Jenny Don't And The Spurs set to release "Fire on The Ridge" and announce NL dates in spring20-12-2022
Portland Oregon’s Honky Tonk, Rockabilly, Punk anti-heroes, Jenny Don’t And The Spurs, showcases the diverse array of musical styles on their third LP, Fire On The Ridge, this coming Feb 10th on Fluff & Gravy Records. The band switches from blistering barn-burners to rambling westerns, to Patsy Cline style ballads. Over 20 years of punk rock behind them with their former bands Jenny Don’t And the Spurs embraced the classic outlaw country they grew up on with raw vigour.
The Spurs were founded back in 2012 by Jenny Don’t and bassist, Kelly Halliburton. Jenny had been fronting her own punk band, DON’T, and Kelly, was a 20+ year veteran of the Portland punk scene, with the garage rock trio Pierced Arrows (formerly Dead Moon) and with punk-rock destroyers P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. After the concept of forming a raw, real, and back-to-the-roots country band had taken hold, it wasn’t long before the couple was rehearsing a seminal set of standards by such influential early country crooners and outlaws like Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Ernest Tubb, and Hank Sr., as well as a sprinkling of originals.
Fire On The Ridge was conceived one night when the band were on their way to perform The Pendleton Roundup rodeo in Eastern, Oregon but were forced to make a massive detour to avoid the biggest forest fire in decades just off the motorway. On their return they were able to see the orange glow of the blaze in the night sky which soon became an apocalyptic sea of glowing embers around them that blanketed the otherwise night-darkened sides of the deep canyon through which they drove and gave birth to the idea behind the album.
With Fire On The Ride, Jenny Don't And The Spurs will be over for a few shows in the Netherlands:
