BLOODKIN TO RELEASE FIVE- DISC BOX SET,
ONE LONG HUSTLE TO BE RELEASED ON JANUARY 29
Bloodkin is celebrating their silver anniversary with a five- disc anthology box set. One Long Hustle will be released January 29, 2013 on Terminus Records. The compilation is comprised of previously unreleased material from 1998 – 2012 and was produced by David Barbe (Drive-By Truckers, Sugar) and Daniel Hutchens. Guests include JoJo Hermann, Dave Schools, Todd Nance and the late Michael Houser from Widespread Panic and John Keane.
Bloodkin’s list of accomplishments and the respect that is shown from other artists convincingly tells the story of how widely unappreciated they are. From providing musical backing to Allen Ginsberg’s spoken word performances in their early days, to collaborating with Moe Tucker and Sterling Morrison from the Velvet Underground, to penning numerous songs that have been covered by Widespread Panic, to being noted by Patterson Hood as one of his personal favorites, to most recently, cultivating a working friendship with iconic saxophonist Bobby Keys who regularly joins them onstage.
Daniel Hutchens and Eric Carter have known each other since elementary and will embark on a national tour to support the release of One Long Hustle in January of 2013. They are also writing material that will soon land them back in the studio to continue to record the inevitable flow of music that has sustained them over an amazing 25-year career of creativity.
Below is a preview of a documentary being made about the band.
