Including all original music, Gasoline Stove's cd is not "your grandmother's" music though it is described as "Americana." You might guess from the title that the songs are varied and about mostly unusual subjects. These are Scott Morgan's thoughts and visions flowing without punctuation (no periods). From the title track "Vultures on the Mainframe" : I've seen the vultures dig a man out of his grave Clean him up and make him walk like he was straight . . ." Here is a more common subject, still with uncommon images, from "Much": Oh me oh my let it rain come inside She takes comfort in knowing that my soul has not died When the timbers quake and the hours do sing You know the wind blows my heart back to you . . ."
From the Gasoline Stove website: is a timeless five piece band, mixing old country, folk, gospel, americana, rock and roots together to create dramatic but playful blues ballads. Rousing harmonies, accordion, piano and a slapping upright bass lead this storytelling extravaganza.
I first heard this band, playing original music, lyrical story telling really, at Johnny's in Carrboro several years ago and have been a fan though don't get out to hear them often. Next up for them is The Roost on Thursday June 4, 5 - 8pm and then later in June they will be back at City Tap and then at Saxapahaw.
