“COUNTRY MUSIC AT ITS UGLIEST”
See you at FEST tonight, brothers and sisters! You can catch us tonight at Durty Nelly’s Pub, 11:20pm – 12:00am! We will be going on an indefinite hiatus following this performance, so make it a point to come check us out—if anything, to see what costume Reverend Liaison will be scaring up this year!
Here is a really cool video of our entire set from June 06, 2013, at High Dive (Gainesville, Florida), shot by our good buddy Andrew Chadwick.
“Country Music at Its Ugliest”: a review of the Waylon Thornton/Ex-Boogeymen split, Only Darkness Holds the Power:
In the liner notes, there are pictures of a bunch of nice looking people. Supposedly, these are the members of the two bands. Having listened to the CD, I know that this is a ruse. This music is clearly made by backwoods cannibals who would just as soon eat my eyeballs out than smile at me. This is country music at its ugliest. They probably recorded this while sucking marrow from the bones of the rats they found in Hank William’s grave. Also, the song “I Want to Be Dave Vanian” is really fucking creepy in like eight million ways. —Razorcake

REVEREND LIAISON SAYS HE’S LEAVING EX-BOOGEYMEN!

After four years of “Devil Rock” revelry, Ex-Boogeymen singer Reverend Liaison has decided that following tomorrow night’s show he will be leaving the band he helped start. He’s says he’s had an interesting experience and hopes that everyone who has ever supported Ex-Boogeymen in the past will go on doing so with or without his presence, as he plans on pursuing other outlets. He wishes his fellow Ex-Boogeymen the best.
With that in my mind, we are still looking forward to our show tomorrow night in Gainesville, FL, at the High Dive, with Jacuzzi Boys, III Bones and—just added—The Young Hookers! Unfortunately, drummer Justo Walker will be unable to play =( However, Mercy’s friend, Mark Reese, is graciously filling in—on one day’s notice, having never played with Ex-Boogeymen before! Should be interesting! So get your tickets here, and come say goodbye to the Reverend!
Also: Go see our buds Post Teens the next night in Gainesville, FL, in the Backyard at Boca Fiesta/Palomino, with local legends Radon and reputable newbies Anemones! It’s a benefit for a little girl’s heart operation, so go!
And check out the new EP from our friends Alien Summer, which was produced by Waylon Thornton! And follow them!
Your saviors, your masters of ceremony…
