Whiskeydick - The Bastard Sons Of Texas, Album Pre-order!

Whiskeydick - The Bastard Sons Of Texas, Album Pre-order!
At the lonesome crossroads where country and metal intersect, stand two swaggering badasses holding acoustic guitars. They're not interested in your soul they have plenty of soul already.
Cult favorites WhiskeyDick blow minds with a double barrel blast of dreadnaught shredding and hillbilly bellowing that makes you want to knock back a shot, stand up tall, and holler "Oh-hell-yeehaw!"

The Fort Worth duo carry on the Texas traditions of super-powered guitar slinging and clever songwriting that make lone star music a worldwide curiosity, except Reverend Johnson will remind you more of Dimebag Darrell than Billy Gibbons and Fritz remains more lyrically akin to David Allen Coe than Robert Earl Keen.

Be sure to click some of the images below for our exclusive package deals for this album release on July 28th! The Bastard Sons Of Texas belt buckle is a limited edition and only available with the album pre-order.

Need Some Great Music Advice, Listen To Steve Vai on Renman Music & Business Youtube Channel

Need Some Great Music Advice, Listen To Steve Vai on Renman Music & Business Youtube Channel

Often while working when I can also listen to music or podcasts. Many times I listen to TED talks and been lately listening to the channel Renman Music & Business on youtube. He has a great conversation with Steve Vai about the music industry and how to create your own path. Stoked to hear that Steve Vai is DIY as it comes and has some sound wisdom. Make life happen and quit waiting for others to do it for you.

New Custom Belt Buckles From Rusty Knuckles

Shovelhead belt buckle design from Rusty Knuckles

Creating new items is just something we wake up pondering over. It could be a new tshirt design, album cover, a belt buckle or maybe a new style of motorcycle bag. Whatever it may be, we labor for hours thinking everything through and thinking on what might be a great new product.

Order Motobunny's new album

Check out the review on Blurt Magazine

"There aren’t too many Iggy Pop-influenced pop/punk bands out there with a full-time keytarist and co-frontwomen, but Motobunny somehow manage to make it work.

 It would be easy to dismiss the band as a novelty if they didn’t have the songs to back it up, but as their self-titled debut proves, they’ve got about a dozen.

The band was formed backstage at an Iggy gig a few years ago, when members from The Wooly Bandits and The Love Me Knots decided to merge. Collectively, the members have shared the stages with everyone from Nirvana and The Damned to Pearl Jam and X, but their album has a much more glam-punk vibe to it. From the Joan Jett-like rocker “Shake Me” to the just what it sounds like track “My Boyfriend is a Ghost” the band is distorted guitars with plenty of synths and hooks.

There are a few weaker tracks here and there, but ultimately, the record is an experiment in glitter and grease that ends well.

How To Create A Unique And Custom Belt Buckle

How To Create A Unique And Custom Belt Buckle
Making anything from scratch requires a lot of preparation and an immense amount of research. A good while back, we got the itch to start creating our own line of belt buckles. After purchasing a really cool heavyweight bronze buckle from a street vendor in Seattle, I was looking at the design and kept thinking I can do this. That simple notion, sent me on a vast research quest reading upon lost wax casting, sand casting, metal etching and also machining metals in a variety of ways.

"One could get lost in the family tree that has sprouted Motobunny so let's just summarize: members of The Love Me Nots and The Woolly Bandits have combined to produce a double frontwoman glam meets garage meets rockabilly meets pop band that's as hard to resist as they are to define. Legend has it that the band got together after meeting up at an Iggy Pop concert, and their sound reflects it. "Shake Me" and "Let's Go Out" are as catchy as any Top 40 Taylor Swift hit, but with a Motley Crue flair. When Gwen Stefani took a break from No Doubt and became a pop star, that's kind of what Motobunny feels like -- like some rock 'n' roll chicks who wanted to get their Dance on.

Looks Like The El Diablo Run Was A Damn Good Time



Motorcycle runs are a place where good times are to be had and ridin' bro's can be met that will be with ya for years to come. Certain events always bring together everyone and when it is a mission to hit the road and to be a part of an event with epic riding territory, it makes for an even better memory. Glad to see the folks out west had another great El Diablo Run.
