Heeding WoodieGuthrie's maxim, Alabama 3 have never feared the reduction of their technology.Consequently, Alabama 3 acoustic is brave enough to go out on the road armedonly with a battered acoustic guitar and harmonica, preaching Guthrie's wordthat 'this machine kills fascists.'
In homage to theclassic delta blues slide players like Mississippi Fred McDowell, Howling Wolf,John Lee Hooker and their own Rockfree Base (though not in that pantheon ofgreats), we present our own narco-acoustic slant on Alabama 3 and the musicthat has inspired us along the way.
Completewith Larry Love's gravelly ash-stained vocals, Nick Reynolds bank robbermelodies on harmonica, they provide a raucous show, which is in no wayconstrained by the boring maxim that often goes with acoustic gigs!
