ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Argentine singer-songwriter Fernando Viciconte started his musical career in Los Angeles in 1988 by forming the rock band Monkey Paw. Monkey Paw soon became one the most popular bands on the LA circuit. He moved to Portland, Oregon in 1994 and helped create Cravedog Records with founding owner Todd Crosby. Cravedog Records was one of Portland’s first nationally recognized labels along with the now defunct Cavity Search. In 1996 Fernando recorded and released the dark folk album “Season in Hell”(out of print). Accompanied by Dan Eccles on guitar( Richmond Fontaine) and Jillian Weisneck(Gern Blanston) on Cello, fernando and co. managed to create a claustrophic world that still bleeds with every listen. In 1997 Fernando released his country-blues opus “Widows” which featured new members Clayton Jones on drums, Joe Chiusano on bass, and Merilee Horde(Golden Delicious, Little Sue) on Fiddle. This album is very reminiscent of John Prine’s ultra raw masterpiece “Pink Cadillac”. Recorded entirely on a budget of 400 dollars in a friends basement during a four day alcohol binge, Widows is a classic Americana recording.
