Right on! I got on to George Clinton and gang because of my soul bros., pack in the early 70s. Blind Willie taught me the 8 ball shot! Although, those guys would look at me kind of funny when I would play a little Merle Haggard. So I think I know where your coming from...Ah, memories! I just wish my short term was a bit better! - Happy Trails
Not that I'm obsessed or anything, but I've seen them live 6 times and have every album, even including Whiskey, Painkillers etc. and don't understand why they are so undiscovered. But then again maybe I'm a bit smug cos I have! As I keep telling them at gigs, they should get a slot on Jools Hollands 'Later' show on the BBC.
Just confirmed Willy is playing at our club night on Friday. We're super excited, can't wait!
If anyone is around Brixton and at a loose end, it's going to be a great night!
RF really has a handle on the disappearing reality of the forgotten places and people of the Sierras. Any time I got homesick for Reno, I could just fire up one of their tracks and feel like I was bicycling down Fourth Street.
Surely one of the most underlistened, underrated bands on Last.fm and music in general. It's genuinely sad that so few people know about this great band. They're awesome live too, saw them at the Cluny in Newcastle when they toured Thirteen Cities a little while back. It's difficult but I'm going to go with WInnemucca for their best album.
Hey, just wanted to let folks know Richmond Fontaine will be opening for The Jerry Joseph Band on Dec. 30th at the Mt. Tabor theater in beautiful Portland, OR.. You can get details and tickets at jerryjoseph.com. Hope to see some fellow RF fans there!
Hey guys, I started a Richmond Fontaine because, well, it seemed like they deserved one. Nothing on there yet, it doesn't entitle you to anything, but I'm the only member so far so anybody signing up would help me feel like much less of a geek.
