Blood On The Saddle – Fresh Blood – Cassette

Fresh Blood is an album by the American cowpunk band Blood on the Saddle. Released in 1986, it is the band’s debut album and is considered a classic in the cowpunk genre.

One of Los Angeles’ more notable band of hillbilly thrashers, Blood on the Saddle was originally formed by vocalist and guitarist Greg Davis with bassist Ron Botelho and Hermann Senac, who alternated work on drums and vocals.

Months after they began playing shows, Blood on the Saddle was augmented with yet another vocalist, Annette Zilinskas, formerly of the Bangles. She had left the band just before the release of their first LP in 1984.

The group debuted with a respected self-titled album on New Alliance in 1984, but moved to Chameleon in 1986 for Poison Love, an album just a bit more mature than the country chaos of their first. Third album Fresh Blood, though released by SST Records, was their last.

Blood on the Saddle, hailing from Los Angeles, combined elements of punk rock, country, and rockabilly to create their unique sound. “Fresh Blood” showcases their energetic and raucous approach to music, blending catchy melodies, twangy guitar riffs, and driving rhythms.

The album features a mix of original songs and covers, with tracks that often touch upon themes of love, heartbreak, and the darker side of life. The lyrics are often accompanied by a sense of humor and a rebellious attitude, characteristic of the cowpunk movement.

Standout tracks from Fresh Blood include the infectious “(I’m) In Love With Your Girlfriend,” the rollicking “Ain’t You Gonna Cry,” and the title track “Fresh Blood,” which exemplifies the band’s fusion of punk and country influences.

Fresh Blood received critical acclaim upon its release and helped establish Blood on the Saddle as a prominent act in the cowpunk scene. The album’s raw energy and distinctive blend of genres contributed to its enduring appeal.

For fans of cowpunk, punk rock, or those interested in exploring the crossover between country and punk music, “Fresh Blood” is a recommended listen. It captures the spirit and sound of Blood on the Saddle, showcasing their contribution to the cowpunk movement of the 1980s.
