Payin' Dues: James Leg
Fantastically hellish punk blues from the Texan son of a preacher man
The son of a Texas preacher, singer and keyboardist John Wesley Myers, aka James Leg, cut his teeth in the Black Diamond Heavies, Cut In The Hill Gang and The Immortal Lee County Killers before launching a solo career with 2011’s Solitary Pleasure. The following year saw him team with Left Lane Cruiser on the album Painkillers, while this month fanfares the arrival of his second solo record. Below The Belt, recorded over six weeks, is his most explosive work to date. “I’m always going for in-the-red, honest and loud,” he says.
