The Hackens Boys

Album Artwork

(hackensboys.com)

The debut from The Hackens Boys is filled to the rim with good ol’ fashioned Southern rock and country sounds.

The Virginia quartet comes out kicking with “Movin On,” a rockin’ tune that kind of caught me off guard. The bending chords in “Moving On” actually remind me of Ace Frehley - yes, the guy from KISS. Of course, that isn’t a bad thing. No not at all.

I really love “Back Home,” with it’s down home lyric, and “Strong Enough to Last” is pretty infectious as well. I gotta say, the drums and bass on these tracks are excellent and solid and mixed just right. The producers did a really nice job.

”Nature’s Son” may be my favorite song on the album, and of course, “Southern Rock Can’t Die” is another favorite, for obvious reasons. THis is the song the band says explains why they do what they do. I can dig it. Just listen as the boys pay tribute to all of our favorite bands of yesteryear. (And check out the GRITZ Compilation Vol. V for a free sample!) Good stuff.

"That is terrible disease for a Snow Man," said the yard-dog; "IUgg boots clearance have suffered from it myself, but I got over it. Away, away," he barked and then he added, "the weather is going to change." And the weather did change; it began to thaw. As the warmth increased, theuggs clearance Snow Man decreased. He said nothing and made no complaint, which is a sure sign. One morning he broke, and sunk down altogether; and, behold, where he had stood, something like a broomstick remained ugg boots outlet sticking up in the ground. It was the pole round which the boys had built him up. "Ah, now I understand why he had such a great longing UGG Boots Clearance for the stove," said the yard-dog. "Why, there's the shovel that is used for cleaning out the stove, fastened to the pole." The Snow ManUgg boots clearance had a stove scraper in his body; that was what moved him so. "But it's all over now. Away, away." And soon the winter passed. "Away, away," barked the hoarse yard-dog. But the girls in the house sang, "Come from your fragrant home, green thyme; Stretch your soft branches, willow-tree; Ugg boots clearance The months are bringing the sweet spring-time, When the lark in the sky sings joyfully. Come gentle sun, while the cuckoo sings,Ugg boots clearance And I'll mock his note in my wanderings." And nobody thought any more of the Snow Man.Ugg boots clearance

I hung about, watching the horses being unharnessed and turned out. Presently the bell on the gable-end UGG Boots Clearancetolled a couple of times. Doors opened, and people came into the yard, making for the kitchen. I went along with them. The warning: WATCH THOU FOR THE MUTANT! faced me as I went in, but it was much too familiar to stir a thought. What interested me ex?clusively at the moment was the smell of food.UGG Boots Clearance 3 I usually went over to see Sophie once or twice a week after that. What schooling we had — which was a matter of half a dozen children being taught to read and write and do some sums by one or another of several old women — took place in the mornings. It was not difficult at the midday meal to slip away from the table early and disappear until everyone would think someone else had found a job for me.UGG Boots Clearance When her ankle was quite recovered she was able to show me the favourite corners of her territory. One day I took her over our side of the big bank to see the steam-engine. There wasn't another steam-engine within a hundred miles, and we were very proud of it. Corky, who looked after it, was not about, but the doors at the end of its shed were open, letting out the sound of a rhythmic groaning, creaking, and puffing. We ventured on to the threshold and peered into the gloom inside. It was fascinating to watch the big timbers moving up and down with wheezing noises while up in the shadows of the roof a huge cross-beam rocked slowly backwards and forwards, with a pause at the end of each tilt as though it were summoning up energy for the next effort. Fascinating — but, after a time, monotonous.Clearance UGGS Ten minutes of it were enough, and we withdrew to climb to the top of the wood-pile beside the shed. We sat there with the whole heap quivering beneath us as the engine chugged ponderously on. 'My Uncle Axel says the Old People must have had much better engines than this,' I told her. 'My father says that if one-quarter of the things they say about the Old People are true, they must have been magicians: not real people, at all,' Sophie countered. ' But they were wonderful,' I insisted.Ugg boots clearance ' Too wonderful to be true, he says,' she told me. ' Doesn't he think they were able to fly, like people say?' I asked. ' No. That's silly. If they could've, we'd be able to.'Ugg boots clearance ' But there are lots of things they could do that we are learn?ing to do again,' I protested. ' Not flying.' She shook her head. ' Things can either fly, or they can't, and we can't,' she said. I thought of telling her about my dream of the city and the things flying over it, but after all, a dream isn't much evidence of anything, so I let it pass. Presently we climbed down, leaving the engine to its panting and creaking, and made our way over to her home.Ugg boots clearance John Wender, her father, was back from one of his trips. A sound of hammering came from the outside shed where he was stretching skins on frames, and the whole place smelt of his operations. Sophie rushed to him and flung her arms round his neck. He straightened up, holding her against him with one arm. 'Hullo, Chicky,' he said. He greeted me more gravely. We had an unspoken under?standing that we were on a man to man basis. It had always been like that. When he first saw me he had looked at me in a way that had scared me and made me afraid to speak in his presence. Gradually, however, that had changed. We became friends. He showed me and told me a lot of interesting things — all the same I would look up sometimes to find him watching me uneasily. And no wonder. Only some years later could I appreciate how badly troubled he must have been when he came home to find Sophie had sprained her ankle, and that it had been David Strorm, the son of Joseph Strorm, of all people, who had seen her foot. He must, I think, have been greatly tempted by the thought that a dead boy could break no promise. . . . Perhaps Mrs Wender saved me. . . .

"The Norm is the Image of God".'UGG Boots Clearance 'You do know — and yet, knowing this, you deliberately wished yourself a Mutant. That is a terrible thing, an out? rageous thing. You, my son, committing blasphemy, and before his parents!' In his sternest pulpit voice, he added: 'What is a Mutant?' '"A thing accursed in the sight of God and man",' I mumbled. 'And that is what you wished to be! What have you to say?'UGG Boots Clearance With a heart-sunk certainty that it would be useless to say anything, I kept my lips shut and my eyes lowered. 'Down on your knees!' he commanded. 'Kneel and pray!' The others all knelt, too. My father's voice rose:UGG Boots Clearance ' Lord, we have sinned in omission. We beg Thy forgiveness that we have not better instructed this child in Thy laws ...' The prayer seemed to go booming on for a long time. After the 'Amen' there was a pause, until my father said: 'Now go to your room, and pray. Pray, you wretched boy for a forgiveness you do not deserve, but which God, in His mercy, may yet grant you. I will come to you later.'Clearance UGGS In the night, when the anguish which had followed my father's visit was somewhat abated, I lay awake, puzzling. I had had no idea of wishing for a third hand, but even if I had . . .? If it was such a terrible thing just to think of having three hands, what would happen if one really had them — or anything else wrong; such as, for instance, an extra toe —? And when at last I fell asleep I had a dream. We were all gathered in the yard, just as we had been at the last Purification. Then it had been a little hairless calf that stood waiting, blinking stupidly at the knife in my father's hand; this time it was a little girl, Sophie, standing barefooted and trying uselessly to hide the whole long row of toes that everyone could see on each foot. We all stood looking at her, and waiting. Presently she started to run from one person to another, imploring them to help her, but none of them moved, and none of their faces had any expression. My father Ugg boots clearancestarted to walk towards her, the knife shining in his hand. Sophie grew frantic; she flitted from one unmoving person to another, tears running down her face. My father, stern, implacable, kept on coming nearer; still no one would move to help her. My father came closer still, with long arms outspread to prevent her bolting as he cornered her. He caught her, and dragged her back to the middle of the yard. The sun's edge began to show above the horizon, and everyone started to sing a hymn. My father held Sophie with one arm just as he had held the struggling calf. He raised his other hand high, and as he swept it down the knife flashed in the light of the rising sun, just as it had flashed when he cut the calf's throat.... If John and Mary Wender had been there when I woke up struggling and crying, and then lay in the dark trying to convince myself that the terrible picture was nothing more than a dream, they would, I think, have felt quite a lot easier in their minds. 4 This was a time when I passed out of a placid period into one where things kept on happening. There wasn't much reason about it; that is to say, only a few of the things were connected with one another: it was more as if an active cycle had set in, just as a spell of different weather might come along. My meeting with Sophie was, I suppose, the first incident; the next was that Uncle Axel found out about me and my half-cousin, Rosalind Morton. He — and it was lucky it was he, and no one else — happened to come upon me when I was talking to her. It must have been a self-preserving instinct which had made us keep the thing to ourselves, for we'd no active feeling of danger - I had so little, in fact, that when Uncle Axel found me sitting behind a rick chatting apparently to myself, I made very little effort to dissemble. He may have been there a minute or more before I became aware of somebody just round the corner of my eye, and turned to see who it was.
