Album Notes
Thin Wire Fence are a 5-piece alternative rock / Americana band from the UK’s south coast.

Original songs combining distorted guitar and grizzled vocals, drenched in swathes of haunting and melodic pedal steel, give Thin Wire Fence their distinctive sound that can go from brooding to full tilt in the blink of an eye.

Formed in early 2013, Thin Wire Fence are:

DC Smith - songwriter, vocals, guitar, harmonica
Janey - vocals, percussion, melodica
Tony - bass
David - drums
Nick - pedal steel

Here's what Americana UK have to say about the debut Takerman EP:

"Rock n’ roll is the devil's music, apparently - then here’s 5 reprobates whose souls are lost, when they met at the crossroads, they strayed onto the wrong path, thank all that is holy. Beyond redemption, probably but certainly worthy of your ears, their wayward wanderings to darker pastures are the sort relished by fans of Americana this side of the pond.

Blustery, slightly pouty no-nonsense backwoods rock n’ roll, served up smoking by these “godless missionaries”, is on the back road stuff, dusty, sweaty, written in lumberjack shirts and truckers caps. It’s that punk infused country that works so well live, bet they are one hell of a band with a foot on the monitor. The trouble is 5 tracks just aren’t enough, they leave you lusting for more, teased and unspent. The moniker throughout is pedal steel, it is a rock instrument, here’s the proof, I can never have enough, and the title track is bristling with it, it brings a feel of floating, and when the semi reprise with its “la-la-la-la” refrains rocks up, it's in full pomp. Fans of Drive by Truckers, Presidents of the United States, will love to chug a cold one to it.

Stonesy in parts it switches back to Giant Sand the next. It sounds like it was written in the back of a minivan, amongst the heaps of still warm amps and guitar straps mended with gaffa tape. It is more than a decent fist of Southern fried rock, it’s a fist with tattoos on its knuckles and a silver skull ring. Dude we need the album."
