My Name's Hardin is a concept EP that takes a poke at the title of Bob Dylan's 1967 release John Wesley Harding. This six shot mostly biographical work is an exciting excursion through the life and lore of the fastest gun in the west, Wes Hardin and pays equal homage to Dylan's record and Johnny Cash's double concept album Sings the Ballads of the True West.
Drawing from Hardin's autobiography, his Letters from Prison and an assortment of other biographical and relevant material, Television Hill examines the Hardin of legend & song while serving up savory mesquite seasoned tales of pride, bloodlust and a cycle of violence that would ultimately consume the legendary Texas outlaw.
Cowtown caterwauling, gritty guitars and rolling hill country rhythms cleverly coalesce to re-create the cattle trails, jail cells and whiskey soaked saloons of the Reconstruction Era South in this half hour epic.The band's all-star line-up on this recording consists of Rob Wilson, Dave Heumann, David Bergander and Walker Teret with additional performances by Tony Drummond.
