MP3 Hosty Duo - The Golden Country Hits

Oklahoma Red Dirt Americana featuring the greatest epic song ever about fishing, "The General Part I and II".

14 MP3 Songs
COUNTRY: Western, COUNTRY: Country Blues

Out of Norman, Oklahoma, witty guitar guru Hosty and his side kick, two piece drummer, Michael "Tic Tac" Byars, entertain as the Hosty Duo with a tour schedule of 250 shows a year. Hosty simultaneously tears through gritty slide leads, blows harmonica and or Kazoo and uses foot pedals to stomp bass lines. His guitar collection includes an 8 string instrument that allows him to thump three bass strings with his thumb while he fingerpicks guitar. The Hosty Duo has developed a huge underground following of bikers, sorority gals, hippies and truckers."

Hosty Duo:
Golden Country Hits............Loud Magazine

Despite the title, which seems ripped from Ween''s "12 Golden Country Greats," there is little else to this release that is unoriginal.
After purging himself with the sprawling " Un Hombre Malo," (a career best) and "live in Denver," an album that shows what Hosty can do as a One man Band when left to his own creativity, mike Hosty and trusty companion Mike Byars (aka Tic Tac) are back on this release, their most adventurous yet.
"Golden county Hits" eschews the regular blues that Hosty usually favors for a pan-American overview that is similar to Ry Cooder''s "paradise and Lunch" and "chicken Skin Music."
Hosty skillfully hits spaghetti western theme music, hillbilly rock, country rock, acoustic blues, spoken word folk, Tex Mex, Hawaiian and traditional blues. In all of these songs, Hosty proves why he is not only of OKC''s finest musicians, but songwriters, too. The Hosty Duo is one of those outfits that need to be supported at every turn. Here is a good place to start.
