The Great Book of John is led by Taylor Shaw of Birmingham Alabama band, Wild Sweet Orange. Their latest album is a self titled one, and My Old Kentucky Blog just premiered a fantastic track from the record called “Robin Hood”. It’s a big deal to say that this song reminds me of 90′s Radiohead, but it does.
Taylor wants the build down all those bastards that steal from the poor. How can you not like him?

Hi. Welcome to our new site. Keep coming back for more news and other goodness.

FYI: The Great Book of John’s new album drops on 8/16 from Communicating Vessels. To say we’re very excited would be an understatement. It will be available as a CD, a digital download, and as a limited edition LP (on clear vinyl; comes with a high-quality download of the album).

If you want some new music now the you can download our cover of INXS’ “Never Tear Us Apart” and the “Let Me Slide” / “On and On” single from iTunes and other purveyors of digital music. “Let Me Slide” is also still available as a limited edition 7″ single (that comes with an instant, high quality download) from Communicating Vessels.
