It really seems inevitable that Drive-By Truckers would evolve into a full-fledged protest band. They always had a major bent toward societal analysis, even if it wasn’t always exactly political per se. On their new album, coming out next month, they have moved full-fledged toward politics with Patterson Hood’s “What It Means,” about Trayvon Martin […]

A few musical items of interest. One of my ten favorite albums of all time is back in print. That is Sonny Sharrock’s Ask the Ages. The great guitar player died soon after making this album, jus

Via Roy, it looks as if K-Lo got stood up in favor of the Drive By Truckers. In response to her invitation to young conservatives to head to a fundraiser being put on by Elayne (Mrs. Bill) Bennett (no word on whether the fundraiser involved $50 a pull slot machines), John Miller responded: Sorry K […]

I mentioned in this comment thread that Dress Blues wasn’t one of my favorite songs from Jason Isbell’s Sirens of the Ditch. I should probably add that one of the reasons for this is the o
