Yes they were, also Gorky's Zygotic Mynci. With the Welsh and Scottish influence on early country their must be some bands that carry on the tradition from that part of the world.

the commander cody “lost in the ozone” record is a classic, “seed and stems,” “wine wine wine,” and their “beat me daddy..” is redundant but fun. i still prefer their “hot rod lincoln” to the original.

less “country rock” and more “country that rocks” is buck owens and his buckaroos, you’ll never listen to gram parsons again.

love that ween record, “she takes all my money and leave me no SMOKES.” preach.

When I was listening to The Marshall Tucker Band last night i had no idea they were responsible for that very annoying “Can’t You See” I always assumed it was The Allman Brothers.

I never thought when I joined this forum I'd be on here discussing this type of music!

I actually play flatpick guitar in a bluegrass/old-time band so this stuff is very much close to my heart. There's not normally much crossover with the modular synth side of things :hihi:

I'm not sure whether Billy Strings fits within the scope of what you're looking for but in terms of someone doing something progressive with country/bluegrass music that's not just watering it down into 'Americana-lite' he's yer man. Awesome player and great songwriter too.

Thanks for that, a bit straight forward but enjoyable, glad he picked up a banjo instead of becoming a soundcloud rapper.
