On a cold crappy night in Seattle, we brought the spirit of the desert to The Tractor Tavern. The odds were pretty much against us releasing anything from this show because, when it gets shitty outside here in the Northwest, we get shitty inside. The drinks get to flowin' and the performance can sometimes get to suckin'. Add to that the fact that we hadn't really been playing much country leading up to this show and you've got yourself a recipe for failure.
Well, you can imagine our surprise then when the tapes came back and there was actually some fun, spirited and not so terrible playing on there. We keep working on our country set, adding and embellishing and what-not, so here's a little sampler of some of the things we did that night that haven't been put out there, LIVE, until now.
I hope you like it, we're still kind of a "rock band that plays country" but, given the current state of "real" country, I'd say that's still better than most. Welcome to Volume One of the Mid-Fi Field Recordings series.
