"We're Bill Burroughs meets Jerry Lee Lewis at the funeral of Robert Johnson on the Millennium Falcon piloted by Joe Strummer and Neil Young," says The Gourds' Kevin "Shinyribs" Russell in an interview with William Michael Smith in this week's issue of the print product. He goes on to describe the band's fans as "hyper-literate, passionate humanists swimming in a pool of lager and lust, covered in a lonesome crust."
Good news if you're wanting to shed your lonesome crust for a night and bring a friend to the Gourds show tomorrow: Spune has offered two pairs of tickets to DC9 readers.
All you've got to do is be the first or second to e-mail me with the subject "Country Love" and you'll be on the guest list. Don't forget to include your first and last name.
