Scott H. Biram – 8th April 2013

Rock ‘n’ Roll ain’t pretty and neither is Scott H. Biram. This self proclaimed ‘Dirty Old One Man Band’ successfully lashes together blues, hillbilly and country to raucous punk and godless rock. His singing, yodeling, growling, leering and brash preachin’ and hollerin’ is accompanied by sloppy riffs and licks from his 1959 Gibson guitar and pounding backbeat brought forth by his amplified left foot. The remainder of this one-man band consists of an unwieldy combination of beat-up amplifiers and old microphones strung together by a tangled mess of guitar cables. Years of non-stop touring has honed his assault to a fine edge; his wide-eyed throw downs in the First Church of Ultimate Fanaticism which routinely leads giddy followers to a fiery baptism. On stage Scott is a man possessed, spitting and snarling like a Mississippi juke-joint shouter on a moonshine bender. His barbarous exorcism of Depression-era blues has made Biram a rising star.

Scott H. Biram won’t die. On May 11th, 2003, one month after being hit head-on by an 18-wheeler at 75 MPH, he took the stage at The Continental Club in Austin, Texas in a wheel chair – I.V. still dangling from his arm. With 2 broken legs, a broken foot, a broken arm and 1 foot less of his lower intestine, Biram unleashed his trademark musical wrath on the crowd that night.

Austin’s finest blues-punk rocker Scott H. Biram also has two of his songs featured on the hit FX television show ‘Sons Of Anarchy. The songs, “Still Drunk, Still Crazy, Still Blue” and “Lost Case of Being Found,” are both used to soundtrack the lives of the tight-nit outlaw motorcycle gang the show is about.

Scott plays Myrtleville on Monday 8th April 2013 at 8pm (doors 7.30pm) before adjourning to the Crane Lane in Cork city where he will play a midnight show.
