THIS FORD'S GOT HORSEPOWER
1/19/18

Ford Madox Ford is (in addition to the name of a famed novelist) the moniker of the edgy new project by O.G. punk firebrands Chip and Tony Kinman. The brothers, best known as the tandem musical engine behind The Dils and cowpunk legends Rank & File, combine Velvets and Chicago blues influences on the new project; they'll drop debut full-length This American Blues digitally on 2/2 (with a blue vinyl edition out 2/16) via the wonderful label Porterhouse Records. Check out their topical track "Dark American Night" below; you'll find it and another new single, "Promised," here. Porterhouse, of course, has put out some delectable X and other classic punk vinyl, and label boss Steve Kravac is a pretty spiffy artist/producer in his own right. But more about that later.
