BUFFALO KILLERS – ” Stay Tuff/Lost Cuts “

Posted: October 29, 2022 in MUSIC

This startling collection of rare and previously unreleased material showcases the brilliance of the Ohio trio, and reminds us why they’ve been the favourite band of artists such as The Black Crowes and The Black Keys

Among the stellar material included here are covers of “T- Model Ford”, Rocking Horse, The Nerves, and Eddie Hinton. Buffalo Killers’ sound harks back to the late 60s/early 70s when rock bands such as CSN&Y, The Band, Poco and The Rolling Stones were beginning to tinge their rock with a touch of country, but also holds its own melodically against the cream of current college rock.

Buffalo Killers are an American rock band comprising guitarist and vocalist Andrew Gabbard, bass guitarist and vocalist Zachary Gabbard and drummer Joseph Sebaali. The band was formed in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 2006 following the dissolution of Thee Shams, of which the trio were members. Buffalo Killers were quickly signed by Alive Records and their self-titled debut album was released in October 2006; “Buffalo Killers” drew the attention of Chris Robinson, who invited the band to open a string of dates for The Black Crowes in 2007. Buffalo Killers’ second album, “Let It Ride”, was produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys and released in July 2008.
