Clap Your Hands

Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band is a 3-piece country blues band from Brown County, Indiana. They share some metafilter politics, but sing about a few more unique experiences, too. Ben plays drums, Breezy plays washboard, and the Reverend himself plays guitar and the bass line (at the same time), sometimes on a cigar box guitar. If you like what you've heard: hop a train or an old pickup, scream at the night, share some pot roast and kisses, watch out for the devils who look like angels, and don't forget to clap your hands.

I saw 'em live here in London a year or so ago & they were great. Mrs Peyton (as I take her to be) staged a Hendrix stunt with her washboard, a can of lighter fluid, a naked flame, and all the appropriate gestures. Now that's rock 'n' roll!

Some say that Bloomington is where Indiana gets its freak on, and that is a reasonable position to take, but this Hoosier can tell you that Brown County is where the freaking gets truly freaked in Indiana. Thanks for this post.
