Chimes :: 12:00pm 30th Jan 2021

The Long Ryders were one of the great American bands of the ’80s. They came out of the L.A. Paisley Underground and pioneered a sort of ’60s and punk-inspired Country-Rock sound that presaged the subsequent Americana/Alt-Country movement. On this edition of Chimes we honour the passing of bass player Tom Stevens. As well, new tracks from Kiwi Jnr, Even, Shame and The Spires.
