True Stories in the Naked City
This album was recorded sometime in 2007 at the Cat's Eye Pub in Baltimore, MD. It is raw live and uncenssored. This particular Line up features: TT Tucker-gtr/vocal, Steven Charles Cecil-keyboard, Jammie Wilson-Drums/vocals, and Lumpy-bass. There are also two bonus studio tracks featured on this release; 'Barely Alive in Baltimore' which features the late great Jeff Sarli on Bass, and 'Roller Derby Queen' which has a guest guitar appearance by Ronnie 'Guitar' Edwards. The cover art was done by Baltimore area sketch artist/cartoonist Jonathan Eaton. T. T. Tucker Bum Rush Band was formed in Baltimore in 1990. Their unique sound falls somewhere between Johnny Cash and Captain Beefhart, with some Root Boy Slim thrown in for good measure. For more than 15 years T.T.Tucker has flourished in obscurity, making friends along the way, playing his special brand of American music his fans have grown to love. From the Country & Western tradition to Rock and Blues, musical influences as diverse as Waylon Jennings, George Jones, John Prine, and Stan Ridgeway, among others too numerous to list, T. T. Tucker blends a multitude of influences together for a memorable live music experience. T. T. Tucker and the Bum Rush Band have gathered a dedicated fan base and loyal local following in both Baltimore and Brooklyn, NY. T. T. Tucker and the Bum Rush Band refuse to be labeled. You can call them roots, cow punk, Americana, rockabilly, swamp boogie, alter country, whatever you like. Their original mesh of these and other styles personify American music, plain and simple.
