Biography

The Scud Mountain Boys began simply as the Scuds in western Massachusetts’ Pioneer Valley in 1991.

Yeah, this is really good. Just like to add for the viewers that this is not much like "Massachusetts" in that it does not have a whole lot of backing instruments (including drums & electric guitar). Mostly just acoustic numbers with minimal amount of hoopla. Great songwriting and a few covers as a bonus.

this is an amazing set flat out..The second disc "dance the night away" sounds lush even though its simple acoustic stuff, very moody and dark sounding...country without the cornpone, but what really makes this is the "pine box" disc. the songs are creepy yet beautiful...music that sounds like it should be soundtrack music for the most dramatic scene in a movie...The Jimmy Webb covers on here are wonderful, especially Wichita Lineman.

If youre a Pernice Brothers fan, the voice is here but the music is a bit different...no matter how youre getting into this it is worth it.

I'm a big fan of country music. Old country, alt-country, and even some new country (Ryan Bingham, Sarah Jarosz, Hayes Carll). In my humble opinion (and lord knows we all have one), the Scud Mountain Boys Pine Box LP goes down as one of the best documents of the alt-country genre in the early mid-90's scene. You can put this eerie album right alongside the Jayhawks first Bunkhouse LP, Whiskeytown's Strangers Almanac and Faithless Street, all of Uncle Tupelo, and many of the early Freakwater albums. It's that good. And I personally disagree with other reviewers that their later albums were better. I wish they were. Instead, they sound to me overwrought (too many instruments) and nowhere near as heartfelt. I think it's because the Joe Pernice sound sounds best when it's really slowed down. Pine Box is, however, worth the price of admission. It's kind of a magical moment, I think, a statement that is a hard thing, for one, to capture and almost impossible to repeat. I'm thankful that they got it down and that they then tried other things, even if they didn't totally work for this listener. Highly recommend or just listen and make up your own mind.
