SEPTEMBER  2014

Well, Goll-eee Gosh! What a summer it was! Did we ever have a time! Let's see - been zippin' around quite a bit (as usual)... Been playin' all over Quebec, Ontario, North Carolina, Georgia, New York, Kansas, Nova Scotia, Manitoba, Virginia, Florida, and gonna be hittin' Massachusettes later this week for The NEW ENGLAND SHAKE-UP!  Got big news to share -  I'll be switchin' gears in October and tryin' out something new - gonna be handling bass duties for HEAVY TRASH with my good pals Jon Spencer & Matt Verta Ray! It'll be a challenge, that's for sure, especially since I've never actually played an upright for an entire show...ever! Click here and here for some news about the tour...  Just played last weekend with the great RONNIE SPECTOR! It was awesome, but don't take MY word for it - see review here (just scroll down a bit to get past the indie rock wank)...  My band THE DING-DONGS (w/ Mark Sultan) played some super fun shows as part of the NORTON RECORDS CARAVAN OF STARS, and speaking of Norton, they will be releasing my new LP "SHOOK SHAKE" (16 big tracks!), as well a special X-Mas 45 (featuring 2 original BB-penned x-mas toons!), on December 8th - Go mark those calendars pronto!  In the meanwhile, check my FB page and IG for all the latest & up-to-date greatest of what's up in BB-land...and spy the GIGS page too - who knows, maybe I'll be in your town next?

BLOODSHOT BILL "Thunder & Lightning" LP - on Norton records!!  
 
Here's the word from Nortonville:
"He’s made scads of solid senders all over the globe, but here’s the one man racket squad’s first full length Norton platter and we think it’s his best offering to date! THUNDER AND LIGHTNING features brand new Bloodshot Bill-penned rockers like Crazy ‘Bout The Girl and The Hunt plus killer remakes of Tooter Boatman’s title thumper and Eddie Cochran’s brooding Dark Lonely Street – GET THIS ALBUM!"
Available at Norton Records, cool record shops and at shows!

- On the Hog Maw 10-inch "Homicide", There are 3 songs (Afraid To Take A Chance, Diddley Babe and Tellin' Ya Baby) credited to me that I did not write, this is a mistake on the labels part, not me trying to take credit for 3 kick-ass songs - It has been corrected for the re-press - Sorry for any confusion!
