Biography

Tucson, AZ-based band specializing in “Crumbly Alt-.”

Golden Boots is an alt-alt country band from the American Southwest, home to open spaces, Roy Rogers, and the Hydrogen Bomb. Born seven years ago, despite pleas to preserve the health of the mother, Golden Boots has managed to win over the jaded and faded from Tucson to France. Their warped and fractured mixture of psychedelic rock, folk and country has drawn comparisons to Alex Chilton, The International Submarine Band, Beck, and the Monkees.

The first four years can be summed up by two suitcases overflowing with strings of primitive lo-fi four track tapes and a handful of performances shifting around a hodgepodge of instruments.

New to Tucson, Philadelphia area transplants Dimitri Manos & Ryen Eggleston met each other in 2001 for the first time at a neighborhood pancake breakfast. After a tentative noodling session the pair decide to embark on a song writing screed that culminated in the first collection of recordings ambitiously entitled “Super Gold”. Coincidentally they have never eaten pancakes since. Over the course of the next three years the duo; along with friend/engineer Nathan Sabatino, continued to write, record & produce several more song collections combining stylistic modes as bizarre and varied as the lyrical meanderings. The occasional performance featured Dimitri & Ryen trading songs and rooting through a grab bag of instruments in an entertainingly frantic (& often comical) attempt to “cover” all the parts.
