Steve Westfield and the Slow Band



With albums 'Reject Me...First', 'Underwhelmed' and 'Stupostar' in the second half of the 1990s, Steve Westfield and the Slow Band did a good line in dark Americana, laced with a dryly humorous twist. The title track of their debut was, for me, their finest 8 and a bit minutes. Check those horns as they beckon you into the chorus.

This is really good, a new name on me. Can hear a lot of Neil Young in his vocals, which is no bad thing...

Like Scott a new name on me. And again like Scott you can hear the Neil Young influence. Good stuff

Yes, Neil Young meets J Mascis, a very fragile vocal. He fell off my radar at the turn of the century, I've no idea what he's up to now.

Neil Young fronts early Lambchop? This is great. Never heard of them but am glad I have now.

I've got a copy of Mangled that bought when it came out. I had completely forgotten about it. I'm have to find it before I hit the road today.
