Excuse Me While I Break My Own Heart Tonight
When I haven't been participating in international blogging conventions over the last few days I have been mostly stuck up a Ryan Adams cul-de-sac
I blame KC myself for posting Gold. This in turn had me looking out his self titled album.
For those of you who enjoyed his early solo stuff before he became pretentious and prolific can I recommend that you look backwards rather than forwards and listen to a bit of Whiskeytown.
I've been listening to Faithless Street this week and what a magnificent album it is.
You should do like wise and while you are at it throw in Strangers Almanac and Pneumonia.
You can thank me later
Interestingly on Faithless Street he only writes some of the songs including some collaborations with other band members.
That would change fairly rapidly and the rest is history
Ryan Adams and Caitlin Cary have talked on numerous occasions about reforming Whiskeytown at some stage and who knows it may well happen
Whiskeytown - Drank Like a River
Whiskeytown - Faithless Street
