My old band The Kentuckians is the latest to receive the YouTube treatment on the Transylvania Colony channel. This is "Gone Fishin'", a straight-ahead garage-a-billy number whose lyrics are all about Owsley Fork Reservoir, one of my secret hiding places when I needed to pull a Joe Strummer vanishing act and get the fuck out of Dodge to go depressurize and pull the big straw hat over my eyes.
Also check out "The Girl from Disputanta" and the previously-unreleased unfinished track "He's Got a Way with Women". More Kents tracks are forthcoming....

The flood of pretentious art-noise-boinkery from JSH HQ continues unabated! Just days on the heels of the new track "Circumstances" comes yet another new internet-only FREE slice of slop, entitled "International Incident". Recognize the samples and win absolutely nothing!

Some crappy old recordings of Holland's Jug Stompers (my abysmally inept jug band from 1998-1999) are now resurrected for the 21st century via the blessing/curse that is YouTube. You needn't actually listen to them; just know that they exist and that we had a really good time torturing our hippie audiences at Berea College with our slovenly, spontaneous and unrehearsed avant-garde hi-jinks. But if you insist, you may find four of them online so far: "Hello Josephine", "Come Back to your Kentucky", "Naked on the Railroad Tracks", and "Rainstorm Creeps".
And if that doesn't completely kill any curiosity you may have had about this band, you can also read some recollections and reminiscences about those grand productive days here and also here.
("Yeah, but... but... what about the JSH Combo, JSH?", I hear you cry. Well, be warned: our latest relaunch of ourselves is underway, please stand by. "Hold on", as Paul Stanley once said, "the roller coaster is about to begin.")

Okay, so it isn't the JSH Combo, but some tracks from my on-the-side deal as a purveyor of mildly pretentious avant-garde/industrial/ambient/chill sounds will be gradually oozing out on the new Transylvania Colony youtube site.
This one, "Slouching Towards Lexington", was recorded in 2008 for a never-released album for Superfrothco on the USB Flash Drive format.
However, take heart, actual JSH Combo recordings are coming to youtube soon as well....
