THIS IS OUR MUSIC: The Bangtails – “Patron Of The Arts”.
Song from the EP “Hypnotic Downpour”, released in 1897, Revolve Records.
The Bangtails were from Kansas City. These days, the band is considered to be a minor footnote in the career of Archer Prewitt, whom he served as bass player for. This was the Bangtails one and only release, which is a shame. Sonically, they are awash in chiming jangle pop, straight out of REM 101, circa Chronic Town.
