"Four-piece known for great, full of life live shows. Feels like old UT, Replacements, Johnny Cash. Rock hard at the same time make you cry in your whiskey jar, driving your truck on turn roads. In the studio putting out second CD. Have grown much over the last two years, lots of texture in music, but you must listen for it. Kinda like UT, it may sound simple, but listen good, you will be supprised. Thanks." (Russ Brown)

Notes:

Original band formed aprox. 13 years ago called Lighting Creek. The band consisted of existing members Bret Hamilton (guitar), Carlos Gomez (bass), and Steve Herrin (Drums). Over the years the band played the Baton Rouge-New Orleans area. In 1994 the band hired Russ Brown to take over lead vocals, guitar, and Harp. Over the last few years the bands sound has remained constant but grown with complexity and textures. Most of the songwriting comes from Brown and Hamilton, whose country roots drive deep, hinged on the punk sounds of early Replacements. The band has influences that stem from UT, Wilco, Son Volt, Whiskey Town, Replacement, and Johnny Cash. The band is now in the studio for their second recording, the follow up to Redemption, a 4-song demo put out early 1996. The new CD is due out early 1999; the band has been working with Down South Records based in Baton Rouge, a small label specializing in No Depression rock..
