Avis sur l’album

Once you get past the fact that bassist Jeff Eaton's instrument was once the gas tank from a pickup truck, these days Split Lip Rayfield aren't particularly far removed from what an ordinary bluegrass group might be doing, at least from a musical standpoint; though they obviously like to play blazingly fast tunes (just like the Circle Jerks or Ralph Stanley), SLR's fourth long-player, Should Have Seen It Coming, doesn't betray the group's punk rock origins until you listen to the lyrics to songs like "Redneck Tailgate Dream," "A Little More Cocaine Please," and "Hundred Dollar Bill." And that's probably the point — this music is steeped in the letter and the spirit of traditional bluegrass, which has always been a more rough and tumble animal than mainstream country, and while all four members are solid pickers (especially guitarist Kirk Rundstrom and Wayne Gottstine on mandolin), there's still a few rough edges in the group's playing and harmonies to remind listeners that these songs are played by living, breathing human beings. Whether they're going for laughs or playing it straight, Gottstine, Rundstrom, and banjo man Eric Mardis are all strong songwriters, delivering material that adds a strong present-day twist on classic bluegrass styles, and even when these guys are playing for laughs, they make it clear this band isn't a joke.

An outgrowth of the group Scroat Belly (though it didn't take long for them to outlive the band that spawned them), the trio debuted in 1998 with a self-titled LP issued on the Bloodshot label. In the Mud followed a year later; by this time,...
