Biography

The eight sides documented from the Birmingham Jug Music group in Dec of 1930 symbolize the entire documented output by among the era’s earthiest, most raucous — & most obscure — jug bands. The regular membership of the group hasn’t been confirmed, though many blues scholars place the semi-legendary harmonica participant Jaybird Coleman in the helm alongside Ben Curry, a medicine-show entertainer also called “Bogus Blind” Ben Covington (“bogus” because he wasn’t actually blind). Big Joe Williams stated to have used the group and recognized the next lineup: Coleman, Covington, “One-Armed Dave” (Dave Kilometers), “Dr. Scott,” a jug blower called “Honeycup,” along with a washboard participant known as “New Orleans Slide.” The group most likely performed in medication shows over the Deep South, and their documented repertoire provides some understanding in to the musical designs presented in such displays. Of all jug bands from the ’20s and ’30s, the Birmingham music group had probably one of the most unique noises on record, though their repertoire was considerably less varied than that of organizations just like the Memphis Jug Music group or Cannon’s Jug Stompers. Most likely the just full jug music group from south of Memphis to record, the group experienced a far more rural audio than its contemporaries, reflecting the appearance of the united states string music group as much because the well-known jug music group. The group’s eight recordings are seen as a a prominent lead mandolin and similarly prominent harmonica; gruff, large vocals; along with a throbbing tempo enforced largely with the insistently pounding jug. Also documenting within the same Atlanta studio room that time was Ruler David’s Jug Music group, another little-documented group; jointly, these two clothes produced a number of the liveliest & most interesting records in the height from the jug music group era.
