created altar, the battle of Ghost World's "Blues Hammer" and Fat Possum's crate-digging attempt at revival, complete with hip-hop re-workings of the assumed standard, standing in stark contrast to tradition, whatever that is.
A little over a year ago, we attended Norton Record's big anniversary fest in Brooklyn. It was a great festival. On the last night of the fest, a band came on early, and we missed the first half of the set. What we saw of the remaining set blew our minds, and put that band on our radar....what records could we buy from them, this insane band that was suddenly our favorite band in the world? Well, nothing, really, other than an A-Side on Norton's famous Rolling Stones tribute series (they did "Cocksucker Blues"....a great choice). So, we bided our time, listened to other great records, pushed this band into the recesses of our mind, figgering well...at some point they'll release a record, and it 'll probably be pretty nifty.
We had no idea. No idea at all.
What Daddy Long Legs unleashed upon these cynical ears was nothing short of masterwork. A shot in the dark of the deep trembling heart of rock'n'roll, all desperation and harmonica short-fuse mess-around, blowing yr ears, yr speakers, yr very rhythmic pulse, whoopin' and stompin' from the get-go, going deep down into yr soul and pulling you into frenzy, wailing the chug a chug and chug a lug, spilled beer on the barroom floor while you kick and shimmy the slide on down to Satan's very personal lounge, the sound of the damned and the sound of the "we don't give a fuck", because the shack is open 24-7 and we're gonna grind and fuck the latest morning and the deepest night, blow, baby, blow, the train is haulin' and we're in the caboose, the back end of respected society, hootin' it up to the end of the line.
Yeah, it's 3 white boys from Nooo Yawk. And, yeah, they kick yr ass from every direction. Full throttle, nuthin' you heard this year comes even close!
Best Record Of The Year!
Daddy Long Legs: Shackin' Up (mp3)

20. Wild Billy Childish and the Spartan Dreggs: Dreggradation LP/ Coastal Command LP
Billy Childish again. Of course. 2 LP's released simultaneously, both bearing Childish's inimitable stamp of punk garage fury (with a hint of mod-era Who, mayhaps?), this time full of very English inside-jokes, mythology, and philosophy. You feel smarter, while still pogoing and banging your head against the brick wall of society.
Spartan Dreggs: Radio Dreggs (mp3)
19. John Wesley Coleman III: Trans Am Summer Blues/ Last Donkey Show LP
One of America's finest songwriters, sleazed backroads country laments, noisome bar band ravers, delicate meandering, big giant handclappin' rawk, lo-fi scuzz transistor, a spilled map mess of everything great in the world.

16. The Coup: Sorry To Bother You
Best protest record of the year, yr mind and yr loins on fire, deeply funky, shimmer and shake the end times with the party in full swing Boots Riley yr emcee, floorboards stomped and the downfall of western civilization is a hootenanny, "Magic Clap" the best song you've heard all year.
The Coup: Magic Clap (mp3)
15. Natural Child: Hard In Heaven/ For the Love of the Game
Dirty, dirty rawk'n'roll, snotty like it should be, a little Ian Hunter a little Replacements a little boogie the shack down, crude 70's geetar girls girls girls summer cruising pumping out yr Trans Am.
Natural Child: 8 AM Blues (mp3)
14. Liminanas: Crystal Anis
Fizzy droned summer pop like Stereolab meets Nico meets Ye Ye meets Lee Nancy Serge and Jane, sweet and very sour, delicate and sharp, endless starry night, willow tree aflame with fireflies.

13. 10 Cent Fuck Flicks: 8 Songs About Drugs and Sex
Completely fucked up scuzzsleaze songs about, well...fucking and drugs, not subtle but devil may care in short bursts of wicked raunch, filthy low-bottom rawk inspired in jizz-soaked beer-stained urgency, more alive in lowest-common denominator you want this like yr latest fix.
10 Cent Fuck Flicks: Chew You Up (mp3)
12. Left Lane Cruiser and James Leg: Painkillers
The mighty and right Rev. James Leg teams up with god's favorite band, Left Lane Cruiser, for a grooved out, righteous, dirt road workout, filthy and primal, jesus on the lp runout blessing his children on the tribal satan hallelujah fury, fire on the mountain scorched earth below!
Left Lane Cruiser and James Leg: Ramblin' On My Mind (mp3)
11. Chicken Diamond: II
What we said earlier this year:
"Haulin' devil-boogie junk in an Ed Roth jalopy,straight outta France, this is a record that burns, deep hellfire blues and gasoline vapor trail. Chicken Diamond, his very unrighteous self, kicking voodoo sleaze across a dirty horizon, howling and gnashing for your soul, blurred bluespunk, one man prophet, the pedal goes down and it's straight to the cliff of damnation, jeering the whole way. "
Chicken Diamond: Country Song (mp3)
Seriously, support the artists! Fuck the man! Corporate rock sucks!

Man, we want that hi-fi system above....
Here we go! Day 2 of the Big Rock Candy Mountain Top 50 Rekkids of 2012! Good times!
Y'all might notice a lack of 7"'s on the list...gonna give 'em their own list eventually.
Also, y'all might notice that we have virtually no major label releases on our list (maybe a couple of exceptions coming up). Oddly, that's not so much on purpose, but more, well, the fact that the "majors" don't really release anything interesting. It's just not in their nature.
