Lute FP God damn, this is good. Heavy folk-punk- Tennessee's answer to Ukraine's Gogol Bordello, or Santa Cruz's Devil Makes Three. Classic storytelling in the vein of Streets of Laredo, excellent lyrics and sonically captivating

Matthais Punk-folk in the tradition of the violent femmes. Boy, Gordon Gano created some great songs, but these guys hit the point, too! Favorite track: Whiskey and a Guitar.

Nathaniel Pryor Saw them in person and own the CD and both will blow you out of this world! Favorite track: Ten Paces at Wolfman Gorge.

Bucky Take the classic punk rock sound of early AFI or Guttermouth and bury it in smoke, drown it with whiskey and trample it with wild stallions running across a southwestern desert plateau, and you get Cactus Black. Favorite track: When the Devil Knocks.

Joe Nobles I found out about Cactus Black the first time I walked into a local record store as they were playing in the background. I got the privilege to see them play live and get that record signed, which now hangs on my wall in my room, and all of the guys are great. It's such a unique and original sound, I hope they go far with their music. Favorite track: Hanging Up My Guns/A Prayer at Dusk.

Marq Qwark I just love the storytelling style!
For a short moment i thought it's Joanna Newsom for men ;D Sometimes i am obscurely reminded of Refused and Gogol Bordello. All mixed up in an amazing cowboy-cool setup. Instant Buy! Favorite track: The Day the Rio Grande Ran Red.

about

Las Cruces is an attempt to chronicle the journey of a fugitive named Clay Blackwell (Cactus Black) through loss and isolation. After a grave altercation left blood on Cactus' hands, he was forced to take to the road for preservation of his own life. So it goes. Las Cruces is filled with the imagery of deserts, vultures, rattlers, god, the devil, whiskey, and the road. Some storyellin, some revenge, some redemption, and keepin ahead of the Sheriff's guns.
