BEN MILLER BAND AV Club 5/13/14:If you saw ZZ Top last yearand who didntthen you probably saw the Ben Miller Band. The legendarily bearded trio took the Joplin, Missouri bluegrass act out on the road for both its North American and European tours, and has invited the group back to Europe this year. Miller and company dub their type of music the Ozark Stomp, using all manner of down-home instruments (washtub bass, an electric washboard, and so on) to make their tunes. The groups new LP, Any Way, Shape, Or Form, isnt out until August5 on New West, but A.V. Club readers can get an exclusive first listen to one of the albums tracks below. Hurry Up And Wait is a stomper, and fans of slightly sparer acts like Scott H. Biram should be pleased at the fleshed out sound. "I like the idea of saying something very complicated in a very simple way," says Ben Miller, discussing the trio that bears his name. "That's what we strive for musically, and what I strive for lyricallyto get directly to the point and save the flowery b.s. for the romantic poets.
