Jim Shelley & Book Of Kills

What's Better? Fear or Whiskey?

I'm not sure.

Anyway, three years ago tomorrow, George Nipe III, Amy Bugg, Zack Simpson, and I met in a Harrisonburg, Virginia, restaurant to discuss the future of Fear + Whiskey. I kind of had some sort of a psychic inkling that things were about to change personally for several members of the band and, truthfully, none of us seemed to really be all that into putting the work a decent band needs to be vital and...well...decent. So it was the right call at the time to end things. Oddly enough, I think the band was morphing into yet another version of BOK near the end of its existence.  I guess I ought to upload some more tracks by the group, eh?

Man, we were in a pretty bad stretch of virtually no moisture in any shape or form for several months and now it seems like it has rained every day for the last two weeks. I can't complain. It's not as though we're facing floods or something equally dire.

Subscribers to the BOK Single of the Month Club have now enjoyed THIRTY-SIX previously unreleased/new tracks since the inception of the series 9 months ago! That's twelve more tracks already than was promised.

Tammy Wynette was born on this day in 1942. Ms. Wynette passed from this earth in 1998.
