ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
10 tracks of storytelling weaving between country, blues, rock, bluegrass & murderous Americana noir. Stylistically mischievous, the Boys never settle for formulas & everything is up for grabs in the pursuit of engaging & entertaining the listener. It’s all about the stories all of which are….., well, dear reader, let’s go back to 1979……
Lead singer Simon Feasey leaves England with his brother Ade & heads to Louisiana to be near their mother & find work. They wind up working on off shore oil rigs in the Gulf Of Mexico. The opening track Oil Field Trash describes the hostility & violence surrounding migrant workers (some things never change) & details an all too common threatening incident the brothers experienced in a bar. The responsibility for another potentially violent mishap lies with the feisty Mr Feasey himself as documented in the confessional Wait ‘til The Boys Get Here
On a happier note, Stranger On The Bayou describes the sheer joy of Louisiana life for our young adventurers & the instant love affair the brothers have with Cajun culture. Friends & girlfriends make an appearance in Jackson Street, a bitter sweet tale of living of the small town American dream.
Two dark tales from older oil field workers provide the screenplay for Gone & The Third Time. These swampy grooves defy genre definition, the stories defy belief but they were passed on by word of mouth & now, slightly embellished, pass into legend via these songs.
Years pass, the Louisiana dream fades & Ade tragically loses his life in a car accident. Simon then writes the ballad South Of Lafayette which bridges the gap between 1982 & the present day.
Simon happens to bring this song to a casual pub session where it has an instant impact on composer/producer/guitarist Lincoln Grounds. More songs appear from the past & along with fellow picker Daniel Hughes something resembling a band is formed. Named after the pub The Bay Horse in the Suffolk market town, Sudbury. An easy decision…
The existing songs & basic ideas are further developed & crafted by Simon & Lincoln & the idea of an album is born.
Lincoln adds 3 songs into the mix. Red & The Elephant is the harrowing tale of Mary, a Circus Elephant that killed her handler and was subsequently hung in 1916 in Erwin TN. A visit to nearby Johnson City TN on a writing trip to Nashville confirmed that even local people were unaware of the tale but that’s another story.
Sober Fool is a cautionary Bluegrass infused homage to the Bay Horse pub. A simple celebration featuring Daniels rustic banjo pickin’ & some Mando-guitar tom foolery by the writer.
Finally, Lincoln writes East Tennessee. A different kind of story altogether, lamenting the cycle of human oppression that plagues the world with particular reference to the treatment of Native & African Americans by those who fled Europe in search of freedom.
The Bay Horse Boys has since grown with a rhythm section comprising Martin Bentley on Bass (Johnny Cash Roadshow, The Invisible Orchestra) and Damon Clarridge on Drums (Drugstore Cowboys, Sounds Of Simon) both of whom feature on the album
Enjoy!
