Marty Duda's artist of the week is Wagons

From Nine To Noon, 11:06 am on 27 August 2014

Mebourne-based band Wagons is led by charismatic front man Henry Wagons. Since their first album release back in 2002, the band has been producing their own brand of American country-rock featuring elements of Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen and Willie Nelson along with a dose of Nick Cave. That Nick Cave comparison comes even more into focus on their newest album, Acid Rain & Sugar Cane, which was produced by former Bad Seed Mick Harvey, who also plays on the album. The band is known for their unhinged and very entertaining live performances and New Zealanders will get an opportunity to experience the band live this coming weekend as they play two shows in the Auckland area.
