AND BE SURE TO GET OUR OTHER NEW RELEASE, HEATH GREEN, HEATH GREEN AND THE MAKESHIFERS are a group of incredible deep-feel musicians hailing from Birmingham, Alabama. The band is fronted by Heath Green, a singer who bears the Eddie Hinton mantle as much as anyone living does. The Makeshifters heavy sound has been compared to Leon Russell and The Shelter People, Humble Pie, and Joe Cocker
Guitarist, singer, harmonica player, and songwriter MARK PORKCHOP HOLDER is a founding member of the seminal Tennessee punk rock blues band The Black Diamond Heavies (with John Wesley Myers aka James Leg, and Van Campbell of the band King Mud).
MARK PORKCHOP HOLDER plays the blues, and his music is the sound of the truth. He has traveled around the world and the US, and played at festivals, clubs, in the streets, at churches, in public toilets, army surplus stores, and in a mental hospital or two. After more than a decade of struggling with depression and addiction, he has finally come back home, in Chattanooga TN, and assembled a first rate power trio.
His debut “Let It Slide” is a blistering blues album that marries both the modern and the traditional. “Let It Slide” has been described by the Chattanooga Pulse as “Boogie, sans bullshit. Dirty roadhouse music. Juke Joint jamming. Swamp rock. Too rock for blues, too blues for rock, the music is hungry, hard and mean."
"Got the record last week, haven't taken it out of rotation since. Really great stuff,Velvet Underground meets Junior Kimbrough and the best version of Stagger Lee I've ever heard."- Adam B.
