Slim Cessna's Auto Club
From Denver, Colorado comes Slim Cessna's Auto Club. Led by Slim Cessna himself, he and his band of old traditionalists have been around in one form or another since 1993. Performing in area dives and opening up shows for Johnny Cash, Cracker, and Kristen Hersh. The sound is classic country there's no doubt about it. Elements of rock and bluegrass seep through in the performance but this ain't no ya'll-ternative act--this music will have meaning for years to come. Slim delivers his lyrics with the fervor of a gospel choir. He explains, "I don't know if the Bible is true or not, but Jesus and Satan have becomes like family." SCAC just released their third recording "Always Say Please and Thank You" on Alternative Tentacles Records. So how does a country band find a home in a record company that is the starting place of the Butthole Surfers, Alice Donut and The Dead Kennedy's? Former Dead Kennedy front-man and Alternative Tentacles leader sums it up like this: "This is the country band that plays at the bar at the end of the world."
