The Court and Spark – “Your Mother Was The Lightning”
The Court and Spark did something different with “alt.country” than anyone else. There’s no pretense in their affection for country music, even though this San Francisco group is as urban a band as you can find. If you’ve been fortunate enough to hear them live, then I’m sure you know what I mean. If this happens to be the first you’ve heard of ’em, then let this be the rabbit hole that lets you into their sonic wonderland. Jimmy Page meets Gram Parsons at Brian Wilson’s house. Really.
