First Attempt At A Band List

Okay, so I've dug through my vinyl and CD collection and tickled my brain a bit and have made an initial run at compiling a list of artists and bands that should be listed in "The Other Side Of Nashville" book. By no means is this everybody that should be included, and it's a little light on current bands, but it's a beginning. If any readers can think of anybody not included on this list that should be, email me at rev.gordon (at) gmail.com.

I've found that eBay is an excellent resource for finding Nashville rockers that had recordings distributed nationally. This afternoon I found a copy of Clockhammer's debut album (on CD) and the band's Carrot EP (also on CD) from one seller for a whopping $1.18 (plus $5.20 shipping). Yes, I bought them both, but purely in the interest of research, you know.

My collection of zines from the golden era of Nashville rock is a little light, old issues either loaned out to friends or shed in one move or another. If anybody has copies of Nashville Intelligence Report, Weasel Weekly or Metro music magazine (or other local zines) that I can borrow and copy, my email address is posted above. Now for the first attempt at a band list:

I remember growing up as a teenager listening to these bands thourghout the 1980's. I live in Atlanta now. I'm not a musician, just a fan of some of these (particularly Walk the West and Jason). Would love to read the book/see the film when it comes out. Keep up the effort.

I can connect you with a copy of the Smashers' album. I need to keep the vinyl, but you're welcome to make a copy from mine.
