Biography

Crunchy guitar and driving rhythms abound, this is music for driving or getting down and dirty… or both at the same time! Indie-Blues-Rock duo King Pug was a project started by hyperactive English guitarist, singer, producer and songwriter Dave Wilkinson as an outlet for a back catalogue of songs that didn’t seem to fit with his other various musical incarnations. Heavily based in the blues with driving rhythms provided by fellow country man Caspar St. Charles.

King Pug could be compared to The Black Keys and The White Stripes due to their duo format… if you were lazy! But with a British touch notable in Wilkinson’s voice and writing, and a long, varied career as session musicians, the duo certainly add their own flavour to the mix, enough to carve them their own niche in the “power duo” scene.

Their debut E.P. “Borneo Mint Shave” was written, produced, mixed and mastered by Wilkinson in his own “D.I.Y.” studio and within one week of it’s release on Bandcamp they were signed to Black and Tan Records in The Netherlands. And these dogs are fast !!!! just two months after the release of their debut they strike agian with “Water Pressure” – a three track E.P. Harder hitting, grittier and groovier than ever, this is Rock music you can dance to, Blues music that won’t give you the blues!

Ernie Payne – Coercion Street (2004)

Biography

Ernie Payne was an African American musician from Louisiana’s Acadia Parish. His family was large and everyone learnt early to pitch in and help with chores and household duties. Their strict, religious, hardworking ethic thought ‘music’ essential to a quality life, but hardly something to pursue as a way to earn a living.

“Somebody singing is my first memory. Music celebrated and music mourned. Everybody in my family loved some kind of music and they shared it with me. My music attempts to carry on that idea of brotherhood and sharing.”

At the core of almost every song are Payne’s vocals which are extremely strong, yet soothing. The stories told in the songs are intimate and visual and as he is singing he makes the listener feel as if he is talking to them personally, directly and one on one. Ernie’s debut CD (Coercion Street) was released on Black and Tan Records in April 2004. The record was played all over the world and it got rave reviews in among other BLUES WAX and BLUES REVUE. During his European tours Ernie visited Holland, France, Ireland, Belgium and the UK. He was invited to do several support shows for ROBERT PLANT both in the UK and the USA.

Ernie spend almost his entire life on writing and improving his songs. He always dreamed of performing and touring and just when this finally started to happen, his health didn’t allow him to do it very long. It was really sad that he got sick and was not able to travel anymore. Ernie died in September, 2007.

Ernie’s Bio in his own words:
“I was born in Louisiana, U.S.A. Raised in Evangeline Parish and East Texas. Late blooming baby boomer, nurtured by godfearing baptists and creole catholics and the powerful fun of the second line drum. I’m trying to serve the blackness well.”

Biography

Erskine Oglesby gained a strong reputation within his hometown St. Louis, Missouri Born in St. Louis in 1937, Erskine played with nearly everyone who had a name in his hometown He started out at the age of l4 on piano with no less a performer than Chuck Berry. Still the sax was and remained his choice instrument throughout.

When he finished his military service in the US Air Force in November 1957, Erskine got in touch with Billy Gayles’ band and started out as a professional musician. Over the years he played with the likes of Albert King, Ike & Tina Turner, Little Milton, Billy Gayles, Eugene Neal and Benny Sharp, as well as with local jazz acts. He just didn’t want to limit himself to blues (Because I enjoy it all!), he told the St. Louis Blues Society. In 90’s he also visited Europe as a member of the St. Louis Kings of Rhythm and on more than one occasion he played with other St. Louis acts at the renowned Bluesestafette in Utrecht

His taste for diversity also shows on his two records for Black & Tan Records. The music he picked ranges from straight jump blues to jazzy instrumentals.

Percy Strother - Home At Last
Percy Strother – Home At Last (1998)

Biography

For a sense of the blues at its most tangible, one needs to look no further than singer/guitarist Percy Strother, who triumphed over incredible tragedy to create music of genuine pain and sorrow. Born July 23, 1946 in Vicksburg, Mississippi, he was still a child when his father died violently; his mother passed away shortly afterward, and rather than submitting to life in an orphanage,

Strother simply took to the road. He drifted from job to job for a number of years, all the while fighting a battle with alcoholism; discovering the blues turned his life around, however, and after sobering up he began teaching himself guitar, honing his chops in virtual anonymity before recording his debut LP A Good Woman Is Hard to Find in 1992. The Highway Is My Home followed in 1995, and in 1997 Strother returned with It’s My Time. He toured Europe several times and recorded Home at Last there, which saw release in 2001. A legend in his adopted home of Minneapolis, Percy Strother was diagnosed with liver cancer and passed away May 29, 2005.
