Bleach + Bald Snow Tires
In 2001 my most recent band, Hoss Williams, recorded a four-song demo, and each of the four bandmembers contributed one song to it. This was mine. It’s loosely about growing up in the country and being a teenager ripping around in clapped-out V8-powered cars with loud exhaust systems and little police supervision. I’m playing electric guitar and singing. Brian Roth played acoustic guitar and sang backing vocals. Dave Stallman played bass and sang backing vocals, and Frank Reynolds played drums. We recorded and mixed this ourselves. We never really finished mixing that demo before the band drifted apart, but this song was the most finished of the four. It didn’t seem like that big a deal at the time, but looking back, I sure wish we’d have finished all the songs and pressed some copies, even if only to better document some fun band times.
