|No time to shave|
Whilst chatting and having a beer with Adam Reichmann of Nadine in the Clyde Bar in Helensburgh, as you do, we got round to asking him to recommend some music he was into.
Centro-matic was the reply and shortly after that my pal Goggs and I took in a couple of gigs by them at SXSW and very good they were too.
They are from Denton, Texas and the head honcho is Will Johnson who is a pretty prolific artist.
As well as Centro-matic he had another band South San Gabriel on the go at the same time.
He had previously played with a band called Funland and subsequently released a record with Jason Molina.
Throw the Undertow Orchestra, Monsters of Folk, New Multitudes and Overseas into the equation and you can see that he has been a busy boy.
Not too busy, however, to record a couple of solo albums including Vultures Await which includes one of the tracks featured below.
As if that wasn't enough Sheryl Crow used to be his babysitter
These are for Goggs the founder and indeed sole member of The Thai and Kazakh Will Johnson Appreciation Society
Centro-matic - Ninety Secretaries Down
South San Gabriel -Evangeline
Will Johnson - Just to Know What You've Been Dreaming
