The Black Knots-Hellbent to Kick It out (Oil River Records 2007)



BLACK KNOTS Along the Ohio River in the heart of Appalachia lye’s a band that on one hand separates themselves entirely from their region and on the other represents everything that demands respect in small town America. In a time where rock is looked at as a commodity rather than an attitude based driving force, our music community has been left cheated. When people speak of the music that summarizes the reason they fell in love with rock, often their conversations are based on memory and nostalgia. Once upon a time rock meant big, it meant caring for things you weren’t supposed to and apathy for what you should. It meant girls, drugs, late nights and fights. It meant tomorrow you might not wake up… “But that was a justifiable risk to follow the party!” In Huntington West Virginia, a small town on the border of three states a band had done something where so many others have tried and fallen short. Remind us why we loved rock again. The Black Knots are a band built on few but valued principles. The ridiculous and over the top for other bands is only the “setting of the bar” for the Black Knots. Rock should be attitude, it should be bigger than life and over the top because that is the ideals that it was built on and ideals perpetuated since its inception.
