Editorial Reviews

Reverend Glasseye has often been labeled Dark Salvation Music; cautionary tales filled with American superstition and human frailty following the tradition of storytelling left by Flannery O'Connor and Edgar Lee Masters. The music itself sounds like an un. Coo - Coo Bird.2004

this disc was one of the first i found after finding slim cessnas auto club. im not an authority, but the scene in denver in the 90s seems to have been perfect breeding ground for a sound sadly overlooked. it seems every town has its great live bands,(i grew up in lowly jackson ms, where we still managed to find great shows on the weekends from bands like loppybogymi, a band i would have bet my house would at least been able to influence the kids to turn off the radio) but i am finding bands like reverend glasseye have fought the good fight even at the expense of their career. i refuse to believe that a major label missed the talent on this disc, and its reassuring to know that some bands are still doing their way. the last scene i knew of that made their music and let the fans find them was the hardcore scene in the 80s. even the grunge scene of the 90s was watered down by sony and radio, not so here.
rev uses real instruments(UPRIGHT BASS, horns, fiddles,etc) and his songs are without question a true reflection of soul searching and not a contrived pitch to a suit. this music mixes the true sounds of our time, from deep south country and blues to mountain top hillbilly and bluegrass. and not suprisingly, it comes out sounding like a heart wrenching jazz,rock,hardcore,soulful,noncomercial american music. and on top of all that you have the revs voice. i grew up in awe of singers who were born with their voice, from many strange sides(morrissey, jello biafra, robert smith, j mascis, glenn danzig, henry rollins) thier music was diferent, but the sound belonged to them. adam glasseye has nothing less than a perfect voice, and a gripping story. this is not the music of the youth, nor is it the sound that belongs to the past, this is the truth, no matter you age or local. i believe he writes his music because he has a story to tell, a mix of roger williams and oscar wilde. hank sr 2008 with a portastudio!

The release of Reverend Glasseye's triumphant new album "Our Lady of the Broken Spine" does not render moot this brief but brilliant release. Rather than a handful that didn't make the cut for the album, these are in fact older songs with which the Reverend simply couldn't bear to part.
