ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Eric \"Red Mouth\" Gebhardt hails from Florence Alabama, driving a blue mini-van his mom gave him after his Ford Ranger finally bit the dust. Florence is located in the northwest corner of Alabama across the Tennessee River from the infamous Muscle Shoals. Eric\'s music is a mixture of American roots music, particularly delta blues, and punk rock legends from the Stooges to the Weirdos. His eclectic mix of sounds often gets lost on his Bible belt conservative community. He can usually be found playing and/or drinking at the Old Town Tavern in Sheffield Alabama, one of the few places that has accepted and welcomed him.
Eric\'s first solo release came in 2004 in the form of \"Blues...$1.49lb\". The album did well in his immediate surroundings but lack of proper distribution made it difficult for the album to travel very far from his southern foothills. However, the album did make it overseas and into the mailbox of BluesInLondon.com. They loved the album so much that they enlisted Eric as their \"Man in Alabama\", reporting on bluesy things, tales from the road and the occasional album review. Through BluesinLondon he managed to get an on-line record deal with Green Bullet and is expected to be added to the fledgling BluesinLondon Records. His album made it further into Europe, reaching the blues community in Estonia where it has received special attention. There has not been a trip overseas for Eric as of yet due to a lack of funding (his day job is as a record store clerk in the only record store for more than a 30 mile radius), but invitations have been offered and hopefully Eric\'s drunken, blazing red beard will soon storm the shores of England.
\'Sir Red Mouth\' is Eric\'s sophomore effort, continuing his obsession with American roots music but taking that music even further. Bringing in friend, and local psychedelic pop guru Cody Gaisser for added instrumentation and ideas, Eric has put together a collection of songs that obliterate the walls between blues, country, and rock\'n\'roll. However, the magic lies in Eric\'s minimalist southern songwriting. If you want to know what it\'s like to grow up with big aspirations in a small-minded Alabama town with no interstate access, then this record is for you. This is the life of one Eric Gebhardt. Pour yourself a bourbon on the rocks and turn the lights low.

I guess this is why they call it the blues
I don\'t think that Gebhardt will object if I describe his music as fucked-up blues. He uses the blues as a starting point that he soon jumps from \'See What My Life Has Shown\' opens the set, an acapella gospel blues that works really well as a traditional blast of spirituality and as a base for some experimentation with the voices not always going where you\'d expect them to. Small-town frustration comes across loud and clear; this is the sound of a man trapped geographically, probably demographically and expressing frustration by wilfully breaking musical rules - think of the blues as a wall that he sprays sonic graffiti on. He mixes up whatever musical paint that comes to hand and often this just results in a mess and at others something genuinely interesting appears. \'Hearts on Loan\' appears with a plangent guitar and a croon, no distortion, no deconstruction, just the song and in this context the straightforward is a shock. Next up is the banjo led Stonesy boogie of \'Dirty Needles\' a kind of exile on a side street. Also related to Jagger/Richards is \'Just like You\' which is Stones + punkish attitude. \'Hunger Tree\' is a dizzy waltz, the room spinning way too fast, everything so gentle but so out of control it\'s like trying to work out why things happen whilst you\'re out of your head - reasoning is circular, things spin in their own orbits and ultimately we are all stranded in our own small town.
