Frankie & Jimmy - New Sliding Delta Demento Blues Record "Blues on the Brain"

The Poor Man’s Blues Brothers from Hamilton are back with their latest LP of sliding delta demento blues titled "Blues on the Brain". Frankie shreds the slide guitar and percussion while Jimmy staight hollers into a microphone and/or harmonica. Their latest LP is filled with fuzzed out blues, gospel and country tunes. Not only do they crank out bad ass versions of traditional tracks but they always come equipped with some of their very own homemade “Burn Your Blues Away” hot sauce. A must-purchase when you see Frankie & Jimmy live. Which you can do at Doors Pub in Hamilton on October 20th along with The Jesse James Medicine Show and The Ginbombs. – Kris Gies

Bluegrass punk comin' outta St.Catharines. Dirtfight is a 4 piece string band that'll inspire you to drown your sorrows in a barrel whiskey. What happens after that is up to you...and the whiskey. That's what the weekend is all about right? They have a few releases available on their bandcamp page. Including their latest single "Hitchhiking With A Bleedy Head". Its based on a true story so that fact along with the title of the song should entice you to listen to how the hell they ended up in that kind of situation. Dirtfight plays with Frankie & Jimmy and Stinkbox tomorrow (Saturday March 26th) at Homegrown Hamilton! - Kris Gies


Demento blues...ever heard of it? Well it's time you got a lesson on how it's done. Frankie & Jimmy are a demento blues duo from Hamilton. They released their album "Scream the Blues" in 2014 and it's full of traditional blues tracks done in a very original way. Frankie rips the slide guitar while Jimmy wails on the mic and harmonica. It's in your face and dirty as well as beautiful and unique. More recently these fellas have lined up a full band. They've also released some new tracks with music videos such as "My Harley". The best part about Frankie & Jimmy is their own brand of signature hot sauce. It's called "Burn the Blues Away" and as Jimmy says "it won't ruin your day but it'll ruin your next ten minutes." I've made my special hot wing sauce with it before and it was unreal. Frankie & Jimmy along with Torque Hound open up for Flamingo Báy at their Tape Release Party Friday Night (February 5th) at the Baltimore House in Hamilton. Sweet venue, sweet tunes and spicy sauce! Go.
