Description

http://sleepgunner.blogspot.nl/ recorded may 2012. we be trying to do a real uptempo Louvin song, in commodore 64 version. Sleep Gunner is a pair of Amsterdam-based drinking buddies that has fallen hard for the music of 1950s Alabama heartbreak duo The Louvin Brothers. The music that we both normally (separately) play isn't very much like bluegrass, gospel, or early country music at all, and thus Sleep Gunner is no attempt to be truly authentic in any of these styles. But it's also no attempt to be remotely ironic; we're looking for a tender balance between staying true and respectful to the original performances and staying true to our modern, arty, guitar-playing selves, for better or worse.
