Editors’ Notes

It’s unusual for a magnetic live performer to translate that energy and enthusiasm to the recorded medium without losing an essential element. Yet that’s just what outlaw blues/country/folk troubadour Scott H. Biram achieves with the stellar Bad Ingredients. A rave-up like “Dontcha Lie to Me Baby” shakes with a shattering power far beyond a one-man band. The recordings are often deliberately lo-fi, but with a stunning clarity for guitars that gives everything a desperate power. “Victory Song” rips through the juke joint with high-level velocity. “I Want My Mojo Back,” recorded with saxophonist Walter Daniels, is primal blues. The lost and wandering spirits of “Just Another River,” “Open Road,” and “Born in Jail” crack a forlorn sky. “Broke Ass” is the kind of tortured love song one expects from a man who proudly lives his life at society’s margins. Biram is a brilliant performer; everything he touches shreds in his hands. Surely Tom Waits fans would understand.

Scott H. Biram offers up a unique blend of "real" country, old-school acoustic blues, and punk, with influences ranging from Minor Threat and Slayer to Bill Monroe and Mississippi Fred McDowell. Biram is a one-man band, playing all his songs on a 1959 Gibson hollow body guitar and an amplified "stomp board," yet each song is unique, and Biram dishes out a rare sense of self-confidence and independence rivaled by the originators of outlaw country music themselves. Describing his music as "the bastard...
