"You'll know him when you see him." In some Little Rock music circles, it's a bit of a joke about Andy Warr, the giant, neckbearded young rocker who toes that line between backwoods Syd Barrett and a "foretold" musical Moses for the Little Rock Sound. Since winning the 2010 Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase with his main band, Brother Andy and His Big Damn Mouth, Warr has released his Big Damn Debut in "Mystical Indian Hitmakers," is soon to release "Hell's Angles," the sequel to that album, this New Year's Eve, and has strapped on and plugged in as a regular member of Detroit rockers Sweet Eagle, Dixie metal outfit Iron Tongue and Southern synth-funkers Pilot Whale. As if he wasn't hard enough to miss to begin with, the unmistakable 6'6" redhead made sure he was omnipresent and inexhaustible in 2010, too. He makes us feel lazy. And short.
