Bloodshot Bill announces new album on Goner Records. Shares “Take Me For A Ride”. Live dates confirmed

The one-man hurricane known as BLOODSHOT BILL started in his hometown of Montreal around 1998, with just a guitar and a stomp board. Since then, he’s had over 35 releases throughout Europe and North America. You know he keeps a jam-packed calendar, juggling insane live shows all over the world with the requisite studio time, where the magic often happens with a star-studded stack of cohorts including THE’sJON SPENCERKING KHAN, beat poet CHARLES PLYMELLMARK SULTANDEKE DICKERSON and SHANNON SHAW of SHANNON & THE CLAMS

Although this pistol plays well with others, there’s a reason he’s known as the greatest living one-man band. Artist JOE COLEMAN once called him “a cross between Jimmie Rodgers and Popeye,” and director JOHN WATERS says he’s “like Roy Orbison with a head wound.” There have been some movie roles (usually playing himself), and accolades, too – he has won FME’s Coup De Coeur, and has been a 3x-nominee for an AMERIPOLITAN award. 

BLOODSHOT BILL‘s whacked-out take on rockabilly stroll and early R&B begins where CHARLIE FEATHERS‘ cryptic mumble meets BOBBY LEE TRAMMELL‘s uninhibited beat and then goes scampering down dark alleys beyond genres… plus, like, it’s catchy as hell! Come Get Your Love Right Now is Bill’s seventh album, and first for Goner, after several with the great purveyors of forgotten sounds, Norton Records. Dig the unhinged howl, that loose-stringed strum, his unique beat.
