Random News: Last Rites sees release, Scott Miller gear stolen, Fox Hunt lineup changes

Just some quick news here:

  • Last Rites of Ransom Pride, the western starring Kris Kristofferson, Dwight Yoakam, and written by Ray Wylie Hubbard is finally being released…..straight to DVD. I noticed this at the Red Box yesterday as it was shown as an upcoming release. Very excited about this. Look for it next week at Red Boxes nationwide.
  • Scott Miller had a good portion of his gear stolen in Buffalo, NY earlier this week. Here is a blurb from Scott: Thanks for all the support folks, the good news – they didn’t get the guitars, the bad news they got my amp and assorted stomp boxes, cables etc. also got my back pack with all the song notes from this summer of writing for the next record. Check the notes for amp info if you are poking around ebay or Craig’s list. The best news, I’m still touring and the shows have been great. (The amp in question is a Roland AC 90A, serial no. ZW50442)
  • The Fox Hunt announced yesterday that Matt Kline will be leaving the band and Darrin Hacquard and Paul Young will be joining. Tonight’s show in Frostburg, MD is actually Matt’s last show with the band. He will be missed as his songs dominate almost half of the excellent Long Way To Go (Troublemakin’ Woman, Sinner’s Like Me, Get Back Home, Lower Than I Should Be, When The Roll’s Called). I look forward to hearing the new Fox Hunt and whatever Matt decides to do.

    Speaking of RWH, did you see that amazing boot on DIME from June 26th. It was posted about a week ago. You hear RWH talk about how Last Rites was a great movie until the Hollywood guys fucked it up. He also talks about Jimmy Fallon and the weird dancing and stomping. Lucas’ licks are way better! Also, about 4 new songs are performed.

    As for the sound: absolutely amazing, it beats the freakin’ hell out of that 2000 live album. Here is the link (you’d be crazy not to post an MP3 version here at ATS):

    Disc 4
    The Outpost 1972 Live

    Hi Matt-
    Steve Howard was the 3rd cog in the Three Faces wheel after Ray left and is heard on the this album. He is sings lead, harmony and plays acoustic and electric slide. THANKS FOR UPLOADING THIS GREAT CD! Steve is my uncle and I spent the better part of my childhood wearing the grooves off this vinyl and did not have it in digital format until I found this. Went to RR several times as a youth and young adult and was honored to hang out with Rick and Wayne. Both still live in Red River (I think) and doing well. Rick has an album he recorded a few years ago on CDBaby – still a great picker, singer, songwriter. Steve is living in Kansas still playing and painting and Wayne is a preacher with a church in the area. He was featured on a video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gw6taBMfNn4. Thanks for the info and most importantly, the music. I love hearing this guys and they still hold up after all these years.

    Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog site in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, awesome blog!
