I have to steal this phrase from music ruined my life. It just sums up this Piney Gir album so well.
"Jesus Wept: Spaghetti-country-punk-gospel-pop born in a thunderstorm."
And it all emanates from London. Amazing. Look out for the album.

This is the video for The Piney Gir Country Roadshows first single from their second album 'Jesus Wept' which is out on CD/Digital on Damaged Goods Records.
Straight from playing the Bob Harris Stage at Truck 13, Piney Gir and her Country Roadshow joined Clubhouse Records on the hay bales to play a fantastic version of 'Master Mistress'.

Piney Gir taunts traditional country music with a big city edge… Jesus Wept is Piney's 4th album out on Damaged Goods and is a nod to Piney's strict religious upbringing and her urge to walk the line between naughty and nice. There comes a time when everyone should question their faith and Piney (with the help of her trusty Roadshow) has channelled that into a record. A record that's a little bit country, a little bit rock 'n' roll and a whole lot of attitude.
Jesus Wept is more than a froth of petticoats in a fresh summer field, it's Ingmar Bergman's 'Seventh Seal' twisted through the eyes of a local drunk at the truck stop honky tonk. It's fun but it's dark and you don't know if you should like it so much but you do, so have another whiskey.
Previously Piney has been compared to her heroes like Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette; she's been hailed an 'indie Dolly Parton." But this album is more Emmy Lou Harris in her Graham Parsons days, it's little girl lost… it's the devil in disguise and the devil looks good. This album sees Piney grow up and face hard facts; hard facts that can make many a country song that much better. "'A tear in my beer' ain't the half of it," says Piney.
Jesus Wept is Piney's book of revelations and she's taking you with her to heaven and back.
