Jay Gordon And The Penetrators

Aggressive Slide Guitar

Aggressive slide guitar - and then some! Really, it doesn't begin to describe what Jay Gordon brings to the blues party. For proof, check out the amazing slide guitar, vocals, and overall energy found on Gold Rings Silver Bullets, the latest from Jay Gordon And The Penetrators. Fans of Blues Bureau International's rockers-turned-bluesmen Pat Travers and Rick Derringer need to check out the axe work and intensity emanating from Gordon's six string - it hits you right in the gut like an Oscar De La Hoya body blow. Many find it hard to distinguish themselves when they play blues, but Gordon and his band immediately impress because they do have their unique presence that allows the listener to identify them after only listening to a couple of bars. Looking for passion, blood, guts and scraped knuckles from your blues? Check out the latest offering from Jay Gordon - Gold Rings Silver Bullets. Wow! Jay Gordon And The Penetrators were originally profiled in the June-July, 2007 edition of The Undiscovered.

alb Jay Gordon, renowned throughout both Europe and the U.S. for his over-the-top, sizzling live performances, recorded a series of albums for Blue Ace that have inspired comparisons to such legendary guitarists as Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Beginning with "Blues Infested" (1994), Gordon won much praise from the blues community. Each successive album became increasingly successful - "Broadcasting The Blues Live" (1996), "Electric Redemption" (1998), and so on - and the guitarist soon found himself being compared to some of the most legendary guitarists to ever play electric blues. Jay's song "Drippin' Blues" is featured on the current Electric Blues Radio Playlist. In 2000, Gordon collaborated with Phillip Walker on the "Jaywalkin" album for Blue Ace, yet another accomplishment for the celebrated guitarist.

Gordon will be featured on nationally syndicated radio program, Blues Deluxe, during the week of June 10-16. "Jay Gordon and the Penetrators are one of our favorite ways to rock the blues!" said Dave Johnson, host of Blues Deluxe - which is heard weekly on over 100 stations across the U.S. with a two million-plus listenership.

Arsen Shomakhov

Where Moscow Meets Texas Blues

The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming! Not only the title of the 1966 comedy featuring Jonathan Winters, Carl Reiner and Alan Arkin, it now stands for the country's latest export - the blues. One of the leading exponents of Russian blues is guitar player, singer and songwriter Arsen Shomakhov, who submitted a CD-R 'best of' with seven hot blues tracks, including his scorching instrumental "Dangerous". The tunes are pulled from his two CDs ("Troublemaker" and "Dangerous"), Shomakhov fronts the blues band Ragtime, who are one of the leading acts on the Russian blues scene. More instrumental tracks were included, such as "The Arsonist", a lyrical boogie perfect for a quick trip down the highway to the crossroads. Clearly if you are into blues, it would behoove you to hear what's currently coming out of Moscow - guys like Shomakhov are ready to impress. Arsen Shomakhov was originally profiled in the June-July, 2007 edition of The Undiscovered.

pic The blues band Ragtime (after the E.L. Doctorow novel) was formed in 1991, and the band first participated in the St Petersburg Neva Delta Blues Festival, which in 2001 led to a series of gigs at the best blues venues in Moscow. In April of 2002, the band released their debut album, "Heavy Steppin'", which led to gigs at venues such as the legendary B.B. King Club in Moscow. It received good press and has enjoyed international and national (Russian) airplay. In May of 2003 the band received an award at the All-Russia Spring 2003 Blues Festival in Moscow, and was invited to participate in early September 2003 in the first International Moscow Blues Festival. That same month they released their second album, "Troublemaker", which they presented at the renowned Forte blues club in Moscow on December 4, 2003. "Troublemaker" is now considered to be one of the best Russian blues records, and was included in the Top 25 albums of the Australian "Blues Beat" program in 2003 and 2004.

In February of 2005, the band traveled to Memphis to participate in the International Blues Challenge under the auspices of "blues.ru", the Russian blues community. Astounding listeners at the Blues City Cafe with their remarkable covers of "I Am Ready" and "Dirty Girl", they then proceeded to tear the place apart with originals such as "Don't Miss Your Train", "She's Dangerous", and some songs from their third CD, to be released later this year.
