Nine Pound Hammer

How did Nine Pound Hammer gt the band name - Japanese Gennou hammerThe American cow punkers who by now have been earning their daily bread for a quarter of a century as Nine Pound Hammer come from Owensboro, Kentucky.

They did not make a big effort to forge an original band name: they just took the title of a song by country and western singer Merle Travis (1917-1983).

And Travis himself can not be accused of too much originality either, because Nine Pound Hammer strikingly resembles the 'traditional' Take This Hammer; both songs were actually given the same number in the authoritative Roud Folk Song Index: 4299.

Active: 1985-present, USA
