The one and only definition of Bone Music

Welcome to the world of Hoodoohat and Bone Music. Just to make sure we're all on the same page, Bone Music is not blues. It's not rockabilly, although sometimes it's a bit of Bonabilly, or a bit of Billybone, but not so much billy that the bone becomes predictable. But since Bone Music cannot be defined by what it isn't, let us tell you what it is, this being, simply put, guitar driven music that makes more than just the average bonehead want to dance.

1. Rock This Town.mp3. Here's a live sample of Hoodoohat covering the Stray Cats'/Brian Setzer's Rock This Town. It's not quite what we're doing these days, but it is a helluva fun song to play. A lot of our stuff is a bit harder-edged, but again, Setzer is king, and the party crowd loves it.

2. My Own Kind.mp3 (Copyright 2006/Preston Smith). Bizarre jumpy Bone Music for bizarre jumpy people. Also a lot of fun to play.

3. Don't Worry Baby.mp3. Here's another live cut (a little rough recording-wise, I admit), this time of Hoodoohat covering Los Lobos (one of the greatest bands in the world), and dang, talk about a great song to play live.

Plenty more is coming soon from Hoodoohat, but we're in discussions with someone in the biz, so we have to see how it works out before we post our favorite originals. With regard to the first CD, cross your fingers, send us your mojo, give us your karma, etc. ­ or just come out to see us play.

In the meantime, it's also worth checking out a couple of tracks by Marek "the Unknown Giant" Tymkoff. These songs are in Polish, but dang can this cat play.
