Item ID: 279264

It could be a modern incarnation of the old blues scenario: A man sits in his single-wide mobile home with a primitive guitar (made from a cigar box, stick and 3 guitar strings) and belts out mean murder ballads and dark spirituals through a rusty harmonica mic. But it's not a "scenario." This is the real shit. Speal was living in the middle of a Pennsylvania trailer park. He plays a cigar box guitar. And he recorded this album on a simple 4-track cassette recorder.. " Stealing the Fire" features stark homemade recordings of Speal performing the works of Timothy Renner on a primitive cigar box guitar. It was a simple premis in the beginning. Speal just wanted to know what Renner's dark folk music would sound like if were soaked in Delta blues. Speal covers Renner's work from Stone Breath, Spectral Light and Moonshine Firefly Jamboree and solo recordings... The first 100 copies will come in special cardstock covers complete with an extra 3" CDr of Renner's new band, Crow Tongue, covering one of Shane Speals songs.

DESOLATION SINGERS - THE BLOOD BETWEEN US

DESOLATION SINGERS - THE BLOOD BETWEEN US

A limited edition of 100. At it's core, beneath the smoke, haze, dragging guitars, and broken reverb pedals the Desolation Singers' music is a slightly tweaked, very gothic take on country music. To be sure, Neddal Ayad and Sophie Nadaud are rockers at heart. And neither of ... read more »
