So, after a long gestation period (think Dubliners to Ulysses), here it is: BareBones and Cabaret’s debut album; or in another parallel universe, possibly scripted by William Burroughs, our greatest hits.
This album was made over the course of two days for $800 with David Briggs’ Tonight’s the Night model in mind, minus the tequila, hamburgers and brotherly love. In true time-honoured fashion, and we don’t claim to be reinventing the wheel here, this album captures our live ‘sound’ with scant overdubs or multiple takes on display. No, truly, this is the sounds of songs (remember them?) played directly with no artifice just as Sam Phillips intended.
Like the conquistadors before you, you may be in need of reference points or bearings to assist with your search for elicit treasures. I therefore humbly suggest this LP was informed by the Neil Young of On the Beach, a love of ‘60s psychedelia and British Invasion groups, coupled with shared love of the post-punk and alt-country movements.
For now, this is it – but we will be in touch.
