Welcome back Bull City!!!
Durham, NC rock and roll band Bull City melds the twin universes of heady, precise indie rock and Southern-fried classic rock. Hometown heroes who have honed their chops in many other bands in the Chapel Hill/Raleigh/Durham ‘Triangle’ music scene, the four members of Bull City bring equal amounts of inspired songcraft, sonic invention and to put it quite simply, “the rock.”
Jim Brantley recorded and toured with THE ASHLEY STOVE (Merge Records) and has developed a cult following for THE BRANTLEY FAMILY BAND. (the 2010 Christmas Album is here for the download (thebrantleyfamilyband.com).
John Kurtz recorded and played with FISHING FOR YOUR GIRLFRIEND.
Lance Westerlund has recently been heard with MY DEAR ELLA.
Scott Carle was recently a member of MARAT (Morisen Records), and played for many years in DILLON FENCE (Mammoth/Atlantic) and later with COLLAPSIS (Cherry/ Universal) – all groups that toured constantly and enjoyed worldwide exposure and recognition.
“… Like Cracker sharpening Countrysides to a not-ironic gleam or—better yet—an album-rock suckler whose sense of song and like of jangle survived a career as an indie rockist, Bull City gets smart, efficient pop about right. It’s not hard to conceptualize Bull City as the Connells or Roman Candle of, yeah, the Bull City.”
