Song of the Day – Dec. 6 2007

If I had a honkytonk band I would have loved a name like this…

 Here’s Madison Wisc.’s Jim James and the Damn Shames with “Fast Freightrain”

Woke up on a New Year’s Day, Michael Gruber’s garage futon after a “Swank at the Bank” party and there’s the first verse.

Driving a delivery truck full of hardware and cheap Chinese baubels around south central Wisco, a trip to Denver, and the last wrong turn on a long ride home. That’s the rest of the story.

This version was recorded live at the Oshkosh Sawdust Days “Honky Tonk Party” in July, 2007.
