The Starkweathers- Danny Taylor

Danny Taylor is dead and gone.

The Starkweathers are more of a rumor than a memory in the Kansas City area. Only the most avid readers of No Depression might recollect that Mike Ireland and Holler evolved out of the Starkweathers. The rare 5-Song EP that contains this tough take on capital punishment was released in 1994. Don't miss the caustic Sly & the Family Stone reference at the song's conclusion.

I discovered this disc a long time ago in a galaxy far away (Kirksville, MO) at a used CD shop. Fantastic stuff.
