From North Portland, Oregon, a bunch of multi-talented musicians who perform an energetic blend of acoustic/electric music of which the driving force is taken from the music and stories of simple lives and hard times. These tunes have been coerced out of our minds by various substances, only to be etched with ink (or blood) onto sheets of paper (or the occasional barroom napkin), then mysteriously transformed into wildly gyrating actions of human appendages onto the fretboard of various stringed instruments, or the percussive surfaces of sheet metal and skins, only then to be spewed out upon the unsuspecting audience in an emotionally charged discharge of vocality, electronic emissions and sound waves, through a smoky grid of uncertainty.
Of course, we also do the occasional cover tune by Steve Earle, Jackie Greene, Neil Young, Woody Guthrie, Johhny Cash, Willie Nelson, Willie Dixon, Townes Van Zandt, John Prine, The Beatles, Muddy Waters, The Stones... and the beat goes on.
