The Damnations TX


Sisters Amy Boone and Deborah Kelly (not half-sisters: Deborah nabbed their mother’s maiden name) was raised within the Adirondacks, finding “house lessons” off their parents’ Bob Dylan and Johnny Money records. Obviously talented and enthusiastic about music, they understood while still youthful that hearing New York traditional rock r / c didn’t supply the breadth of contact with traditional and brand-new garage they craved. Rings like Kiss and Foghat interested them, but just until these were completed being teenagers. Hence, they loaded it up and shifted out to Austin, Tx, where they rented a dive behind the famous Antone’s, observed for presenting such alt upstarts because the Crazy Seed products, the Wannabes, and Doctor’s Mob. They started by striking the open-mike circuit as an acoustic duet on the since folded Chicago Home, and slowly created a reputation that described the Austin vibe: totally indie, unpresuming, simple, and hard rocking, with delirious hoedown and punk grafts similar to Lone Justice as well as the exploding alt-country picture most importantly. Although that they had previously not really concentrated on nation music — that they had discovered the Nashville audio oppressive, originally — Damnations (who added the TX to tell apart themselves from various other similarly named rings) became significantly countrified, without providing into the twang of irony and put-on a amount of cowpunk rings seem to want. By getting Prescott Curlywolf’s Rob Bernard in on guitar and periodic banjo as well as the Gourds’ Keith Langford on drums, the entire band sound abruptly became among Austin’s most effective club pulls. The appearance of Half Mad Moon, their debut full-length documenting with Sire Information, plunged girls (and young boys) right into a enormously effective tour, cementing the group’s status as a great, versatile, and incredibly musical country-tweaked music group within the truest custom of family skill and dues-paying benefits. Later shedding the “TX” through the music group name and departing Sire for the 3rd party Joy-Ride Information, the Damnations released their sophomore recording, Where It Lands, in 2002.
