Growing up on a ranch in central Arizona, there was a lot of country music on the radio. After quite a few years playing obscenely obscure underground rock ‘n roll, Topless “went country” around 1990. His solo albums “It’s So December” (2011) and “Big Black Heart” (2017) have received critical acclaim. Live album “Hank Me Crank Me I’m Dead” is slated for release in Spring 2019.
Episode 11 (March 2019) will continue in our mashup style- featuring the stylings of Phoenix rockabilly duo Jimmy Pines & Washboard Jere, and country singer Kaci Bays (Mickey Gilley Band). Hank Topless (band) closes out the night with a set of psycho / power country.
