Turkeyneck Lasso

This album is the first release from Russell Kilbey's new band. Inspired by Pete Dexter's novel Deadwood, it has an Old American West theme running throughout. Sounding like the soundtrack to a hard-edged Western flick it has proved a hit around the office of this reviewer :-)

It is an INTERESTING recording. i've always been a fan of the early Clint Eastwood "drifter" movies and this album could shelf nicely between the "High Plains Drifter" soundtrack and the movie music to "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly". it is twangy and atmospheric and swathed in tumbling tumbleweeds. Yee Ha!

Mike says

So far, Turkeyneck Lasso is really doing it for me. A short album, but a lot of fun. I can't wait to drive down to southern California this summer! I'll be running through Joshua Tree. Oh yeah!

[other stuff snipped out...]

But everyone who loves noodley Western music MUST get Turkeyneck Lasso!

Other Notes

You can email Russell Kilbey , who describes his latest musical venture as "having a budget of 52 cents". :-) Unfortunately this email seems to be down; all my emails to Russell have bounced for the last couple of months (as of May 1997).

The Australian TV show Good Guys, Bad Guys has reportedly (thanks Albert and Michael !) used The Whore Wagon quite frequently as the show goes to ad breaks.
