Mark ‘Porkchop’ Holder :: Death And The Blues

by

Mark Porkchop-CoverBegin 2017 verscheen Let It Slide van Mark ‘Porkchop’ Holder, een van de oprichters van de punk/bluesband Black Diamond Heavies. Iemand omschreef het als een weekendje uit van Rolling Stones, Howlin’ Wolf en Billy Gibbons. En iedereen had speed gebruikt. Holder laat er geen gras over groeien en komt minder dan een jaar later al met zijn tweede soloplaat: Death And The Blues. Nog net wat harder, nog net wat strakker. Acht eigen nummers, drie covers waaronder een fenomenale versie van Junior Kimbrough’s Sad Days And Lonely Nights. Superieure lawaaimuziek.

Mark “Porkchop” Holder originally turned the blues on its head more than a decade ago as a founding member of punk/blues band Black Diamond Heavies. While he’s been tearing up juke joints, festivals and dive bars since then with his own fiery brand of the blues, it wasn’t until earlier this year that the Tennessee musician released his own debut solo album, Let It Slide, an acclaimed effort that No Depression described as, “…fire in a barrel. If the Rolling Stones camped with Howlin’ Wolf and Billy Gibbons on trucker speed for the weekend with a fuzz pedal, this would be its precious procreation.”
