First Appeared at The Music Box, February 2003, Volume 10, #2
Written by T.J. Simon
Just about the only time you’ll hear the words San Diego and honky tonk in the same sentence is when someone tells you about this great country band known as Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash. Sporting more of a spiritual lineage to the Man in Black than an actual one, the Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash has released Distance Between, the group's second damn fine album of new traditionalist country songs about cars (1970 Monte Carlo), love (Last Goodbye), and mysterious atmospheric conditions (Marfa Lights). Singer/songwriter Mark Stuart is in boomingly good voice throughout this entire likable release. ˝
