Something In The Water.

The title of this blog was inspired by conversations that I've had with people from Memphis and even people from other parts of the world that would describe the sounds of southern punk and hardcore. When ever I listen to a band like Copout, or His Hero Is Gone, that conversation comes up.

This blog is dedicated to all bands from Little Rock and Memphis (although all other bands from the south maybe discussed). In my humble opinion Little Rock and Memphis hardcore/punk bands have rarely been talked about or seen. If you are in one of the bands and have stories or pictures to add let me know. A lot of the music that is posted is out of print, but if you ever find it buy it. I do not make any money off of this, this is to turn people on to stuff that has never really gotten much recognition. If you are in one of the bands and have a problem with your stuff being up here let me know and I will remove it

Lucky Old Sun

Lucky Old Sun basically picked up where Red 40 left off. There are a lot of movie samples from the outsiders and another movie sample which I don't know the name of. (perhaps someone out there knows). I listened to this demo a lot and I'm happy to finally put this up here so please check it out. Like a lot of stuff on here I did clean up the noise of the recording as this came off of a cassette.
I actually got a copy of this demo from a person I went to college with (thanks nick s RIP .) Lucky Old Sun was formed after Red 40 had broken up in 1996. Lucky Old Sun consisted of Ben Nichols Bass/Vocals,Blair Pearce Guitar, and Charles Levingston on drums. The band only released this demo and played only a hand full of shows before disbanding. When I moved to Memphis for school (and to live) Ben was playing bass for Pezz for awhile. After Ben's stint in Pezz, Lucero formed.
