Wayne Hancock "Thunderstorms and Neon Signs"

Biography

Since his stunning debut, Thunderstorms and Neon Signs in 1995, Wayne “The Train” Hancock has been the undisputed king of Juke Joint Swing--that alchemist’s dream of honky-tonk, western swing, blues, Texas rockabilly and big band. Always an anomaly among his country music peers, Wayne’s uncompromising interpretation of the music he loves is in fact what defines him: ... Read more in Amazon's Wayne Hancock Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Wayne Hancock's piercing, nasal tenor reminds one immediately of Hank Williams Sr., but unlike a lot of neo-hillbillies, this young Texan resembles his hero without any trace of reverence or irony. On his second album, That's What Daddy Wants, Hancock cruises through a dozen originals and one remake ("Brand New Cadillac") with a naturalness that's disarming. As you listen to these songs about barrooms, bedrooms, and badlands, you find yourself thinking not about the history of the bygone honky-tonk and rockabilly styles that Hancock draws on but about "that gal with the blue dress on" and "a thousand miles of open desert road." As a songwriter, Hancock simply recycles the two-step rhythms, three-chord changes, 12-bar blues, four-lane highways, and two-women troubles of his favorite old records. He invests this ordinary material with exceptional life, however, thanks to the irresistible vitality of his vocals. Whenever he comes to a key word in a song, he stretches it out into an aching drawl before turning it into a low growl or a high yodel. Joe Ely's old pedal steel guitarist, Lloyd Maines, produced the album with admirable restraint, giving Hancock's voice lots of room but also egging it along with hints of Western swing and Dixieland. --Geoffrey Himes

5.0 out of 5 stars Like A RainStorm To Your Drought-full Ears October 27, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Wayne Hancock's voice and music hits you like the ringing of the ice cream truck from your second floor room down the street - immediately and wholly dominates your being. Whatever you're doing before that sudden unexpected sound is forgotten; whether you answer that call by running out the door scrambling for change along the way, or let it pass moving further away with every chime - your pulse has started to race and something wont let you sit still no more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great American Music! May 13, 2000
Format:Audio CD
"If misery was a crime then I'd always be serving time"...what a great lyric! Wayne is one of those artists that defy easy classification and that's what I like about him. I was blown away by this record when I first heard it. Passionate, visceral and original, Wayne knows how to make good ole American music with flair and style!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wayne the Train Hancock October 16, 1999
Format:Audio CD
If you can't go see Wayne live, buy this album. His music is reminiscent of Hank Williams Sr, but has its own ideas and twists. It has a hard edge to it, but it can be sentimental.
oh heck, just listen to the clips and buy it for yourself. it is good stuff.
