The Band of Heathens - Interview with Bob Harris
Bob's joined by The Band of Heathens from Austin, Texas. The band formed in 2006 when its three principle songwriters started performing together at a weekly gig at Austin club Momos. Largely improvised and unrehearsed, the shows quickly gained in popularity and The Band of Heathens was born. After releasing a 'Live from Momos' album they were named 'best new band' at the Austin music awards, and followed this up with a tour of the USA and a second live album. Their debut studio album was released in 2008 and, after releasing the follow up in 2009, the band was nominated for a 'New Emerging Artist' award by the Americana Music Association. They have just released their third album 'Top Hat Crown and the Clapmaster's Son' and they perform songs from it in tonight's session. These include: Should Have Known Better, Enough & Medicine Man.
