FOLK ART & THE DEATH OF ELECTRIC JESUS VINYL RELEASE Blues For The Red Sun Records vinyl only re-issue
Delighted to be able to announce we’re reissuing our second album Folk Art & The Death Of Electric Jesus on vinyl only on the awesome label Blues For The Red Sun.
This is a limited edition release. Europeans and the rest of the world can buy from Stickman Records, Scandinavians can buy from Blues For The Red Sun, UK and Ireland can buy from us direct. Official release date is 8th Of December.
Folk Art was our second album and was originally intended to be released on vinyl but that didn’t materialise until now and we’re glad that its going out on a super cool label like Blues For The Red Sun. We hooked up with these guys when we played Bukta Fest in Norway this summer, they dug us, we dug them and the rest is history.
More Than Music "Imagine a two-headed fuzz delta garage punk fusion that comes on like an incestuous relationship between The Black Keys and The Jon Spencer Blues channeled via Rory Gallagher, Howlin' Wolf and Willie Dixon." 9/10
The Irish Times
"...grief lurks over their second album like a leaden spectre. McGibbon’s whiskey-soaked voice is a powerful tool, driving home the likes of on of Reverbio with a steely fortitude and scaling it back for the tender shimmer of Separate Ways. Occasionally recalling the shady stalk of contemporary artists such as Dan Sartain..." 4/5
"... stunning of the wall twisted punk blues - makes the Black Keys seem like a bunch of pussys..." 4/5
Vive Le Rock
A neat collection of primal electrified noise featuring lyrics that hark way back to the god-fearing era of Robert Johnson, Son House et al....
...Hip, hot, loud and likely a storm if you catch them live " 8/10
Alternative Ulster it’s dense, it’s thrashy, and oh-so-dark. We always had an inkling The Bonnevilles weren’t the tea sippin’ kind, but Folk Art & The Death of Electric Jesus presents us with a solid slab of woe sure to convince any non-believers. 8/10
Top 5 Songs of the year. “10,000″ by The Bonnevilles (Folk Art and the Death of Electric Jesus). If ZZ Top collaborated with a raw garage-rock duo, this song would be the result.

Red Wine On A Sunday Folk Art & The Death Of Electric Jesus sounds like the The Rolling Stones' Exile On Mainstreet on steroids
Folk Art & The Death Of Electric Jesus is still knocking me out. '08s Good Suits and Fightin' Boots was a great heads-up but this is exceptional. You want.
