The fine folks over at American Songwriter have given our dear Mules “Let the Lead Fly” a wonderful review.  They also  featured one of the lead singers, Chase Heard, as a Writer of the Week.  Read the review and Chase’s interview over on their site.  And thanks again to American Songwriter!  We agree that the album deserves to be on the Best Of list for 2009.

And we are stoked to hear that Wrinkle Neck Mules, Let the Lead Fly, has made many of the world’s top albums of 2009 lists.  From Australia to Texas, bloggers, music directors, and djs  have been sending us their lists and we couldn’t be more proud.  We just got wind of this one (thanks Gregg!!) and all we can say is, WOW.  A group of  twang-lovin’ bloggers voted and compiled a top 20 list.  Nestled in between Magnolia Electric Company and Deer Tick, we find the Mules.  #17 has never looked so good.  Thanks to all those cats for their votes!  Check out the rest of the Bird List 2009 here.

Unck Tour Video, Pt. 1

Chris Unck and the Black Roses took a little jaunt through New England last month for what would be some pretty memorable shows.  Along the way, the captured some footage of their downtime as well as the shows.  Unck spent spent some time putting together this video.  Part 2 should arrive soon.  We’ll keep you posted.  But until then, check out Unck and the boys doing some sweet dance moves, some insane spinning moves on a chair, and Unck bashing his skull into a kitchen cabinet after too much spinning.  This is quality stuff people!
