Beyond the great strengths of the band's pedigree and disparateinfluences, The Knoxville Girls create an entity which outweighs the sum of it's parts, spontaneously recreating rock and roll once again.
Written and recorded with a no frills, workmanlike approach at New York's famed Funhouse studio, The Knoxville Girls have crafted an instinctively immediate debut recording, reflectively titled, "Knoxville Girls".
"Knoxville Girls" has drawn comparisons to Charlie Feathers as backed by the Velvet Underground, also bringing to mind the thin wild mercury sound of Newport era Dylan, or music that could be described as "country no wave". "Knoxville Girls" is a travelogue of American musical styles, like a gap toothed jukebox floating in the grimy Hudson river, spilling into the muddy Mississippi and out to the Gulf Of Mexico.
On their debut offering, the Knoxville Girls are proud to bring you a timely yet timeless collection of songs. With interplay of three guitars careening into each other like subway trains derailed, a truncheon-like backbeat and a layer of farfisa, harmonica and saxophone sounds flying around like New york trash and Autumn leaves, the Knoxville Girls are traveling to your town soon.X
