Product Notes

The Stragglyrs escape the present and head back to the early 1880s for a psychedelic country-rock musical horse opera about a mail-order bride from Charleston, S.C., who rides a train to join her farmer husband-to-be in New Mexico. Along the way, she meets a dark gambler who threatens to be the seemingly happy couple's undoing. The sound is a unique blend of different styles and musical instruments. On Downhill Sunset, the Stragglyrs have 4 members who swap lead vocal responsibilities and give the listener a wide range of styles. They are: Jim Braly - Guitar, vocals Bill Mishler - Drums, vocals Ken Long - Guitar, vocals Chris Purdum - Bass, vocals, piano, ocarina, trombone The Stragglyrs started in 2000 as a pick-up band playing just for fun, writing their own songs about what they want to talk about. As fan Wade Thomas puts it: 'The Stragglyrs are on their own trip, with their own statements, and exploring their own spaces along with their own family, friends and fans -- a real throwback to what music was about prior to the era of mass marketing of artificial stardom.'
