Slim Cessna’s Auto Club make Gospel music for a blasted world.
Formed in 1992, they have offered up their unique music across numerous albums and gained a reputation for their blistering live shows.
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 and has been, a mixture of every one and thing resulting in something new?); and after two decades of working and living as SCAC, they have created their own genre.
The instruments are drums, upright bass, pedal steel, banjos, piano, guitar, vocals and stories. They have recorded critically acclaimed albums on Jello Biafra’s Alternative Tentacles label. Indeed, Jello Biafra has described them as “the country band that plays the bar at the end of the world” and they have variously been described 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 and four accomplished musicians, SCAC is the past, present and future of American music.
