First Proper Review of the ...

First Proper Review of the Corvids' Fought Down: By Tony Pierce, who admits to a small amount of conflict of writes passages like:

when i say this is the best record of the year, you might not want to run over to the link to get it, you should probably walk.

me, i like the rock music. i like a little country tossed in there. i like creepy rollicking tunes and slow sad ones.

i like hearing a little tom petty mixed with springsteens nebraska. nick cave, gimme shelter, and blood and chocolate. and laynes baritone and humor definitely hearken back the days of country dick montana and the beat farmers, and i also hear some lone justice in there, peter case. [...]

layne sounds drunk, sounds like hes been smoking cigarettes, sounds like hes playing real music with real friends.

sounds like something paul westerberg would like to put together if he didn't have to constantly live up to the ideal of a genius. [...]

this record will start making you want to talk like tom sawyer.

Monday's the last day you can pre-order Fought Down for the low low price of $11 (goes to $12 after). The units should be shipping to the Reno home office within 10-14 days or so, and details of the record-release concert will hopefully be firming up in the next few days. Try to keep your calendar free around the Dec. 12-13 area.
