MP3 The Digglers - COUNTRY: Country Rock
Stomp-rockers to tear-stained ballads. Stories of real people set to aching melodies and wailing guitar solos. Inspired by Gram Parsons, Steve Earle....with a little optimism shining through.
8 MP3 Songs
COUNTRY: Country Rock, ROCK: Americana
Writing about this album is difficult. It took about 3 years to make because we all have day gigs. Psychologist, lawyer, engineer, doctor.......so it was an act of love. When Jacob Dylan talks about how difficult it was to make "Bringing Down the Horse".....I think we should name this album "Bringing Down the Tank."
"This Ain''t LA" is the only Danny/Mick collaboration so far, but we''re pretty happy with the outcome and plan to continue the partnership. I think the song is about the dissolution of a mind and all the pain and guilt it paints on everyone around it.
"Fall Into Your Arms" is a love story.....about drugs. It''s sort of....wrong.
"Throwaway" is not autobiographical. My mother, of blessed memory, was not a "junky whore" and my father, of blessed memory, while an outlaw and a cowboy, was a stand up guy. The setting, the towns and such, were taken from stories from my parents. I have known a number of throwaways....with and without epiphanies.
"Cut to the Kill" is taken directly from the pages of a William Gibson novel. This character from like New Jersey, wants desparately to be from like Tennessee, and be this country dude. Gibson sets this scene in a country bar on the post-major-quake Oakland Bay Bridge....and as I was reading it...this song just kind of wrote itself. I have his complete library at my bedside.
I have hopes that "Eyes of a Cowboy" will become THE gay cowboy anthem.
"Smell of You" was written during a sad/angry/frustrated time. Images of storms, freezing, betrayal, and a succubus......I got better.
"Started on the Wrong Foot", the only cover on the album, was written by an incredibly gifted songwriter and singer, Michael Fracasso. Peter, our drummer, apparently knows everybody, and introduced us first to his work, and then to him. We strongly urge you to check out this very prolific artist.
"Bless My Hole" is about a guy who finds himself in the unenviable position of being schizophrenic and homeless in war-torn Kosovo.....I was watching a lot of CNN at the time. This is the rock debut of the Austin Sisters on backup vocals.
Like I said, we all have day gigs, but we have been together now for about six years.......and, at the risk of sounding like an arrogant asshole, we kick butt live. More to come.
