Support J.Tex & The Volunteers new album

CDCOVERx500Raising money to fund the bands new album “Old Ways vs. New Days”!

My name is Jens Einer – a.k.a. J. Tex. I’m the singer and songwriter in my band J. Tex & The Volunteers, and also play the guitar, banjo and violin. I was born in Detroit, in the USA, but I grew up in Copenhagen, Denmark. I have been playing different instruments since I was six.

The band and I have been working on our next album, and we need your help to finish it. It’s firmly rooted in American folk music but with a twist. Taking instruments from American folk music and torn up beats, we’ll mix European and American flavors to produce a new take on a classic sound. It’s a strong, warm and friendly album for respect to friends and families. The album will be called “Old Ways – New Days”, and with your help we hope to raise enough money to get it done.

ToughMFs – Sweet Anneli 7” vinyl singel.
Denna skiva är gjord av kärlek till Skitig Rock ‘n’ Roll!!

The ToughMFs är fyra kompisar baserade i södra Kalifornien, USA, som spelade in dessa två rykande låtar för denna singel på HepTown Records.

Inspelningen gjordes live i den legendariska studion, Rancho De La Luna, i Joshua Tree, Kalifornien.

Medlemmar:

Dean Micetich från DiCE Magazine, The Black Tibetans tar hand om sången och leadgitarren

Dave Catching från Masters Of Reality, ex. Queens of the Stone Age håller energin uppe med sin kompgitarr

Brian BOC från Eagles Of Death Metal driver på med sitt basspel.

Joey Castillo, också från Eagles Of Death Metal och Queens of the Stone Age, innan i Wasted Youth, Danzig och med Mark Lannegan, får allt att hålla ihop med sitt finurliga trumspel!

 

Lady Luck Combo – ”Peggy Lee” vinyl singel EPLL_PeggyLee_7vinyl_VINYL_LO
Med rötterna i Rockabilly och rock´n´roll  så rör de sig även mellan andra närbesläktade genrer och skapar något helt eget!!
Singelns titelspår ”Peggy Lee” är inget annat än en knockout i ett rasande tempo!

Lady Luck Combo bildades 2009 och är baserade i Malmö/Helsingborg. En Trio med klassisk sättning, Gitarr, Kontrabas och Trummor, som siktar högt med sitt distinkta och aggressiva sound! Med över 200 gigs på sitt CV så har de redan gjort intryck på den skandinaviska rockabillyscenen.

J. Tex – Misery 180g Vinyl(12")

September 25, 2009 Leave a comment

J. Tex – Misery 180g Vinyl(12″) LIMITED 500 Copys

Looking back on summer 2008, Rob from Heptown Records and I had the idea of making a solo album of the music I had been playing on our road trips together the last few years. Rob and his great gang of volunteers, them selling Hot Rod magazines, blue jeans, t–shirts and music, we call it the “Heptown lifestyle”, and me playing the music. And we were selling my albums on these trips, meeting folks that loved the true country sound. We always had a place to stay and a warm beer to drink.

When possible we brought along my band, J.Tex & the Volunteers, but much too often the costs ran too high, so going solo or as a duo proved to be an inexpensive way of getting out there meeting folks, playing the songs and having great fun.

By 2008 J.Tex & the Volunteers had already made two albums with Heptown Records. This time we wanted to catch that special summer night feeling we had experienced, a feeling that includes music, dust, old-time cars and a great crowd. And to make it just right, we found the greatest little studio located in an old schoolhouse near Lund, Sweden. The studio is now known as “House on the Hill” with Carl Granberg as the man in charge.

These twelve songs were recorded in three days. I asked my best and oldest buddy, Frank Borg, bass/banjo player and singer-songwriter, to cross the sea that third and final day and join in on this album. Andi Almqvist, a Swedish singer-songwriter from Malmö and also a dear friend, came by, making the song “Union Army” sparkle with his voice and musical talent. To make the day just perfect, Svante Sjöblom joined the party and was thrown in on “One of these days”. All in all, this album was made in the true family & good friends way. I hope you will enjoy this album. And that not only this album, but all music you may listen to, will shine on you and make every day a better day.

Music Rules!

J.Tex
