BOD (8.26.10) The Goodnight Loving

Garage folk and a little bit of backwoods punk best describes the boys of The Goodnight Loving. GNL have been tackling the basements of Milwaukee and other parts of Wisconsin for almost eight years and with a few LPs, several EPs and a 7″ or two, the band is ready to break. Their new album The Goodnight Loving Supper Club was released in July of this year and it’s splendid. What made the band famous was their Trampled By Turtles live show style, ripping up the floor and bringing the house down. Supper Club shows they’ve matured, it’s not a “keg and a studio” record, it’s well crafted with intelligent lyrics and a giant wall of garage folk sound. Thank you James, Ross, Paul and Jerome for great music.

Hear something from their new album and my favorite classic track
“The Pan” – I think it’s a punk folk version of “This Time” by Inxs, but you be the judge.

“Dead Fish on The Bank” – The Replacements with a banjo.

Label – Dusty Medical
