Off the top of my head I can't think of a single thing that links Sheffield and Arizona, but the Fargo Railroad Co. seem to bridge the gulf seamlessly. Quite what a bunch of lads from South Yorkshire know about the drought stricken Dustbowl, or hauling heavy loads on American highways coast to coast, is anyone's guess; but their songs are, to these ears anyway, probably more Americana than anything coming out of the prairies right now.
I was lucky enough to see them a couple of weeks back on their home turf opening for Curse of Lono; not bad for a Dirty Little Bar Room Band.

I shall look forward to that. In the meantime, what do you think of Fargo? As you can tell, I'm quite taken with them.Delete
I like what you posted.The vocals on Coast to Coast remind me of someone but I can't think who!ReplyDelete
Coast to Coast is crying out to be covered; that much I do know.Delete
Those guys definitely bear further investigation...ReplyDelete
