From Belgium with love …

“The name Big John Bates might evoke visions of tough cowboys, hot deserts, banjos and country, but that is only part of the truth. His Americana sound does contain some country, but it functions as the skeleton to which creepy southern gothic, indie and dark blues put their flesh on. Coated with a layer of rustic, dark southern elements, this music will find fans among those who like 16 Horsepower, Murder By Death and Jack White” – makes us sound appetizing don’t it?
