THE TIM VERSION – Decline of the Southern Gentleman
THE TIM VERSION
DECLINE OF THE SOUTHERN GENTLEMAN
Tampa anthemic punks with whiskey fuelled, gruff third studio album.
The Tim Version have been tearing out awesome punk songs for years. With driving songs such as the belting opener ‘Shin Splints’ (complete with guitar solo!), the bouncing confessional of ‘Murder’ and the sing along of ‘W.H.A.’, as well as the dirty country punk of ‘Where the Wildmen Are’ and ‘Bitter Greens’, this album bursts with energy and tension. This is accentuated by Russ VanCleave’s incredibly raw vocals and honest lyrics about scrapes with the law and drinking. It’s nothing new but The Tim Version do this sound better than most. The Tim Version are raising the bar (or should that be drinking it dry?) for gruff punk.
