Break’s over: we’re back at it August 21 at Divan Orange

Happy summertime to all. We’ve enjoyed a nice break these past couple of months, but we haven’t exactly been slacking. The three of us have been keeping busy playing solo shows, backing other musicians in and around the Montreal area, and going out to see our friends Sarah Jane Scouten, The Diamond Roads, and Lazarus Moan launch new records.

Break time’s over though! We’ll be back together on stage Thursday August 21 at Divan Orange, joined by the ever-entertaining The Steady Swagger, a power trio that plays music they call Whiskeybillie; heavy folk rock reminiscent of Gogol Bordello, Tom Waits and Primus fermenting in a charred oak cask.

Fronted by two mainland pirates, with whiskey soaked baritone voices, The Steady Swagger deliver live shows fueled by a raw energy that has been known to inflict uninhibited swaggered smiles on men, women and children alike. Theirs is aggressively fun and has the power to get any feet stomping!

“Their music is explosive as gunpowder”
– BangBang, Montreal

“This lovely crew always, without fail, manages to fill the atmosphere with the most festive of vibes”
– Hot Soup, Montreal

“We’ll never say ‘no’ to a barrel of rhum!”
– The Steady Swagger

We can’t wait to see you all again!

New music: Unplugged at Feathered Serpent Sound

Once upon a time we were asked to record a few songs for a program called “North of the Border” on WEXT in Albany.

What we came up with was an unplugged version of “I’m Gonna Make Her Mine”, and an impromptu rendering of Charlie Walker’s “Who Will Buy the Wine”.

We recorded the two tracks at Feathered Serpent Sound in NDG, where we had previously recorded most of “I Stand in the Weeds”. With David strumming the acoustic guitar and Andre blowing the harmonica, we invited our good friend Dave Dixon to slap the rhythm on the upright bass, while Kevin made the steel guitar cry, and R.D. Harris kept the back beat.

Special thanks to Jacques Deveau and Louis Panneton for knowing which buttons to push, and to Patricia Davidson for making this session possible.

Anyways, we’d now like to share the songs with you. So here they are. Enjoy!
