Lakes LP

By   Released December 2005

All overdubbing was achieved by putting the first track through Sean’s home stereo and playing along. Despite this, the sound on Lakes is huge, claustrophobic and powerful, sidestepping any issues of fidelity through sheer dynamism. The album alternates between [...]

Trying To Get Home CD

By   Released March 2003

First and foremost, above any considerations of seriousness or parody, Wagons are a songwriting project. Henry Wagons’ skill with words and melody is a thing to behold on tracks like Send A Message and the album’s title track. He creates an archetypical, and of course parodic, country universe but within that explores personal ideas of [...]
