"Possibly even more than Los Lobos, the Pogues were an inspiration for Ollin, because, like the Rodarte brothers, they were punk rockers who gravitated toward the folk music of their native culture. As Ollin developed, the Pogues became influential to the Rodarte brothers as much for their sound (torqued-up Irish reels) as their concept. " - San Antonio Current
The Amadans
The Amadans
The Amadans are Jon Wahl on vocals, guitar, saxes, etc., Steve Reed on bass, backing vocals, Bob Lee on drums and backing vocals. Musically? Well, let's see. Hmmmm.... How about "art-rock-country-jazzoid music? Jon Wahl was the front guy for L.A.'s Claw Hammer. Bob Lee was the drummer for Claw Hammer. Steve Reed, well, Steve's been everywhere at every time and is one of L.A.'s gnarliest electric bassists. Now they've all got this thing going: A potpourri of nonsensical ballads, waltzes, grooves or just oddness and noise performed from many points of view. A general musical and lyrical attitude from the hearts of country outlaws like Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson to mindwarpers like The Residents and crooners like Roxy Music. Live they're simply a trio. They used to bloat up to an octet but the trio allows for gnarlier dynamics -- high to low, soft to harsh, weirdo to garden variety.
