Albums Of The Week: Nine Pound Hammer | When The S#​*​t Goes Down

The Kentucky crew hit the sweet spot between rock, punk, garage & country again.

320

Fueled by boredom and worry, Nine Pound Hammer fired it up during the dark winter of 2020 to record their new LP When The Sh*t Goes Down. Ramones producer Daniel Rey braved the Kentucky elements to help the band conjure up 13 new Cowpunk Spirituals that are guaranteed to cure what ails ya!

Blindly driving an old scrapheap with a stuck accelerator, fueled by potent trailer-park hootch and heading straight for hell, Nine Pound Hammer roared out of Lexington, Kentucky, belching mother-humping bourbon-soaked rock’n’roll and a sardonic swig of Southern culture that makes Jason & The Scorchers sound like a Sunday afternoon tea society and The Cramps like fussy stylists.”
