Product Notes

Seattle's SUGARCANE MUTINY takes two shots of single-malt rock and adds a dash of twang. The band's lyric-driven songwriting and power-pop beats blend the dark humor and storytelling of a Cracker or Wilco with the loud jangly pop of the Smithereens and Fastball. Whatever you call it, it's all-original Seattle rock -- loud, wet and quirky. The band took 2nd place in Roy's Battle of the Bands last year and their song Your Town won 'best bass in pop rock' at Garageband.com last fall. The band has been working the festival circuit with shows last year at Hempfest and Tacoma's First Night Celebration, and an appearance this summer at the International Pop Overthrow in Portland. SUGARCANE MUTINY has played in Seattle at Jules Maes Saloon, the Sunset Tavern, the Skylark Club, Redline Music, the Comet Tavern, Chop Suey, the High Dive, the Nectar Lounge and the Blue Moon. The band has also played regionally at the Red Room (Portland) the Wild Buffalo (Bellingham), the Swiss Tavern (Tacoma), Big Daddy's (Woodinville) and Flights Pub (Everett). Singer-songwriter Jess Grant has migrated northward ever since fleeing his hometown of Los Angeles, stopping to live and play in Santa Cruz, San Francisco and Olympia before finally settling in Seattle in '98. While a rocker at heart -- he fronts the world's only tribute to Joan Jett, Jett City -- Jess' acoustic music has been heard on NPR's Car Talk and at the NW Folklife Festival. Bassist Casey Allen has played with The Life, a Seattle pop-rock band that released two records on Green Monkey Records and made three Bumbershoot appearances. Next up was Jimm and the Boxes, a local band signed to Blue Rose, where they released a CD on Ptarmigan Records. His most recent project was Cats On Holiday, Cleveland Ohio's Favorite Mardi Gras Party Band. Lead guitarist Travis Hartnett spent ten years in Austin TX, playing with Britt Daniels in his pre-Spoon band, composing soundtracks, working with dance and theatre companies, and performing at SXSW three times. He has studied with Robert Fripp and is a former member of Seattle Guitar Circle. His local bands have included David Bavas and the Down Comforter, Electrochakra, Tableland, and the Steve Ball Roadshow. Drummer Scott Nordell spent ten years in No. California playing in comedy marching bands, theatre show pits and drum circles, along with bands that played everything from punk and country to blues and Motown. Later he moved to So. California where he played with Blue Cheer, The Coasters, The Shirelles and Fuzzy Logic, and opened for The Fabulous T-birds, The Stray Cats and Bobby Bland. Scott moved to Seattle in 2006. SUGARCANE MUTINY's 7-song CD 'Your Town' is available at Easy Street, Sonic Boom and Silver Platters around Seattle or online at CD Baby 'Each time I've seen Sugarcane Mutiny they've reminded me of the Smithereens if Pat DiNizio and crew ran a dilapidated gas station with a black and white TV in the office. This Seattle quartet plays rootsy, jangly pop with an emphasis on songs as opposed to the requisite instruments and haircuts...Tarantino-like stories with five fingers on the bible and two crossed behind, baby. Yeah, they're cool. These seasoned cats found a common thread - smart songwriting, stringent, catchy melodies and a dose of twang - on their self-titled CD that is spinning right now next to my black and white TV.' Brad Allen of the Weekly Volcano (Tacoma)
