So, "what's been goin' on in the last little while?" you say, huh? Well, been keepin' mucho busy, that's what!  Did another tour down south to Florida and Georgia...  Played in a real beaut of a theatre with the great RONNIE SPECTOR (!)...  Spent the weekend to the NEW ENGLAND SHAKE-UP as a Hick-Up, a one-man band and as a DJ,  Played on the beach in NJ for the RACE OF GENTLEMAN (actually, only played 2 songs til the generator blew out!)...  Did a 2 week tour as upright bassist (!) for HEAVY TRASH, also did the opening slot as solo act, we hit all over NY, QC, ME, VT, ON, played in a barn, etc - it was definetly something new for me (the bass part,not the barn) and I had a great time...  Played a show in a bowling alley on Halloween with my band The HICK-UPS...

Just back from a mini-tour around France, and looking forward to the launches of my new album SHOOK SHAKE (16 big tracks!) and new X-mas 45 (2 BB-penned yuletide originals!), both coming out on NORTON RECORDS next month.  Loads more releases planned for 2015 too.  Until then, check my FB page and IG for all the latest & up-to-date greatest of what's up in BB-land...and spy the GIGS page - who knows, maybe I'll be in your town next?

BLOODSHOT BILL "Thunder & Lightning" LP - on Norton records!!  
 
Here's the word from Nortonville:
"He’s made scads of solid senders all over the globe, but here’s the one man racket squad’s first full length Norton platter and we think it’s his best offering to date! THUNDER AND LIGHTNING features brand new Bloodshot Bill-penned rockers like Crazy ‘Bout The Girl and The Hunt plus killer remakes of Tooter Boatman’s title thumper and Eddie Cochran’s brooding Dark Lonely Street – GET THIS ALBUM!"
Available at Norton Records, cool record shops and at shows!
