London trio MIRACULOUS MULE
deliver a slick and seemingly effortless, hard-blues driven brand of rock 'n' roll, but it's knife-edge stuff. We can explain. The slick and effortless part comes from the fact that these boys have been cutting their teeth and earning their stripes over the years with a devout immersion in gothic American roots music, before that particular bandwagon arrived in town again, and again after it left. If that wagon is back, they don't really care and neither should you. Brothers Michael and Patrick were born into a rock 'n' roll home with Elvis and Tammy as surrogate parents.
Born of a parade, the ALL SEEING EYES
are the pride of Dayton, Kentucky. The three piece of multi-instrumentalists developed into the house band at Masonic Sounds Studios in that Kentucky river town. Housed in a Free Mason Blue Lodge, they created the new LP “In Us We Trust”, now available on Mauvias Foi Records in Europe. The trio was described as “the MC5 of the country blues” by Tav Falco after a recent show.
Johnny Walker fronts the band, playing harmonica and guitar. He is the progenitor of the Soledad Brothers and Cut in the Hill Gang who has toured singing for MC5/DKT and done session work with the White Stripes, the Detroit Cobras, the Greenhornes, Low Cut Connie and James Leg. Matt Ayers (drums) and Kane Kitchen (bass) are the rhythm section rooted in Cincinnati R and B legends The Guitars. The band was formed to play a party on a parade route for the largest annual celebration in Cincinnati, Ohio. It was quickly realized that the trio could fill the role as house musicians for Walker’s newly established recording studio across the Ohio river. The All Seeing Eyes began writing and recording their LP in earnest while working in and recording for artists in the Masonic Sounds Studios. They have played extensively in the Midwest of the United States, but touring has been limited by Walkers preferred profession, Psychiatry.
The album is 10 tracks of multifarious songs. The band plays all instruments, aside from contributions by engineer Paul Brumm. We hope you learn to love the All Seeing Eyes offering on “In Us We trust”!
