BOB THORNTON ANDTHE BOXMASTERS' "THE POOR HOUSE" PREMIERES
BOB THORNTON AND THE BOXMASTERS' video "The Poor House" premiered
on GAC - TV on May 6th. "The Poor House" is the lead track
from The Boxmasters self-titled 2CD set to be released on Sawmill/Vanguard
Records June 10th.
The Boxmasters ' (W.R. 'Bud' Thornton, J.D. Andrew
and Mike Butler) sound combines the influence of the Beatles, The Rolling
Stones, Kinks, and the Animals, fused with Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard,
Buck Owens, Roy Acuff and Hank Williams. Fashioned after a 1960's-era
mod band (including matching suits and ties!), The Boxmasters' upbeat
rhythms and infectious arrangements contrast sardonically with the very
dark themes they explore lyrically. The tension that the disparity between
the subject matter and the music creates lends itself to a truly unique
musical experience that could only be produced by The Boxmasters.
The Boxmasters will begin a cross-country tour in July. Specific tour
dates to be announced shortly.
