Skin Your Smokewagon started out as a song writing exercise. Songs came from scraps of Western movie dialogue. From song titles that made us laugh. From small bits of ukulele strumming or guitar finger picking.

Gradually a narrative thread arose. Stories about the view from opposite sides of the tracks; moments of joy and laughter; tragic accidents; revenge; loss; good guys and bad guys; love; and the hopelessness that comes when you get what's coming for you.

We pulled every thread we could grab out of the quilt of Americana music and old West story telling. When we wove them back together again we found ourselves with a garment that fit just fine.

"It’s these original twists on familiar themes that bring the listener back to the CD for repeated plays. Many of the songs do not click on first listen but as we decipher them song by song, the porkchopian gestalt begins to permeate our consciousness like the afterglow of a hayloft tryst."
--Hicks With Sticks
"Solid new album from local alt-country veterans. A common thread of ironic reflection on the peril of adult life runs through songs like Bourbon and Bile and I Shot My Wife (Again). With a sound that’s a little bluesy, a lot twangy, and a whole ton of country and some damn funny lyrics, it’s a witty little slice of Americana."
--East Bay Express
