Maylene and the Sons of Disaster is an American, Southern band formed in 2004 from Alabama. In 2005, MASOD penned with Mono vs. Stereo and let loose their their self-titled album. Wikipedia notes “The band name and concept are based on the legend of the criminal gang of Ma Barker and her sons, noting that evil lifestyles will be met with “divine justice”
In an interview, Dallas Taylor said: “What has always struck me about the Ma Barker story is how much it symbolizes the idea of ‘what goes around, comes around.’ Divine justice is unavoidable. When I was a kid, I would see re-enactments of the Barker shooting in Ocala every year with my Grandpa, and it was as if Ma Barker and her sons were still screaming their story to anyone who would listen. Maylene and the Sons of Disaster is made up of five dudes who play the role of the Barker sons, and in these songs we speak as though we were them, telling any who would listen that a life lived unjustly will meet divine justice on the other side. We also wanted to think of the most crazy backwoods theme possible for this band. Since Ma was backwoods, and we are backwoods, this is the way it had to be.”
When asked if they play Christian music, Taylor admits that “For us our faith is what makes us. We believe in showing our fans respect and kindness. I love it when bands minister, as long as their lifestyle off the stage lives up to their life on stage. Nowadays it is kinda cliche in some markets to be a Christian band but being that in itself is hard and sometimes can put a bull’s eye on your back. It is not an easy thing sometimes, but no one is perfect. But living to the standards of what you preach and talk about is a big deal and something we chose to do everyday.”
Taylor has also been quoted as saying that he is tired of bands that try to play off their Christian background or message to sell records or to perpetuate their popularity and stated: “I want every kid to know I am not going to change who I really am to sell records. I mean, I absolutely hate shoving things down people’s throats, but hiding who you are is just as bad.”
“They definitely sound like they’re from Red Deer Alberta”
