Bill kirchen hammer of the honky tonk gods

On this album, Bill Kirchen treads where country music finds its origins in blues and bluegrass, and in the Western Swing of Texas and California honky tonks.


He is joined by Nick Lowe, Austin de Lone and The Impossible Birds (Geraint Watkins, Robert Trehern), and their influence is very much in evidence. The title track is a loving tribute to the Fender Telecaster guitar, Kirchen's guitar of choice.
