Dixie Witch

Well, fucking sue me, I am staying around the "D"
shelf for a minute or two, Dixie Witch gave us
some totally bad-ass southern stoner metal ala Corrosion of Conformity or Alabama Thunderpussy, and fuck me sideways, what could be wrong with that?

From what yer uncle can acertain, they have released four slamming CD's...three of which I have, so you know i will be making a request for numero 4......anyway, Dixie Witch are more or less bassist/vocalist CC, drummer Trinedad Leal, guitarist Clayton Mills, and since the early 2000's they have seriously kicked out the noise (NOTE: I always pretty much hated the Lynyrd Skynyrd/Molly Hatchett type of "Southern Rock", if you liked it, so be it, but rarely did it do it for me...BUT the recent wave of "southern" stoner-type bands are A-OK by me.......just my worthless opinion, and if you don't like it, well, hey, YOU retire at age 52 (and I promised I wouldn't do that anymore!)

So, dig, pig.....they debuted in 2001 with "Into the Sun"...a very fine album that any hard rock lover should have on hand. It's nothing SPECTACULAR, but what it is is a damn fine solid collection of hard guitar riffing, highlighted by the workout "CC".....good album, don't miss it.....

Thier second release, 2003's "One Bird Two Stones" is even a bit better, "Get Busy" and "Going South" for all thte world sound like they could have come off of a C of C or Alabama Thunderpussy album, and, once again, there is not a GODDAMN thing wrong with that.....hard rocking album, smoke you a "j", or drink a 6-er, or down some kratom, or whatever, and this bad boy will sound like a fucking classic.

Release numero three was 2006's "Smoke and Mirrors", also a fine collection of hard rocking tracks (if ya haven't figgered it out yet, that is KINDA what yer uncle likes!)....though all three of these discs are pretty damn good, this one may be the best...a bit shorter songs but they still rock like a MOFO, check "Gunfight" and "Shoot the Moon" for examples.........

OK, they released an album in 2011, it's called "Let It Roll" and I have never heard a note of it......could be the greatest album in music history, or it might be the worst for all I know.....Mark Eveleigh, who is apparently missing in action, do you have this one? If not, does anyone else? wouldn't mind filling out my Dixie Witch stash even if the recent release sucks....No reason to think it does of course, these three albums rock the house and you (if you are a fan of southen stoner rock, and who isn't) will love them like they were your own children.
