You probably already know the story with Mulehead: 'long about the late '90s, Kevin Kerby, the poet-philosopher and chronicler of youthful languor, departs Ho-Hum, one of the best and best-loved bands to come out of Little Rock in the last 20 years.

Along with rock yeomen Dave Raymond, Brent LaBeau and Geoff Curran, Kerby starts Mulehead, which, with a bit of luck, a lot of talent and (probably) a not insignificant amount of JB Weld, proves to be another one of the best and best-loved bands to come out of Little Rock in the last 20 years.

Mulehead proceeds to cut several albums' worth of superb country rock 'n' roll as good as nearly any by its peers (and a damn sight better than most). Our heroes record their third album, "Finer Thing," and then break up just afterward. Then a few years later, they get back together and start playing the odd show here and there, which is excellent.

The opening act is the venerable Brother Andy & His Big Damn Mouth.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
