SCUD MOUNTAIN BOYS: ‘THE EARLY YEAR’ AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER

28 May 2013

Originally released by Sub Pop in 1997 in the wake of the success of third album, ‘Massachusetts’, ‘The Early Year’ double CD package comprises Scud Mountain Boys first two albums, ‘Pine Box’ and ‘Dance The Night Away’ and is re-issued by One Little Indian on 8th July ahead of brand new album, ‘Do You Love The Sun’ - set for release later this year.

After being out of contact for many years, Joe Pernice (vocals, acoustic and electric guitars), Stephen Desaulniers (vocals, acoustic guitar, piano, and bass), and Bruce Tull (electric guitar, lap steel, pedal steel) reformed in late 2011, after which they announced the full Scud Mountain Boys line-up would do some shows in 2012.

Beginning their existence simply as the Scuds in western Massachusetts’ Pioneer Valley in 1991, the group played loud rock ‘n’ roll in local clubs and had an appreciable number of fans who would frequent their live shows. However, late at night in Tull’s kitchen, the trio would break out their old country favourites, playing the songs they thought too quiet and too slow for live performances. The band found that these were the songs they really lived to play, so they decided to make a change.

Though the band was initially lumped in with the alt-country scene helmed by Son Volt, Wilco, and the hordes of other disciples of Hank Williams, the Scud Mountain Boys have always taken their inspiration as such from hooky ’70s AM pop as from the dirty country road of Johnny Cash.

“Country in that the songs are the honest, homespun sort that characterized country before it picked up a blow-dryer.”
Rolling Stone
