Buick MacKane

Called after a T. Rex monitor by founders Alejandro Escovedo, bassist David Fairchild and drummer Glenn Benavides, Buick MacKane combined rootsy rock and roll with edgier types of the 1970s like garage area rock and roll and glam. The loose quartet was created in 1989 when Benavides (previously of Doctors Mob) and Fairchild asked Escovedo to jam with them immediately after the separation of Escovedo’s music group the real Believers. After dropping initial guitarist Thierry LeCoz, the trio discovered Austin nightclub regular Joe Eddy Hines and started recording tunes in 1993 for that which was later on released as The Pawn Store Years. Finally, in 1997, the record made an appearance on Rykodisc.
