A return visit to Sheffield from our Austin based pals and all round wonderful individuals WILD BILL & THE LOST KNOBS!!!
Wild Bill and the Lost Knobs are a high-energy, roots-rock band from Austin, Texas. The international touring band is heavily influenced by music from Austin's trademark 70s era, the band combines blues and country with other progressive styles to satisfy the dancers, the rockers, the rollers, and anyone else who hears them play. They look and sound like they were sent straight out of a time machine from the Armadillo World Headquarters in 1978, and quite possibly smell like it too. The band formed in a slow cooker starting with a singer songwriter show in a coffee shop. That eventually resulted in the band playing their own "Highbilly Happy Hour" residency at the world famous Antone's.
They released their debut album, The Show, in 2014, and produced three videos to promote it. The video for "The Show" swept top honors over some of Austin's biggest names at the Austin Music Video Race winning for best art direction, best concept, best use of song, and best music video. They were invited to England in 2015 to play the Eroica Brittania Festival.
In 2012, Wild Bill wrote and produced his own original Christmas musical, Honky Tonk Holidaze, which is performed with the band and several other Austin musicians. The annual event benefits local charities including Austin Pets Alive, Mobile Loaves and Fishes, and Front Steps.
Everybody in this town's a songwriter: your bartender, your boyfriend, your banker. Ogden is, too, but in the context of Wild Bill, everybody else sounds the same.
- Chase Hoffberger, Austin Chronicle
Sitting down with Wild Bill is kind of like meeting a virile cross between Jackie Gleason and a surly, pre-Scientology Beck for coffee and realizing you might have been better off with a beer or two instead.
- Ed Kiaune, Austin City Sphere
M.I.A. has sampled Bill. What did Bill do? He sampled her right back. He may look hillbilly, but he ain't. Strap yourself into your seat when you come. Read the shirts and hear the words. T-Shirt ain't supplied, but the wit is free. When Bill dances, we dances.
At a Wild Bill show, you, as the audience, experience an all-out blast of demented good times, sordid tales with intriguing finales, extra flourishes and personal touches that only a tripped-out troubadour like Wild Bill can conjure. All that, and deviled eggs.You have to see it to believe it.
- Laurie Gallardo, KUT radio
Support from everyone's favourite cosmic country blues trio THE GOAT ROPER RODEO BAND!!!
