BLACK DIAMOND HEAVIES
EVERY DAMN TIME (ALIVE)
BLACK DIAMOND HEAVIES are a unique punk-ass blues duo from Tennessee, a soulful rock'n'roll outfit born in the junkyards of the South.
The Heavies are John Wesley Myers (bass keys, Fender Rhodes, organ, and voice) and Van Campbell (drums and vocals).
Van is from Louisville, Kentucky and comes from a family of bourbon distillers. He also holds a degree in Mandarin Chinese and has drummed professionally on three continents.
John Wesley, the son of a Baptist preacher, was born in Port Arthur, Texas, and has been shaking his "testimony" all over the South, playing gospel as a child until the devil got hold of him.
Although they hail from the Southern States of America the Heavies see themselves as vagrant citizens of the world.
They have spent the last two years on the road, living in vans, and sleeping on floors.
They bring their countless hours of live experience onto their debut album; EVERY DAMN TIME is a punk rock album full of sweat, noise and soul.
Another amazing duo from the label that brought you the debut albums of the BLACK KEYS and TWO GALLANTS.
