Influences: The Replacements, Whiskeytown, Drive-By Truckers, Gram Parson, Wilco,

Over the past year, you may have caught Andrew Vickery playing one of his many duo sets with local songwriter Ken Will Morton, but he’s had other collaborations on the back-burner for some time as well. In fact, he’s been playing “acoustic songwriter-type stuff” on and off with Joel Mooneyhan since about 2003, until Mooneyhan moved up to Kentucky. In 2008 Vickery started jamming with drummer Jeff Chipman, and a year later Mooneyhan returned to Athens. So, Vickery brought them both together, and the trio dove into louder, more electric-guitar-driven rock, rounding out the lineup with Stephen Ousley on bass. “(Ousley) has only been with the band since January,” says Vickery, “but he performed flawlessly at the bands debut show at Caledonia (in January).” The Worn Out Welcome is currently working on a full-length record at The Stewdio with Dave Sturgis (Standard 8, Zombie Halo), with plans to release it this summer. Expect some great guest performers to stop in and a lot more live shows on the way. If you’re into The Replacements’ propulsive jangle and Whiskeytown’s alternative twang, you’ll probably dig the tracks available at www.thewornoutwelcome.com.
