OCR SONG ON VIRTUAL VINYL SAMPLER

Taken from the new OCR album “Early In The Morning”, the original 2bad Jim song ‘Angel Of Death’ now features on New York City’s Factory Fast Records virtual vinyl 4 track sampler.
This is a song as tragic as Hamlet, this is the finest Chicken Music. The OCR use all 3 guest riders and add harp (Tris Hooley), banjo (Simon Faulks) and girl (Sarah Burchell) to make the definitive two-minute doomed-from-the-start ballad.

Thursday 4th September sees The OCR boys play an opening set for the amazing ‘Toy Hearts’..
After having made music together for over a decade, the core family trio of The Toy Hearts, sisters Hannah (vocals & mandolin), and Sophia (guitar & vocals) together with their father Stewart (Banjo, Dobro, Steel) decamped from their native Birmingham UK, to spend the whole of summer 2013 in the USA, working in and around the bars and honky tonks of the live music capital of the world Austin, Texas.
With four studio albums already under their belts already the band spent their time in the lone star state developing the western swing elements of their live show and keeping their musical chops up by sitting in with some of Austin’s finest talents, Toni Price, The Jitterbug Vipers, Whit Smith & Dave Biller.

OCR have also confirm the support to ‘The Howlin Brothers’, Tuesday 21st October..
The Howlin’ Brothers are a three-piece string band that brings heart and passion into every performance. Their upbeat shows are heavy with original and traditional music, featuring the sounds of slide banjo, harmonica and old-time fiddle. More American Beauty-era Dead than picking-and-grinning Scruggs redux, the Brothers steer the current fascination with string-band hominess back toward rock music. The complexity created by having three lead voices puts them on a continuum with the Band, as well.
And yet the Howlin’ Brothers – whose new albumTrouble is out on producer Brendan Benson’s Readymade Records  – sound like nothing so much as themselves, no small feat anymore. Credit their trio of composers, each of whom sings his own lyrics. That gives Trouble a thrilling episodic variety.
