“Nick Pivot’s A Guy, A Guitar & a Cheap Can of Beer features a song called “Fuck You, I’m From Detroit”, which includes the line “I’ve got a bunch of burned out buildings and dead bodies to exploit.” For that alone, he gets infinite props. That’s just fucking awesome. Pivot goes on to explain that we don’t wear fancy clothes here, because we’re not built for designer labels and snobby bullshit. We wear jeans and t-shirts. It’s just a great anthem. There’s some cool outlaw country on the rest of the disc, but that song should be a classic. You hear that, world? Fuck you.

“Must Have Been a Great Batch of Suds
Nick Pivot first came to our attention as the least hirsute member of Skin & Bones, a country music combo with an affinity for traditional melodies and more contemporary songs about urban dislocation. However, it was a song done in the latter key ("F*** You! I'm From Detroit!") that really made our ears prick up when it was performed at The People's Arts Festival a year or so ago. We now have happy evidence that Pivot is still in business and still sounding good. It's a CD called A Guy, A Guitar & A Cheap Can of Beer. Our boy took a 24-ounce can of Miller High Life into Oak Park's Woodshed Studios and cut a great repertoire of original numbers and a couple of timeless covers. There are copies at Gusoline Alley, the CD itself is on the jukebox, and you can google Nick's name if you want multiple stocking stuffers for friends and family.”
