McGonigel's Mucky Duck presents Ray Wylie Hubbard. TWO SHOWS!
“ Ray Wylie Hubbard wrote Up Against the Wall Redneck Mother, which became the anthem of outlaw country. Hubbard did what rebellious young rednecks do to render themselves legendary, and then he sobered up, grew spiritual and learned to control his craft. But Hubbard also did the unexpected: He became a powerful artist…” – Dave Marsh PLAYBOY
“Think of it as mystical biker country. There’s a definite cosmic thrust to the plunked tin guitar notes, the jingle-jangle tambourine, tattooed rhythms and a red-dust harmonica wheezing a spectral recap of the mostly blues, kinda country melodies.” – – American Songwriter
“Ray Wylie Hubbard was an outlaw before the term was coined and he continues to go is own solitary way on A. Enlightenment B. Endarkenment (Hint: There is no C).” – – Crawdaddy
“On first listen, his first new album in four years may not sound like a radical departure from his previous four records, but A. Enlightenment, B. Endarkenment (Hint: There Is No C) is anything but business as usual.” – Lone Star Music
“Enlightenment is an entire back-to-basics movement rolled into 12 tracks that uncoil like a rattlesnake disturbed in its sleep.” – Houston Press
“He's got a deep, gravelly voice that certainly wouldn't be suited to much material. But it's perfect for his dark tales and invocations of, for example, a "Drunken Poet's Dream," which is filled with alcohol and alluring women and a battle with wasps and their hellfire stings.” – Journal Star.
