Rock! Wham! Bam! Southern punk-rock from Alabama, USA!

Rock! Between punk, soul, power pop, country, gospel... An adroit quartet from Birmingham, Alabama USA, so go ahead and add 'southern rock' to that previous list. Have now completed their third CD: the double album 'Youth Detention (Nail My Feet Down To The South Side Of Town)'. Or, from their bio: 'The songs are deeply rooted in Bains’ experience of his hometown, Birmingham, AL. Youth Detention depicts a Southern city in the decades surrounding the turn-of-the-millennium: in the throes of white flight, urban disinvestment, racial tension, class struggle, gentrification, gender policing, homophobia, xenophobia, religious fervor, deindustrialization, and economic upheaval.'

For fans of Drive-By Truckers, and all driven guitar-rascals.
In the press Following on, just taking Britain’s Uncut: 'recently compared them to the best of Drive By Truckers Southern epic songs and says 'Bains admits the influences of Britsh bands like The Kinks, Jam and Blur but also 80s college rockers such as The Primitons, Let’s Active and REM.'
Fun fact Their label name is quite seductive (and so civilized!): Don Giovanni Records!
