ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
HARP MAGIZINE (Staff Pick):

"Cop-doggin', beer-swiggin' country rock from Louisville. The song Rearview Mirror is priceless."

SANTA MONICA MIRROR:

"High-grade Kentucky cowpunk straight outta Louisville."

COUNTRY STANDARD TIME:

" A very promising debut."


MILES OF MUSIC:

"Hell's ½ Acre combine elements of Hillbilly, Rockabilly, Billy Beer and Billy Goats (presumably for the sacrifice) to create their edgy, twangy Southern rock."




SORTA LIKE THE CLASH MEETS THE EVERLY BROTHERS MEETS THAT INBRED BOY FROM DELIVERENCE.


Hell's 1/2 Acre's first album "Blacktops & Blackouts" is a cornicopia of twang, rockabilly, hillbilly and country recorded in early 2003 in Louisville, Kentucky.

While they've been getting rave reviews for their 2004 alt country release "Under a Whiskey Moon" featuring Andy York and produced by Mike Wanchic (both of Mellencamp), this debut CD offer up good, hard-ass, bar room twang.



2004 release "Under a whiskey moon" also available at CD Baby or the Hell's 1/2 Acre Website.


Band Members:

Little John Louie: Vocals/Guitar
Steve McCabe: Lead guitar
Rankin Mapother: Upright Bass/Dobro
Glen Howerton: Drums

This is a very good CD. Good musicianship, good lyrics, overall very good. Well worth the money.

Alt-Country? Hell's 1/2 Acre is the real deal!
If you're into Alt-Country and Americana then Blacktops & Blackouts is for you! These days it seems like many artists from a variety of genres have lost their way are jumping on the "Alt-Country" bandwagon. Well, guess who has a seat in the front row? Hell's 1/2 Acre. In this, their debut release, they hit the nail on the head. They're not afraid to take their genuine brand of twang and stomp, twist it together, wrap it around their foot, and give you a kick square in the privates with it! Ouch! Thank you sir, may I have another ...
