It must have seemed like a big iron world to the members of the Old Crow Medicine Show when they spent the first months of their existence in a cramped van, honing their skills on the street corners and alleys of what must have seemed like every town in Canada all those year ago.
The work paid dividends though, and now, with two records out on Nettwerk Record and infinite critical acclaim, the world is simply theirs for the taking – and they show no signs of letting up. Their latest, Big Iron World, is another in what hopefully is a long line of great neo-old-time/stringband/folk/bluegrass records.
Once again featuring a handful of well-penned originals along with some dusty old tunes they’ve spit-shined to a high gloss sheen, Big Iron World is O.C.M.S. at their infectious best singing good time songs of wine, women, and well, cocaine….again.
