The Sandwitches – Play It Again Dick

• “Play It Again Dick” set to a picture of the housing album cover.

7.7 “Great Alternative Country from the USA”

From their album “Our Toast” (Empty Cellar EMP-023) released in June 2015.

The Sandwitches from San Fran are (sorry, were) Heidi Alexander (guitar, vocals); Grace Cooper (guitar, vocals) and Roxanne Young (drums, vocals). Guesting on this album is James Finch Jr on bass.

Their brand of country grunge appeals greatly to me, and puts me in mind of old favourites such as Tarnation, Geraldine Fibbers, Neko Case and such-like.

Alas, continuing in the fine Jukebox Rebel tradition of being late to every party ever, I can tell you that this album was their parting gift to the world as The Sandwitches; they’re moving on to all sorts of other projects after several years together.

Cracking swansongs though; way to go gals.

Heard on Mark Whitby’s July 2015 show on Dandelion Radio.

Get it at Bandcamp.
