It all started with two old friends getting together on sat. nights drinking and watching the fights on tv. One said "since you're not married anymore you should go buy a new guitar and get back into playing again". So that's what I did and we started jamming in the kitchen on sat. nights. After a short time we decided we didn't want to be just another one of about a million cover bands. So we started writing songs, got us a drummer, and rented a practice room, and went from about 3 original songs to almost 20 in less than 2 years. The rest of the story?...well we'll get to that as it happens.
Well things happen, and sometimes you just have to put on your big boy pants, and move on. Not away from music, but in different musical directions, and with new people. I guess that's all a part of having or being in a band. Sometimes things change.

Ever since The Fumes exploded onto the Aussie rock scene in 2004 with a self-titled EP and the critically-acclaimed debut album Guns Of Gold in 2006, the infamous blooze-rock duo have left slack jaws, ringing ears and wagging tongues in their wake. But in the case of geetar-slinger and mighty-bearded vocalist Steve Merry and drumming prodigy Joel Battersby, the gushing is with good reason. Not so much making a name for themselves as branding it in the consciousness of punters nationwide.

Recorded by legendary Producer Lindsay Gravina (Jet, the Living End, Magic Dirt, Faker) THE Fumes' debut record proves why the band have quickly become one of the nation's most exciting musical prospects.

"Lonely Dog Blues" is also in the soundtrack of "Mad, Bad - The Movie", scheduled for a 2008 release.James' style is a throwback to the mid-1970s, when Blues and Rock were two heads on the same beast. His current lineup includes two guitars, bass, drums, and keyboards, and his bluesy, funky sounds will get your fist pumping, and your rump shaking!
"Tobin James has a gritty and soulful voice... This is an album which benefits from repeated playing, where the phrasing and emotion in his voice becomes more and more appealing. The songs have that authentic and timeless Blues sensibility!" ~ Blues Matters Magazine
Tobin James cut his teeth not on traditional Blues, but on the incendiary Blues/Rock sound of such legendary bands as Cream, Led Zeppelin, and Deep Purple. It wasn’t until attending the University of North Texas in the late 1980s that the future frontman of the Dallas bands Code Blue and Jaded Soul connected with the music of all the great Bluesmen who started it all, and sent him down his musical path firing on all cylinders. Today, all of those influences can be heard loud and clear in the powerful, full-throttle Blues and Blues/Rock of the Dallas native, Tobin James!

King Pima Wolf - Medicine

 7. Good Day to Die -  5:09

King Pima Wolf - Vocals, Master of Ceremony
Matthew J Ruffino  Guitars
Troyous Ricciardi - Bass
Michael (Bam Bam) Sversvold -  Drums

Medicine was formed by four seasoned professional musicians. King Pima Wolf’s brainchild. The sole purpose of this band is to create and to address the harmony that is inherent within each of us. 
Recorded at Ashrum Studios, Detroit MI Mastered at The Legendary Piety Street Studios, New Orleans LA/  “Medicine”, King Pima Wolf and Big Medicine’s album, contains just seven tracks, though it clocks in at an impressive 54 minutes. They’re obviously not a group to be rushed. Indeed, slow blues is their forte and they’re unafraid to let a song unhurriedly unwind, building tension as it develops and respite when it breaks like a wave. Musically, it’s consistently effective, and the band, King Pima Wolf on vocals, guitarist Mathew J. Ruffino, bassist Troy Ricciardi and drummer Michael Sversvold repeatedly bring to mind legendary blues-rockers like Free, the Allmans, or The Doors circa “L.A. Woman”. Love and healing are the themes they’re promoting, and they’re ‘on massage’ from the off. They begin the album with “One”, a peaceful call to arms and a clear statement of intent. “Magic Man Blues” ups the pace and relocates to the swamps; Ruffino’s slide guitar providing thrills aplenty. “What'cha Gonna Do” arrives fully formed, like the illegitimate offspring of Deep Purple and Canned Heat, and final number “Good Day to Die” is upbeat and peculiarly positive, though ‘tomorrow is a good day to die’ is surely a universal truth, insofar tomorrow never comes.

Jimmy Pritchard - Meet Me In Memphis

Size:107,2 MB 
Styles:Blues/Contemporary Blues 

Tracks Listing:
 1. Too Hard To Love Her - 5:19
 2. Beds Too Big - 2:46
 3. Meet Me In Memphis - 5:43
 4. Commit A Crime - 4:13
 5. Daddy's Comin' Home - 3:18

 7. Uncle Bud - 5:03
 8. Gimme What You Got - 4:30
 9. Eatin' Fish Tonight - 2:11
10. Big Daddy - 4:46
11. Jive In My House - 3:25

This is Pritchard’s third self-produced album, following Shoppin’ for the Blues in 2004 and Goin’ Down 9 in 2010. His Jimmy Pritchard Band represented the Jersey Shore Jazz & Blues Foundation in 2014 and were semi-finalists in the International Blues Challenge. He recently relocated north after calling Florida home after hooking up with Castiglia in 2016.  Despite the title, Meet Me in Memphis was recorded at Man of War Studios in West Palm Beach, not the Bluff City. The all-star lineup includes guitarist J.P. Soars and his longtime percussionist, Chris Peet throughout, as well as guest appearances from all three original members of the Paul DesLauriers Band – Paul on guitar with Greg Morency on bass and Sam Harrisson on drums, Castiglia, harp players Rockin’ Jake, Mikey Junior and Albert “Big Daddy” Lambertson, former Allman Brothers keyboard player Johnny Neel and Rachelle Coba on vocals. A simple, heavy guitar riff opens “Too Hard to Love Her” before Pritchard delivers the first of eight originals and three covers, laying down an unhurried beat that carries forward steadily throughout the disc. This one describes a woman who won’t make breakfast, drinks all his booze and omplains all the time. A deep baritone with a smoky delivery and limited range, which doesn’t detract from the presentation, Jimmy picks up the pace slightly for the medium-paced shuffle, “Beds Too Big,” which finds him crying all night long after his lady’s left home. The title cut, “Meet Me in Memphis,” features choral duets with Coba and Neel on keys as recounts great nights on Beale Street. A cover of Howlin’ Wolf’s “Commit a Crime” shines with Pritchard powering through the lyrics atop stellar fretwork and additional vocals from J.P. before Albert and the DesLauriers rhythm section join the action for the original, “Daddy’s Comin’ Home,” a pleasant acoustic ballad with Delta feel that asks a child to make up the singer’s bed and his lady to start cooking his stew and change into her fancy underwear. Soars’ jazzy original instrumental, “Whammy Shuffle,” shifts the sound back to full-on electric and swings from the jump before Pritchard dips into the catalog of Louisiana legend Boozoo Chavis and takes listeners to the bayou for the final cover in the set, the familiar “Uncle Bud.” The sound shifts toward New Orleans for the medium-fast, organ-driven shuffle, “Gimme What You Got,” a sexually charged rocker with a request for lovin’ concealed ever-so-slightly in the words, while the down-home feel returns with the acoustic pleaser “Eatin’ Fish Tonite.” Next up, “Big Daddy” is an intense, driving shuffle that features the subject, Lambertson on harp, throughout aided by a ripping six-string solo from DesLauriers. The action closes with “Jive in My House,” a countrified, ‘50s-style rocker that sings out against folks talking trash when they drop by.
