Editors’ Notes

Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires aren't your daddy’s Southern rock band. True, this Alabama quartet proclaim their rebel pride and fighting spirit with hellacious conviction, time and again. But as their sophomore album, Deconstructed, makes clear, they do it with a deep knowledge of Southern history informed by 21st-century experience, making their music more than a rehash of what Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers achieved 40 years ago. Frontman Bains brings a punk rocker’s ferocity to downhome anthems like “Flags!” (a blazing salute to his native region). Slower tracks like “Mississippi Bottomland” and “The Weeds Downtown” apply this same raucous passion to grooves as steamy as Tuscaloosa on an August afternoon. The twin-guitar attack of Bains and Eric Wallace slashes at the melodies with brutal finesse, filling “Dirt Track,” “We Dare Defend Our Rights,” and similar tunes with bursts of sublime fretboard violence. From the bluesy chest-thumping of “Company Man” to the relentless Bo Diddley–esque rhythms of “Burnpiles Swimming Holes” and the menacing hard twang of “What’s Good and Gone,” Bains and company do their Dixie roots proud on Deconstructed.

I've been messing with my equalizer trying to find a satisfactory mix to no avail. Some albums can withstand poor production. This isn't one of them. It makes the first Bad Brains release sound like ELO in comparison. Hopefully people will hear the songs through the mess and want to see this band live. Tons of potential, but I can't imagine anyone actually giving this recording repeated listenings.


Such a great album! Great potential, hope they make it big!
