HIGH SCHOOL ROACHES

If you’ve been cruising the internets today, you’ve probably seen a lot of talk about Mr. Oxford Mississippi – John Barrett. His latest 7″ single High School Roaches just came out on Baby Don’t Records [In case you’re unaware, that’s the same label that put out the Kintaro 7″ and is run by Cy Barkley of Cy Barkley and The Cyborgs — not their real band name] The single totally kills. It’s like a dreamboat mixture of punk-garage-southern tinged- rock rolling- john barretty- you know. John Barrett isn’t slated to come to Nashville anytime right now, but we’re working on getting him and crew to come up for a show. After seeing them at SXSW for the 5th time, we can absolutely vouch that this single is worth snagging, so pick it up! Plus he’s just the nicest dude.
