Telecaster supremo Bill Kirchen's latest release Hammer Of The Honky Tonk Gods is a classic mix of twang and Americana.
Recorded in London with his former bandleader Nick Lowe and other UK New Wave musicians this is an example in keeping the music simple and letting the feeling do the talking.
Bill Kirchen has been around for years, and is not one of the fashionable guitarists that would head a six-string who's who, but this is countrified rock at its best. The virtuoso guitarist is still usually remembered by audiences for his work with the 70s renegade country-rock band, Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen.
Hammer of the Honky-Tonk Gods finds Bill Kirchen taking a comfortable trip with a bunch of friends getting together to jam and have some fun.
