The best kept secret in music


"New York Press Weekly Picks by Andy Rourke & Mike Joyce"

1940s-style country music -- guitar, bass, fiddle -- with a twisted urban sensibility. Songs about homeless dogs in Fort Greene, Elvis cults and Weekly World News headlines. The guitarist is a real live Nashville transplant; the bass player looks like a serial killer and the fiddler is a pretty, dreadlocked black girl. - New York Press March 31-April 6 2004

Feeling a bit camera shy


Joe Jerry Maynard's dad helped Johnny Cash quit smoking & once, while growing up in Nashville, he woke up at his baby-sitter's house to have sugar crisps across the table from Kris Kristofferson (who must have been there for reasons other than chatting about his favorite cereal). Point is: that's the circle, that's the time period that is most influential in Joe's song writing. Naa Koshie has lived a ton of places too, but most importantly New Orleans, where she was exposed to...well, New Orleans. Her dad's from Ghana, from where she gets her name and from where she has eaten its bountiful goat. Alan Young itinerant bass player has subsidized his dream of playing in obscure nyc bands by vending ice cream and working for a vanity press. He lives blissfully nestled in the cacophany of lower Manhattan, a true "downtownie." "I moved [to New York] just after punk hit, and I guess all three of us have touched down on punk at some point," rambles Joe. "I reckon that might lend our raggedy ensemble a certain bogus 'je ne sais quoi'." Naa Koshie used to play in a circus band. She does a great balancing act, juggling dozens of neurotic aquaintances all at the same time. Just as the band juggles a yankee brogue with a souther twang.
