Big John Hamhock

The unfortunate by-product of the slow, yet sure death of MySpace is that one day soon we’re going to have to say goodbye to MySpace Music Journalism, in which notices and stories are nothing more than the tidy summation of a single page. But until that time, it’s comforting to know that Seattle’s unsigned Americana/Country/Southern Rock, corn cob pipe-smoking troubadour, Big John Hamhock, is keeping on keeping on. Judging from the twang on the likes of “Goodbye Girl” and “Death of the Spaghetti Western,” his heartbreak will taste mighty nice alongside a plate of Slim’s macaroni and a bowl of chili. With Ryan Purcell, The Brambles. CHRIS KORNELIS
