JAMES LEG GETS IN STEP!
JAMES LEG, alias John Wesley Myers of the IMMORTAL LEE COUNTY KILLERS and BLACK DIAMOND HEAVIES, is set to release his second solo album next month through Alive Naturalsound Records.
Following on from his acclaimed 2011 solo debut, Solitary Pleasure, and his 2012 joint venture with LEFT LANE CRUISER, Painkillers, Leg recorded the tracks for Below The Belt earlier this year in the dead of winter with several guest musicians at Johnny Walker’s (SOLEDAD BROTHERS, CUT IN THE HILL GANG) studio, Masonic Sounds in Dayton, Kentucky. The album was mixed by renowned producer/engineer Jim Diamond at Ghetto Recorders in Detroit.
Standout cuts among a clutch of Leg originals include covers of THE DIRTBOMBS’ ‘Can’t Stop Thinking About It’, SISTER ROSETTA THARPE’s ‘Up Above My Head’ and, most alarming of all, THE CURE’s ‘A Forest’.
Below The Belt is set for release on 11 September on CD, download and clear vinyl, with UK dates planned for November. You can pre-order the album here.
