The Gravel Spreaders is what happens when a metal-head hopped up on moonshine, spite and Hank Williams III uses sweet talk and coercion to coax three musicians into wearing coveralls and playing twang instrumentals of hair-metal covers.
Thus, The Gravel Spreaders was born. Singing lead and slapping the hell out of his trusty Bandit, Bud Hole leads a motley crew consisting of mandolin masher and jaw harpist, Dr. Buck Knife, dobro-slider and gitter-picker, Uncle Mungar, and banjoleer and high-pitched harmonizer, Buzzy “secret sauce” Do-Well through a debut album consisting of 13 songs of lust, remorse, Satan, beer, and the trailer-park hits of yesteryear, blue-grass style. The result: the birth of Gravel-Billy.
With a set list that covers Johnny Cash, Ozzy, Rage Against the Machine and everything in between, the Spreaders remind us that nothing is sacred.
