The Horrible Crowes - Biography
|last update : 15-09-2011 10:20|
|The Horrible Crowes is a New Brunswick, New Jersey rock band, composed of The Gaslight Anthem's frontman Brian Fallon and longtime friend Ian Perkins, which conceptualized while Perkins joined Gaslight on a worldwide tour in 2010 and the duo started writing songs on buses, in hotel rooms and even a bathroom in Japan following the earthquake.
"Ian and I had a ritual where we'd go to the back on the bus at the end of a show and play each other records, I got him into Afghan Whigs and he got me into PJ Harvey and one day we just thought, 'we should do something like this," Fallon explains. In that spirit earlier this summer the duo holed up with producer Ted Hutt (Dropkick Murphys, Chuck Ragan) to capture these songs on tape-and the result is something that will likely surprise even the most strident Gaslight Anthem fans in the best way possible.
"As much as I have this fantasy in the Gaslight Anthem of being Bruce Springsteen, I also have this fantasy of being Tom Waits or Greg Dulli," Fallon explains when asked about the catalyst for this project, which sees him playing keyboards and working with drum loops and string arrangements for the first time. "These songs are very dark; they're like hymns for lonely people," Fallon continues, "it's really a trip through a breakdown and that dissent into madness and hopefully redemption."
