Album Notes
THE GLEAM is a 3 piece "Punch Country" band from Chisago County MN. This album, "The Chisago County E.P.," is an ode to life lived the hard way. Drink, love, work, mundane routine revenge - these themes run in the blood of this disc. This is Alt. Country, Punk Rock -n- Roll for those who have been kicked in the mouth and liked it.

"The Chisago County E.P." was named "Best Album of the Last 12 Months" in the Minneapolis/St. Paul paper the City Pages, in their "Best of the Twin Cities 2005" issue.

"This recording is turpentine for a head wound & could very well serve as a staple gun for a broken heart."
- Fred Friction - 88.1 KDHX - St. Louis, MO

"THE GLEAM's brand of kickin' guitar pickin' racket serves as a nice reminder that as long as young men are ready to strum acoustic guitars until the strings pop and their arms fatigue country rawk will live on!"
- Nathan Dean - Pulse of the Twin Cities

This CD is hometown cool.
The CD sounds like a garage band gone bad (and thats good!). If you enjoy hangin' out in the garage listening to some down and dirty music, this CD is for you. Vocals sound a bit like a harmonized Joe Cocker with early Stones instrumentals..not a bad combination.

Concrete is hard because it is suppose to be. Music that lasts should be preserved. I think of these things when I listen to this album. Life isnt easy to explain, so take it for what its worth. Start to Finish this album is solid.

7 out of 10 with a fist full of paprika and a hint of Gordon Lightfoot.
Simply put: This is an epic. File this somewhere between genius and insanity for your listening pleasure. Country crooners with a rich sense of pathos and a thirst for the essence of something that is greater than the sum of its parts. Given that this is a fairly unknown band I will make the following analogy: Take the energy of the Austin Healy Band, the gritty rawness of Jerry Reed in his prime, and the explosive sound of early Petra, then sprinkle in a little bit of Spyro Gyra just because and you might be something near what we are talking about. Track 2 is pretty good.


Hillbilly Rock-n-Roll
Some good ole hometown hillbilly rock-n-roll. It's gritty yet
gots it's own style of effervesces. These boys are on to something here.
