Terry Ohms and Them (Birmingham, AL)

“Whoever Ohms may be, he certainly knows how to crank out short, sharp bursts of stripped-down, grunge-folk distortion that are a fine accompaniment to McDonald’s often bittersweet lyrics. Less broad in scope musically than McDonald’s indie-smart solo efforts but no less energetic, Ohms skillfully bashes out songs on his guitar that bring to mind a punk Townes Van Zandt.”

Terry Ohms and Them hail from Birmingham, AL. Drummer and lead singer Wes McDonald formed this band in early 2011, after releasing two Terry Ohms albums when he wasn’t busy fronting rock band, Vulture Whale.

Taking the recordings live, McDonald enlisted Les Nuby (also of Vulture Whale) on guitar, James Brangle (Through the Sparks) on guitar and keys, and Drew Davis (Shattered Images) on bass, to form Terry Ohms and Them.
