It's no secret that Slash Records alumni find their way to Porterhouse and our latest signing won't change that storyline! Chip Kinman of seminal California punk act the Dils and alt-country godfathers Rank and File, has inked a deal with us for his new band Ford Madox Ford. The debut 7" vinyl release features production, co-writing and backing vocals from Chip's brother and collaborator Tony Kinman. The release is limited to 500 copies.
Always groundbreakers the brothers again chart new territory by embracing American style blues, tossing it in a indie rock blender and then viewing it through a bashy punk lens. Ford Madox Ford have an upcoming residency in Los Angeles at Redwood Bar this May and tour Canada in July. Three O'Clock Train are supporting on all dates.
Montreal based Three O'Clock Train were a stalwart in the 80's and 90's churning out alt country goodness inspired by the likes of Rank and File, Del Feugos and Jason and the Scorchers. After an extended hiatus the band is warming up the van in preparation to support their forthcoming E.P. that will provide a new riff on four of the best tunes ever penned by bandleader Mack MacKenzie.
Entitled "Train of Dreams" the E.P. is today's take on four Train hits. "Fake Honeymoon", "Fire I Can't Put Out", "Hold Me Tight" and the title track "Train of Dreams". The songs were re-imagined by MacKenzie and Canadian Producer Steve Kravac and given a complete re-vamp to bring performances and production to current levels. The results are more in line with a Tom Petty "Wildflowers" sound than the scrappy punk influenced records from the band's past.
