Dutch Masters (2003-2010) were Eric Oblivian (Oblivians, Bad Times), Scott Rogers (Jenny Jeans, Perfect Fits), Talbot Adams (Royal Pendletons, Jenny Jeans, Black and Whites) and Punk Rock Pat. The Memphis, TN/Oxford, MS, group released a single on Goner Records in 2004. All In The Wires is a collection of the unreleased recordings The Dutch Masters completed for the Goner single, plus a couple of live tracks. The "studio tracks" were recorded by Jack Oblivian at the Goner Record store on an analog 4-track machine. All In The Wires contains a live version of "Fire Detector," which appeared years later on The Oblivians album, Desperation.
During their seven-year run, The Dutch Masters played with Dead Moon at the Chicago Black Out and Goner Fest. They also released a track, "8 Ball Deluxe," on a Multiball Magazine compilation. All In The Wires was pressed on black vinyl and is limited to 500 copies.

Spacecase Records (SCR008)
Talbot Adams has slowly become a solo artist over the last few years. Prior to going solo, Talbot's played in a number of bands: The Royal Pendletons, The Darkest Hours, Preacher's Kids, The Jenny Jeans, Dutch Masters, The Checkmates, and The Black and Whites.Talbot has played on recordings for Goner, Norton, Shattered, DMR and Spacecase Records. Adams has been lucky enough to play with members of The Oblivians, The Gories and The Neckbones.
Talbot Adams was born and raised in New Orleans. He lived in New York City for five years, where he was lucky enough to intern at Matador Records before returning home and finally settling in Oxford, MS, where he currently lives. Talbot still misses New Orleans, but likes North Mississippi as well.
He has a new full-length album of his own coming out in March of 2014 on Spacecase Records. Talbot has been recently performing, at times with just voice and guitar, and at other times with a group of friends that back him up.

We are now offering Monsieur Jeffrey Evans and His CC Riders' self titled album, Ross Johnson and Jeffrey Evans' Vanity Session and Axemen's Sac Tap Nut Jam for digital download through Revolver/Midheaven.
Vanity Session was the result of a year-long residency Ross Johnson and Jeffrey Evans held at The Buccaneer club in Memphis, TN. The album was recorded on March 21, 2008, at Zebra Ranch Studio in North Mississippi by the legendary Jim Dickinson with the help of former Reigning Sound drummer, Greg Roberson.
Ross Johnson has been a staple of the Memphis music scene for more than three decades. He's probably best known for his ranting on Alex Chilton's seminal solo record, Like Flies On Sherbert (Ross is the Baron). Johnson was also the original drummer for The Panther Burns—although he missed the Behind The Magnolia Curtain sessions due to drunkenness. Now retired from his job as a librarian, Ross currently spends most days drinking, ranting, writing about music and playing drums (typically in that order). Like Don Ayler's trumpet playing, Ross is unrestrained—at a high volume, he'll tell you everything you wanted to know (and more) about Memphis music.
Jeffrey Evans came to Memphis in the mid '80s, following the path to Sun Records. A devotee of Charlie Feathers, Evans influenced many with his band The Gibson Bros. Alongside the late Jack Taylor, Evans fronted '68 Comeback throughout the '90s (and produced Tav Falco and The Panther Burns excellent return to form, Panther Phobia, in 2000). He currently fronts Jeffrey Evans and His Southern Aces.
Vanity Session features Ross and Jeff switching off on lead vocals; at their request, Jim Dickinson showed them how he performed "I've Had It" for Like Flies On Sherbert. Thankfully Evans recorded the song and it appears on the record. Backing Ross and Jeff are Greg Roberson (drums), John Paul Keith (guitar), Adam Woodward (piano and organ) and Jeremy Scott (bass).
Vanity Session is highly recommended for fans of Like Flies on Sherbert, the film Stranded in Canton, The Gibson Bros., and vanity records (because that's what it is).
