About: Slim Cessna's Auto Club New Album Title: Unentitled Street Date March 1, 2011 Alternative Tentacles Records(USA) Munich Records (Europe) Houston Party Records (Spain / Portugal) DESCRIPTION : Engaging, riveting, sad and humorous; demanding the audience to participate both live and while listening to their albums; Slim Cessna's Auto Club has been branded with every musical description possible. This seems fitting, as SCAC describes their music as American (Is that not what America is, a mixture of every one and thing resulting in something new?); and after more than a decade of working and living as SCAC, they have created their own genre. Unentitled is another highwater mark in the Auto Club's supremacy in a field they alone claim. Songs like "Three BloodhoundsTwo Shepherd's One Fila Brasileiro" manage to add creepy lyrical imagery to its jaunty chorus. "Do You Know Thee Enemy" uses Slim's trademark call-and-response vocals and "Hallelujah Anyway" has Munly serving as an ominous narrator. The components are drums, upright bass, pedal steel, banjos, piano, guitar, vocals and stories. They have recorded critically acclaimed albums (Village Voice, Denver Post, San Francisco Chronicle) on Jello Biafra's Alternative Tentacles label. Spin Magazine and No Depression have described them as the best live band in America. The songs are each thoughtfully crafted with unique arrangements, executed by superb musicianship, then fully realized through original, insightful and intelligent lyrics. With two of the most charismatic frontmen around (Westword) and four accomplished musicians, SCAC is the past, present and future of American music. Slim Cessna's Auto Club is from Denver, Colorado. * Led by Slim Cessna and Munly Munly. * Features members of SLIM CESSNA'S AUTO CLUB, MUNLY & THE LUPERCALIANS, DENVER BRONCOS UK, BLOOD AXIS, THE DENVER GENTLEMEN, and TARANTELLA. * First new SLIM CESSNA'S AUTO CLUB studio album since 2008. * LP contains a DIGITAL DOWNLOAD CARD for mp3 album and lyrics booklet. * Recorded and produced at Absinthe Studio, by Robert Ferbrache of Denver Sound fame (Slim Cessna's Auto Club, Munly, Blood Axis, Sixteen Horsepower, WovenHand, Tarantella). * Playing at SXSW in March; Europe in April thru June; Us and Canada throughout the remainder of the year (dates TBA). * Jello Biafra's favorite band.
