Eugene Tyler Band “Useless Old Names” – live bluegrass goodness

The Eugene Tyler Band are a bluegrass power trio (honest, that’s what it says here) – and despite the image on the track link below they certainly incorporate banjo in their sound.  Take a listen to ‘Useless Old Names‘ and you’ll hear the truth of that.  It’s a wry number, riffing on surnames: “Me and my brothers Gardeners all three /  not bad at mowing can’t raise a seed.”  The song is taken from the band’s new live album ‘Thanks Cats.

It’s the most honest record we’ve ever made,” says singer/songwriter Eugene Gardner. “Most of our time is spent on the road, drinking in the sun and making music with friends, some new and some we’ve known forever. We’ve made a lot of memories at those shows and hopefully these songs make people feel like they’re right there with us.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
