A Burning Bus is iconoclast/legend Don Howlands latest musical address from his mountain compound, an exhilarating blast of oppressive fear and hopelessness. With beloved bands like the Gibson Bros and the Bassholes, Mr. Howland has spent over 25 years on the fringes, preaching his misanthropic sermons to a loud but minimalist blend of blues, garage, noise, lo-fi, and whatever else served his muse. Burning Buss debut 7 enhances Howlands trademark treble-tastic menacing sound with three guitars, bass and drums. The results are as huge, thick and engulfing as a fog rolling through the Blue Ridge Mountains. On the A-side, Jayne Countys Paranoia Paradise is ratcheted to its greatest possible twitchy anthemic potential, and the group really cuts loose on the free form flip, where effects pedals, over-driven amps, echo and feedback provide the soundtrack to your own bouts of early in the AM isolationalism." - Harvest.
