Dire Con self titled EP available May 29th!

Born of warehouses built on stretches of land that are not quite Memphis, Dire Con is quintessentially modern, underground, southern rock.  Front man, Hamilton Ellis, brings forth songwriting chops in the vein of Neil Young, dented and bruised by Arrison Kirby’s gruff production, harkening back to Check Your Head era Beastie Boys.  

 This self-titled collection of songs reflects on the darker, grittier aspects of southern living.  It touches not on topics of American pride and confederate nostalgia, but a small town underbelly of drug abuse, secret lives and death. 

 This disc is the sixteenth release from the El Deth recording label.  It will be digitally available on Spotify, iTunes  and all other major online distributors on May 29th, 2011.

Check out the first single, “Pills,” on Soundcloud…

 

“Michael in the War / Give Peace a Chance” by Never Sorry – at Le Carnival des Autres – 1010 Gallery, Knoxville, TN – 5.6.2011

Here is another clip from the footage taken by Maurita Roman at Le Carnival des Autres from back in May. This one is not as consistently strong as “Until I Die (Rum Blues)” was, but it’s the only other complete video of an entire song – or a two song sequence in this case.

So yeah. It’s a somewhat frantic push of “Michael in the War,” segueing into John Lennon’s “Give Peace a Chance.” And of course, I never know the verses. Just the chorus.

“Until I Die (Rum Blues)” by Never Sorry with Lulu Skidoo – at Le Carnival des Autres – 1010 Gallery, Knoxville, TN – 5.6.2011

This weekend, Never Sorry played a crossdressed acoustic set at Le Carnival des Autres at 1010 Gallery in Knoxville.  In this video, we are joined by Lulu Skidoo (aka Michelle Sanders) for this performance of “Until I Die (Rum Blues).”  She wrote these lyrics.  Myself and Megan Driscoll fleshed out the music.  Then, obviously, everyone else together brought it into form.

This video was filmed by Maurita Roman. I have at least one more good recorded excerpt from the show and it will likely get posted soon.  For now though…
