Massy Ferguson, Victory & Ruin
You know only good things can come from a band that named itself after a farm-equipment company. But Seattle's twang rockers Massy Ferguson are not as hayseed as you'd expect. Their songs are steeped in the classic Americana of the Blasters, the Jayhawks, and the Backsliders. Rich with imagery of highways, truck-stop coffee, whiskey, road weariness, and bad motels, Massy Ferguson makes cinematic music about the blue-collar aspects of our country. This is what Jay Ferrar might sound like without his thesaurus.
