The Low Counts...Blue Collar Rock-n-Roll Duo

"...sounds like Black Sabbath meets T-Model Ford" - The Low Counts are a Rock-n-Roll  guitar-drum duo. The Low Counts' original music is a hodge podge of the all of the music that influences Matt Walsh and Austin Hicks the most, finding them, effortlessly combining early 40's and 50's Mississippi/Urban/Piedmont Blues, 50's Sun Records styled Rock/Rockabilly, 60's Garage Rock, 70's Stoner Rock, Psychedelia, old Country, Stax Soul, Hip-Hop or whatever else they can find to throw in the pot. As long as it comes out of the mash-up sounding original, real, fresh and if it rocks, it gets the stamp of approval. This duo isn't easy to categorize, but one thing anyone could agree on is that whatever comes out of it, it's always no-nonsense, raw, energetic, primal and coming from many music avenues at once, weaving them into one unique sound.

    Black Sabbath meets Model-T Ford? Sounds like a dischordant train wreck waiting to happen. Luckily, the Low Counts music is anything but that. Sporting more than a few stylistic influences, there is no question their music is firmly rooted in blues on electricity--power blues. The sound isn't primal. It's honest. When listening, I can't help but play my air-bass guitar though it's easy to see why the dynamic duo doesn't need a bassist, Matt Walsh can unload a lot sound out of a small package. I look forward to hearing them again, especially when they come back this way to play at Chapel Hill/Carrboro's, The Cave. If you like blues that has influences that make you want to move your feet, swing your butt, or maybe play air guitar, then you owe it to yourself to have a good time and check them out.

    The wife and I went to Goodtimes BBQ last night for dinner and I was blown away. I thought for a minute that we had stepped into mississippi juke joint.. I have never heard of these guys before but they killed it. Wow! Do you guys have a CD? This is how the blues should be played! Lowdown and dirty with an ass shaking backbeat. I wanted them to play all night long. I can't wait to see them again.

    Just caught your incredible sound at the Lexington BBQ Festival, 10-27. You guys Rock!! as if you haven't heard that a million times. I was trying to discern what instruments you were playing. That axe has your own spot-on sound and the drum kit kicks ass. Hope to see you again soon.
