Out Come The Freaks

In the late 90s and early 00s I was totally obsessed with Americana/Alt Country music - call it what you will.

I went to loads of concerts in and around Glasgow put on by the late Billy Kelly and Tom Hamilton of Death and Taxes fame.
I have also built up a fairly substantial CD collection from this genre (he said modestly).

One band who feature are Freakwater the Louisville band featuring the dulcet tones of Janet Bean and Catherine Irwin

I have two of their records on Thrill Jockey Springtime from 1997 and End Time from 1999.

Given the relatively specialised nature of the genre CDs do not often spring up in your local Charity Shop and if they do I usually already have them.

Imagine my surprise, and indeed delight, then when I stumbled across Feels Like the First Time from 1993 also on Thrill Jockey but lisenced out to Germany's City Slang in a Charity Shop in Fort William.

Sit back and enjoy
