Monday Morning Blues : John Barrett’s Bass Drum Of Death

Something new to start your Monday off. Hailing from Oxford, Mississippi, John Barrett’s Bass Drum Of Death consists of John Barrett playing an assortment of instruments himself- guitar, bass drum, vocals, shaker, tambourine, etc. It’s a raw, rootsy, footstomping, hand clapping, blend of music that’s as rooted in the traditional blues like Robert Johnson or Elmore James as it is in the current wave of artists like The White Stripes or The Black Keys.

John recorded these songs himself and is releasing them free via his myspace page as well as selling them on cassette at his live shows. Check out his myspace for some more and be sure catch him out playing live somewhere near you.
