GUEST: Ham Bagby
RESTAURANT: Dimitri's BBQ, Homewood AL
Straight from the back porch, complete with birds, lawnmowers, and my nephew Milo here and there, it's the first of our Alabama Trilogy of episodes! Ham Bagby is a renowned guitarist and singer based out of Birmingham, known for his sly, funky licks and his funny lyrics. Ham Bagby and the Siege play songs like "Shit's Crucial" and "I'm a Dick When I Drink," leavening their silly nature with some shit-hot soloing and boozy southern rock riffage. Ham sat down and talked to us about the evolution of his sound, gig stories from hell, balancing art and life, and demolishing some good-ass barbecue and fried turnovers.
WORLD PREMIERE! Listen after our chat for live solo recordings of TWO brand new Ham Bagby tunes, "Oh Reba" and the surprisingly poignant "Old As F**k."
