SILVER HORSESHOES-S/T, LITTLE RED ROCKET, 1995, C-40, U.S.A
The Silver Horseshoes -S/T cassette C-40
Little Red Rocket,1995. Oakland, Ca
This little gem sold out fast and was only available on tour if you happened to
catch the band Daredevil during the summer of 95. The Silver Horseshoes was a
side project headed by Daredevil & Indian Summer's guitarist Adam. Tracks from this release would have nestled in quite nicely with some of the better lo-fi country infused
projects of the same period ala Palace, Songs:Ohia & Rex. These tracks were
recorded at a West Oakland warehouse live via stereo cassette, a very cheap recorder
at that. That said the tracks still retain a rustic beauty and deserve to be shared among interested listeners, we're happy to provide...
A lovely packaged release comprised of a die cut fold out chipboard case. lino-cut print of stampeding horses and an unlucky upside down horseshoe. Hand written name and label logo with cut & glued xerox info squares. Even the shiny red staples keeping it all together were a nice touch.
Just 4 songs of haunted slide and discordant country guitar riffs, singing, jaw harp & samples. The songs are sandwiched between repeating record loops of stampeding horses, distorted and tangled in a slightly disturbing manner, a glorious addition...
The line up for these songs featured Adams brother Seth on drums (also of Indian Summer), Billy from Ordination of Aaron and Daredevil, Nate (RIP) of Bubblejug & Gang Gang Dance, Fawn & Quinn from Tarentela.
