The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band - The Whole Fam Damnily
Lately I’ve caught a new musical virus. To some a weird step, for others a quite natural one. Yes boys and girls, I’m talking about the good ol’ country music! Hitting it off with the likes of Johnny Cash and Hank Williams III, I’m slowly discovering more and more of this brilliant style of music. Perhaps it’s because I’m from the South of this country myself and considered a hillbilly by the rest of the country, or maybe it’s the way I can relate to the lyrics in this genre. I don’t know, I just fucking love it. Enough side-information about me, let’s review The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band and their new record The Whole Fam Damnily.
Even though my knowledge of the genre is still quite limited, it’s not hard to hear that The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band is a high quality country trio. The band features the bearded charismatic Reverend Peyton on acoustic guitar and vocals, his wife Breezy playing washboard (yes, that is an instrument) and his cousin Jayme on drums. The trio plays in a nice horse-riding tempo, plucking strings like a maniac while singing stories about a variety of hillbilly subjects and such. I feel like one of the strongest assets of this style of music is the story being told in a song, and The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band is no exception to this. Just listen to the reverend sing about his mama’s fried potatoes, being broke and the good ol’ days and you’ll know what I mean.
Even though I didn’t get into this band as fast as into some of the other country music I listen to, I must say that the more I listened to it, the more it grew on me. By now the occasional shiver down my spine and accompanying goosebumps are no exception anymore when I listen to The Whole Fam Damnily. I feel bad about missing their European tour just recently, but I’ve heard nothing but good stories about that, which means this band can also convince live. Next time I’ll be there for sure. If you’re looking to get into this type of music, this band might just be the one to start it with. Otherwise you’ll end up with it one way or another.
