ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The .357 String Band has spent the last four years criss- crossing America and Europe in half broken down vans, playing in filthy rock and roll clubs and honky tonks, sleeping on floors and couches, or if neccessary underneath the stars.

This album, their sophmore effort, reflects not only their hard-travelling, hard-living lifestyles, but also a refinement and musical maturity only hinted at on their first album.

Tightly written compositions and a lyrical depth not often achieved in the "Outlaw" genres make The .357 String Band a force to be reckoned with.

This ain't your granddaddy's bluegrass, this is STREETGRASS.

Hot Damn!!!!!
The .357 String Band withe their streetgrass has officially given all the Appalachian Bluegrass bands here in the south an official "in your face" with this album!! You'd never know these boys were from the midwest and I am proud to say as a Wisconisite now living in the Appalachian Mountains that The .357 String Band is from my home state! :)

try to stand still
This album is just damn fun to listen to. I dare you to not be impressed by the musicianship in this band, and just try to stand still when they crank it up for some speedgrass. Well worth the price. Don't miss a chance to see this band live as well!

Martin Luther Presley

the second coming of streetgrass
To be perfectly honest, the new album Fire & Hail didn't blow me away on first listen as Ghost Town did. BUT the more I listen to it, the more I like it. Hell, I liked it immediately, but it really grows on you. the .357 String Band is one of the best bands around these days and I promise you, they won't let you down.

hail yeah
keep on a-pickin' and a-sinnin'

It's already been said below but they definitely somehow topped their debut album. Solid all the way from the first track to the end.

BUT the best way to hear em is live and in person!

Fire and Hail
This is right up my street - it's like a bluegrass Pogues, rough around the edges with breakneck banjo. Don't spill your pint!

MUST-HAVE!
Ghost Town set the scene, Fire & Hail just seals the deal. The .357 String Band is an unbelievable group of good ol' boys who don't play your typical bluegrass, and as far as I'm concerned, Amen for that. Everything about them is original. From the speed, to the tent revival scenes displayed in each of the songs, .357 has done something many bands have only dreamed of, and that is appealing to a widely varied audience. Don't go to these shows expecting to see some grandpa's and grannies because you'll be dissapointed real quick. Mohawks, tattoos, beer and crowd surfing is a given when these 4 boys roll into your town. So do yourself a favor and buy both of the CD's, get a case of beer, invite your friends and have a drunken party because this music will have you dancin' til the next revival rolls through your town.
