It's Southern, the debut demo album from Country Kitchen, the house band at American Rambler. Country Kitchen draws on everything from the Who and the Beatles to Black Sabbath and the Drive-By Truckers to write songs about drinking, family, and a demonic hound haunting the Delta. The usual stuff. Is the album good? Does it suck? Take a listen and find out!
In the meantime, Country Kitchen is available for weddings, children's parties, and bar and bat mitzvahs.

Jack Lauterback got his start as a writer, blogging about his adventures in the Richmond bar scene. His funny and honest articles about bartending, drinking, and relationships led to a column in Style Weekly, where he stayed for years. Now, you can find him on the Richmond morning radio program he co-hosts with Melissa Chase at 103.7 FM. Colin and Jack talk about the Richmond bar scene, the writing life, and some jobs that aren't worth doing. It's happy hour at American Rambler!
WS "Fluke" Holland is Johnny Cash's one and only drummer. After playing drums several years with Carl Perkins, Fluke joined Cash's band, which he never left until Cash stopped touring in the late 1990s. As one of the original members of the Tennessee Three, Fluke talks with Colin about the early days at Sun, discovering Bob Wootton, and what he's going to do on his 100th birthday.
