The Whiskey Shambles have been around for about 18 months, but they have the heart, soul, sound, and accolades that one would attribute to band with a longer history. In 2013 they were nominated for a Cincinnati Entertainment Award for Best Blues Band, and now they have another honor to add to the list: Winners of the 2014 Northeast Ohio Blues Association (NEOBA) Blues Challenge.  The Whiskey Shambles scored highest among many other well-known blues acts on Saturday, April 26 in Canton, OH, and are now set to compete in the International Blues Challenge (IBC) in Memphis, TN in January 2015.

Whiskey Shambles’ cover of blues classic will haunt your dark thoughts

In December, Cincinnati-based “Garage Rock/Basement Blues” quartet, The Whiskey Shambles, released their latest song to the Interwebs…  “Mother Earth.”  Originally written and made famous by Memphis Slim in 1951 as a plinky, slow, twelve-bar blues piano number with a down-tempo feel and solemn lyrics, The Shambles have taken the unusual descending chromatic and replicated it with a slide guitar riff, played on a fuzzed-out and overdriven acoustic(!).  Shambles’ bassist Brother James plays an adaptation of Slim’s left hand on his five-string bass — also slightly overdriven and gritty — which adds a deep tone to the entire piece, and helps underscore Aaron Tyree’s steadily growing and increasingly manic drum part.  The result adds a heavy and somewhat psychedelic rock feel to a song that always had weighty lyrics, but only mildly dark instrumentation in its original and most-well known recordings.
