ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, mid-eighteen hundreds, there was a ragged band of outlaw pranksters and thieves. Sons and daughters of Indian, Irish, Scottish and African descent, they were notorious for their music and corn-whiskey, but even more for their efforts to thwart the “progress” of the railroad and “civilization” into their beloved little corner of the world. They became infamous for stealing railroad ties and steel and redistributing the materials to the impoverished immigrants in the backwater settlements. In time, most were hunted down and dispatched. Some fled to Canada and some walked the Trail of Tears. Some moved west across the deserts, to California, and some are said to have stayed behind, hidden in the green mountains and valleys to this day. ..

The Plankrunners draw from a tradition of ancient Celtic tunes filtered through the soil and waters of the new world, fused with the electricity of punk, concrete jungle rhythms, the auld soul in worn shoes, clear-eyed and in earnest, socially aware and spiritually conscious music to inspire movement of feet, hips and minds. Goes well with libation, love-making and war.

An amazing evening of good music by the Plankrunners in Arles, France
Traveling through Europe on business trips this summer I happened upon the Plankrunners both in France and Bonn,Germany. I heard them play live and then got their CD. Though they are better in person than they are on the CD their songs are excellent. I particulalry like the socially conscious San Patricios and their sure to be a hit song about a soldier going to Iraq- If'n I Die. The CD is great because I can't follow them around Europe where they are playing. If you can't catch them in person get their Hidden Country CD. You'll be mightily impressed.

Nightfalls has a guitar sound like the best of the 1960's.
I bought a CD in Sweden where the Plankrunners were performing. I also hear one of their songs on Swedish radio. The CD is outstanding in terms of the music and lyrics. Nightfalls has a guidar sound that reminds of rock I heard in the 1960's that I love. It rocks excellent and is supported by a fantasique bassline. Carolina is a great song and the voices do well together. The drumming is intense. I love this CD. It traveled with me back to Germany where I hope to catch another one of the Plankrunner shows.
