Welcome to my personal Music Diary – today for the 14th November!
This day is a very special one for me, because it was the beginning of an addiction to a very special sound – the so-called Denver sound! On the 14th November 1996 I received my copy of the fantastic debut album from the amazing group Sixteen Horsepower! I came across this band by the sampler „Rolling Stone Presents New Voices – Vol. 8“ which was edited with the German music magazine. On this CD the song „Haw“ hooked me immediately and so I ordered the album „Sackcloth’n’Ashes“ from a mail-order in Bremen.
The band line up at that time was David Eugene Edwards, Keven Soll and Jean-Yves Tola. As a special guest Gordon Gano from the Violent Femmes played violin on some tracks during the recording sessions back in 1995.
Unfortunately it took a long time to see this outstanding band live for the first time – but it happened in September 2002. After the show David was so nice to sign my cover of the US release 😉
