Murry Hammond

Murry Hammond co-founded Old 97's - playing bass; writing and singing songs; and occasionally playing guitar. In 2008 he appears on the 97's Blame it on Gravity and his solo recording I Don't Know Where I'm Going But I'm On My Way, on which he also plays harmonium and banjo. Murry Hammond was born and raised in the rural outpost of Boyd, Texas, USA, where - like most places in his home state - the sounds of steam engines carried for miles. As soon as he graduated high school, Murry made tracks to Dallas, helping to deŽne a burgeoning punk scene that was equal parts psychedelic pop and slam dancing - even publishing his own 'zine.
