Nine Pound Hammer

NINE POUND HAMMER, founded by Blaine Cartwright (guitar, also in Nashville Pussy) and Scott Luallen (vocals), rose from the flatlands of Owensboro, Kentucky in 1985,  fully possessed in spirit of their heroes the Ramones, Cash,
Bruce, and tons of BBQ.

The first LP, " The Mud, the Blood, and the Beers"  caught the ear of
the BBC's John Peel, and roped in many critical raves ("the Ramones in
a pickup"  Billboard).

 That launched a ten-year ride that landed them on the legendary Crypt
Records, to record " Smokin Taters"  (1992)  and "Hayseed Timebomb"
(1994).

Intense roadwork made them family to thousands of fans in the states
and Europe, even Japan got a taste in 96. Skateboard legend Tony Hawk
also snatched up the smash "Run Fatboy Run"  for his video game.

A burnout break saw Blaine form the notorious NASHVILLE PUSSY, and
finally in 2003 they reunited for the triumphant "Kentucky Breakdown"
on Acetate Records.

"Sex ,Drugs, and Bill Monroe" 2005 followed, and the band penned
"Carl's Theme" for the AQUA TEEN HUNGER FORCE movie soundtrack, along
with the intro song to the cult classic "12 OUNCE MOUSE" on Adult
Swim. Scott even wrangled a role on the show as corndog farmer
"Roostre."

The release "Country Classics"  in 2010  rounded out the gloriously
erratic decade, punctuated by more self-imposed crises and exiles.

Rising again out of the topsoil, the latest "BLUEGRASS CONSPIRACY,"
produced by Brian Pulito on Nitrosonic Records, brought original
drummer Rob Hulsman, bassist Mark Hendricks, and guitarist Earl Crim
back to the fold.

Following a successful and widely supported PledgeMusic campaign and record release, the band is focused on 2016 and beyond to
awaken the masses to the BLUEGRASS CONSPIRACY!!
