3 Chords & the Truth: As I was saying. . . .
Now, where were we?
Last I remember, I was mentioning something along the lines of "the missus is sick as a dog and I ain't feeling so hot myself. Let's curl up under something warm, grab a hot cuppa tea, put on 3 Chords & the Truth and make the world go away."
That was a month ago. For much of that month's time, I was feeling something short "ain't feeling so hot myself." A bad case of influenza -- sounds classier than "the flu" -- that smoothly transitions into bronchitis (they shared a single set of coughing fits) will do that to you.
BUT THAT was then, and this is now.
I'm back, the coughing fits are under control for the most part, and I can put together a whole extra-good episode of 3 Chords & the Truth now without having to stop in the middle of a sentence to cough up a lung. I've decided to celebrate the occasion with a big show on the Big Show.
So, once again, where were we?
As I recall, I had introduced you to the exquisite music of a fine Omaha act, Brad Hoshaw and the Seven Deadlies.
This week, It's True!
It's true that It's True, led by the astoundingly talented Adam Hawkins, just might be the best thing going here in Seattle on the Missouri. Why are all the best bands unsigned anymore, and why is it so hard to lay hands on actual CDs from them?
I guess that's why God invented iTunes.
ANYWAY, we'll have a couple of gems from It's True on the show this week, along with lots and lots of other gems from. . . . Hang on. That would just ruin the joy of discovery for you, wouldn't it?
Well, I'll tell you what. You just go up to the 3 Chords & the Truth audio player at the top of the blog, sit back, grab a cold something and indulge yourself. Or you can just download the finest music this side of Council Bluffs right here.
Come to think of it, I think I'll do the same. While not coughing . . . too much.
It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.
