    White Buffalo

    In his native Mississippi and throughout the South, Jimbo Mathus is recognized as the prolific songwriter of born-in-the-bone American music, the torchbearer for Deep South mythology and culture. The lifelong musician and co-founder of the hyper ragtime outfit Squirrel Nut Zippers has signed to Oxford, MS label Fat Possum Records and will release White Buffalo, produced by Eric Roscoe Ambel. Opening with the mandolin-driven Southern Gothic fable In The Garden, Mathus and his band, the Tri-State Coalition, deliver an emotional honest bath of songs that embrace the richness of American Music - gospel, country blues and folk. Mathus' tri-state band, a handpicked group of like-minded players who make up his formidable live band, includes Matt Pierce (Arkansas), Terrence Bishop (Tennessee), and fellow Mississippians Eric Carlton and Ryan Rogers.

    Blue Healer

    Unkempt visionary, Squirrel Nut Zippers founder, former sideman for Jim Dickinson and Buddy Guy, self-proclaimed Arkansas Son-in-Law- Jimbo Mathus has lived many lifetimes, more than most of us could stomach. Now, Mathus is back with a new album, Blue Healer, recorded in Water Valley, Mississippi with Fat Possum & Big Legal Mess producer Bruce Watson.


    "It's the story of a man in a southern landscape who is swept insanely apart by internal and external winds," Mathus says of the new record. "He digs deeper and deeper into the very fabric of his reality, experiencing love and lust, despair, hope and sheer animal exhilaration on levels few ever do. He is tested in every way imaginable and achieves a sort of enlightenment - gains power and understanding of life's mysteries. Yet questions remain. He wonders if the struggle was worth it, or even real. Is he madman or sage? Con man or honest counsel? Is this autobiographical or fictional? Only the Blue Healer knows the answer to the great cosmic heebie-jeebie."

    Jack-O Is The Flipside Kid (On Sale)

    Jack Yarber began his professional music career in high school, appearing alongside high school friend and future Squirrel Nut Zippers founder Jimbo Mathus in the Corinth, Mississippi, based Johnny Vomit % the Dry Heaves. Yarber played drums in the outfit, which credited him as Johnny Goopa.


    In the summer of 1987, Yarber moved to Memphis, Tennessee, to play music with his cousin. Yarber and his cousin played together using a number of band names, eventually releasing a new-wave 7 under the name, The End. The tracks You Never Called and People Talk were recorded at Phillips Studio in Memphis, Tennessee. That vinyl single marked Yarber's first appearance on record. By 1989 the two had diverged musically and Yarber's cousin left town, effectively ending their partnership.


    Following the breakup of The End, Yarber's encounter with fellow musician Greg Cartwright led to the formation of the Compulsive Gamblers. Desptie recording two 7 albums and a handful of home recordings, the band was unable to garner record lable interest until after he success of their next band, the Oblivians. The Oblivians formed in 1993 as as side project to the Compulsive Gamblers, and included former Gambler Greg Cartwright, as well as future Goner Records founder, Eric Friedl. The members of the Oblivians all shared writing and recording responsibilities. Each member supplied vocals, guitar work, and percussion on albums and switched between instruments during live shows. The Oblivians lasted from 1993 until 1998, at which time Yarber and Cartwright left the band to reform the Compulsive Gamblers. The second incarnation of the Gamblers lasted form 1998 to 2003, when the bandmembers again went seperate ways.


    After pursuing a brief solo career, Yarber teamed up with Scott Bomar to form the Tearjerkers. As Bomar became more and more involved with film scoring, Yarber began to take a more active role in the band, ultimately taking over as lead songwriter after Bomar's departure. With Yarber in control of the group, the band was rechristened the Tennessee Tearjerkers. At the same time as Yarber was writing songs with the Tearjerkers, he was also contributing in various ways to a number of side projects including, the Knaughty Knights, the Limes, and South Filthy which included collaborations with longtime associates Walter Daniels and Monsieur Jeffrey Evans.

    Dark Night Of The Soul

    This musical DNA has been in Jimbo Mathus since birth. His father and relatives
    were all skilled musicians who filled the house with old folk, country and blues
    tunes. By the age of eight, Mathus was joining them on mandolin and by his
    teenage years had learned guitar and piano. High school led to playing in punk
    and new wave bands, the most notable being Johnny Vomit and the Dry Heaves
    and The End, with future Oblivian Jack Yarber. Post high school, Mathus studied
    Philosophy at Mississippi State University before leaving to travel around
    America. In doing so he worked various jobs, including an influential stint as
    a barge tankerman on the mighty Mississippi River. Settling in Chapel Hill,
    N.C., he drummed in the cult rock band Metal Flake Mother prior to starting
    the Squirrel Nut Zippers. This ahead-of-its-time retro roots band scored a hit
    with "Hot" and performed at President Clinton's second Inauguration and the
    1996 Summer Olympics. Following the Zippers' split, Mathus worked with such
    noted artists such as Buddy Guy and Elvis Costello, and collaborated with North
    Mississippi Allstars guitarist Luther Dickinson and Alvin Youngblood Hart in the
    South Memphis String Band. He also recorded his own albums (including one
    dedicated to his childhood nanny Rosetta Patton, the daughter of Delta blues
    icon Charley Patton).


    On most of 'Dark Night's' tracks, Mathus' acoustic guitar is surrounded by
    the electric guitar played by his longtime sideman Matt Pierce and pal Eric
    "Roscoe" Ambel. (Ambel produced 'White Buffalo' but on 'Dark Night' he focuses
    exclusively on his righteous guitar playing.) The album's raw, rock sound arose
    from the fact that most of the tracks were recorded live in the studio with
    Mathus' band, the Tri-State Coalition, which he found "very liberating way of
    doing it." Mathus feels very in synch with his bandmates (keyboardist Eric
    Carlton, drummer Ryan Rogers, guitarist Pierce and guest bassist and Drive By
    Trucker Matt Patton) since they have played together now for several years.
    "The intensity you're hearing on this album," he proclaims, "is the spirit of a
    band that is put ting it's shit on the line ."

    Rat City

    Memphis based Jack Oblivian (aka Jack Yarber) was a founding member of the garage-bands The Compulsive Gamblers and The Oblivians but he has contributed to a dizzying array of projects over the years, including Andre Williams, Jack Oblivian & the Tennessee Tearjerkers, The Cool Jerks, '68 Comeback, King Louie & His Loose Diamonds, Greg Oblivian & the Tip Tops, Jack Oblivian & The Cigarillos, The Natural Kicks and Tav Falco's Panther Burns.


    Jack Yarber began his professional music career in high school, appearing alongside high school friend and future Squirrel Nut Zippers founder Jimbo Mathus in the Corinth, Mississippi, based Johnny Vomit & the Dry Heaves. Yarber played drums in the outfit, which credited him as Johnny Goopa. After moving to Memphis, his encounter with fellow musican Greg Cartwright led to the formation of the Compulsive Gamblers. The Oblivians formed in 1993 as a side project to the Compulsive Gamblers, the members of the Oblivians shared songwriting and each member supplied vocals, guitar work, and percussion on albums, switching instruments during live shows. The Oblivians lasted from 1993 until 1998, at which time Yarber and Cartwright left the band to reform the Compulsive Gamblers. The second incarnation of the Gamblers lasted from 1998 to 2003. The Oblivians returned to the stage in 2009 for a sold-out international tour with the Gories.


    His collaborations with the cream of the Memphis music crop guarantee that the players on Rat City fit the bill like the proverbial glove. Jack Oblivian channels the spirit of proto punk as well as blues, country and junkyard rock; his songs evoke haunting, echo-y swamp boogie that will walk you down that dark alley without fear.

    Red Letter Year (Out Of Stock)

    The dozen tunes on Ani DiFranco's new studio album Red Letter Year celebrate existence, profess love and condemn religious fundamentalism with an infectious sense of glee. Joining Ani here are producer Napolitano (Joseph Arthur, The Twilight Singers, Squirrel Nut zippers) and a group of guest artists that includes long-time Ani collaborator Jon Hassell (Brian Eno, Peter Gabriel, Ry Cooder) on trumpet and the Rebirth Brass Band, which shines on the Dixieland instrumental Red Letter Year (reprise).


    Ani's band, which features bassist Todd Sickafoose (who also did the string arrangements), vibraphonist Mike Dillon and drummer Allison Miller, is a major source of Red Letter Year's singular personality. On Emancipated Minor, Miller's driving beat tethers to Ani's killer electric guitar hook, while Sickafoose's strings add an otherworldly element to the proceedings. Dillon's vibes on All This are as rich and open-minded as the little folksinger's defiant lyrics.
