    Annoy Your Friends

      Matt and Adam

      So these two dudes dropped by and they’re playing tonight at Will’s Pub on Mills. Go out there and support awesome, badass local music. We had a great show today and we were going to release this as a BDM show but it was so good that we thought we’d just release it to everyone. So…as Adam Lee would say, “You’re welcome.”

      Matt Woods:

      Here’s the short story. Matt has been a figure in the East Tennessee music scene for the past ten years. Located in Knoxville, TN, he has performed in several bands as well as working as a solo artist. Matt has shared the stage with the likes of CAKE, Drivin’ n’ Cryin’, Will Hoge, Kevn Kinney, Roger Clyne (of The Refreshments), Garrison Starr, Tim Lee, Mic Harrison (of the V-Roys and Superdrag), Doug Gillard (of Guided By Voices) , Two Cow Garage, Col. Bruce Hampton & the Code Talkers, Zac Brown, Graham Colton, Brian Vander Ark (of The Verve Pipe), The Features and a seemingly never-ending list of talented independent artists who aren’t getting the widespread respect they deserve from points around the globe. Matt spent his earliest years with a band called Magpie Suite, which received a bit of notoriety around the southeast and produced three albums. Until recently, he worked devotedly with his latest band Plan A, where he wrote songs, sang, played guitars, played cards, drank beers, and often drove from show to show along the east coast in a big, brown van named Daisy. Plan A released and supported two full length albums between 2004 and 2009. Through solo performances and band appearances, Matt has averaged over 200 shows a year for the past few years, an average that would be higher if it weren’t for a very unfortunate thumb-wrestling accident in the spring of ’06. At home, Matt also performs in a duo called Adapted Wood with long time friend Tod Sheley every Monday night, and in several other projects featuring a number of talented musicians. He can also be found sitting in from time to time at random shows in the Knoxville area.

      Adam Lee:

      In the world of a working band there is no greater constant than the road. Few know this better than Adam Lee & the Dead Horse Sound Company, the Kansas City band who put their original spin on that classic country sound. With the release of their sophomore album, ‘When the Spirits Move Me,’ Lee and company touch on many of the elements so familiar to their life on the road. From wild nights in far away towns, to barroom brawls and goodbye kisses, the band expertly explain their travelling life. All with the swingin’ shuffles and country flair of your favorite 45’s. But then again, winding highways and endless mile markers are something they know well.

      Upon completion of their first record, ‘Ghostly Fires,’ the band commenced a wide-spread and heavy touring schedule. Since the release of ‘Ghostly Fires’ the band has also spent a good deal of time refining their already unique sound. While their first album touches on the more subtle tones of Americana, ‘When the Spirits Move Me’ focuses on the band’s affinity for classic country. Twelve tracks of heartbreaking honky tonk that sound right at home in the swingin beer joints and rural roadhouses the band often plays.

      Leading the way is Adam Lee whose basement baritone perfectly presents the highs and lows of life on the road. Joining Lee are Johnny Kay (electric guitar, mandolin) and Boomerang Dave Bruchmann (upright bass), and when this train starts a-chuggin, folks had better hold on. Their live show is a rowdy and rollicking good time full of all original honky tonk music — songs to drink to, cry to, and most of all dance to. So bring a date, grab a drink, and don’t forget your dancin’ shoes. Adam Lee & the Dead Horse Sound Company are headed down the highway, and there’s no end in sight.

          Those guys are as real as it comes.

      • Sincerely, Disappointed

        ” …it was so good that we thought we’d just release it to everyone.” So the BDMs get the sub par shows?

        • http://www.TomandDan.com/ Tom and Dan

          Yep. Every show that we charge for is a giant piece of shit. Come on, don’t be a wise-ass. You know that we give 100% to ALL shows and to everything that we put out. This was our way of attempting to show non-BDM’s what they’ve been missing. Nothing more. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to go powder my ‘roids.

          • b-hole

            I’m fuckin with you. And I’d say you give 60%, tops.

            • http://www.TomandDan.com/ Tom and Dan

              You’re being FAR too generous. 45% at best and tell Dan to not get his little panties in a wad. He just takes this show so fucking seriously. It’s almost like he believes in it and loves it with all of his heart. Wait. This might be Dan. Pipe down, you little fucker.
