ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Meet the guys...



Rich Henderson

When not traversing the Southeast to add to his enormous vinyl L.P. collection or rooting, often in vain, for the Atlanta Braves, Rich Henderson devotes untold hours to his songcraft. In elementary school, he achieved the status of legend with an essay about frogs and a work of fiction in which Mr. Rogers and the Beatles incongruously shared center stage. Rich inhabits a 'bachelor's lair" in downtown Florence, Alabama, and revels in drawing the ire of Republicans with his seditious bumper stickers. Stab him, rape him, kill him...but don't take away his coffee. Or his turntable.

Jason Briggs

Truth be told, Jason Briggs would always rather be in the deep woods-- hiking, backpacking, or simply absorbing the indisputable splendor of as-yet unplundered nature. Fortunately for his bandmates (and clearly despite his preferences), he spends a substantial portion of his time city-bound, where he masquerades as a mechanical contractor when not playing bass. Jason is the, "I can build it," guy. Whenever the band needs something that is out of their more often than not broke price range, he willingly states, "I can build it." If the band needed a nuclear sub, he would figure out how to build it. Musically, Jason has long been deemed by the other members of Western Civ to be the group's most instinctively talented member, to his abject embarrassment


Bryan Cabler:

Bryan Cabler has never been able to decide if he'd be happier as a rock and roll musician, a left-wing activist attorney, a writer of bizarre modern fiction, an investigative reporter, or international pornlord. Perhaps fortunately, the latter four have taken a backseat to his drumming for Western Civ. Bryan spent his elementary school lunch breaks rhapsodizing with Rich Henderson about the Beatles, which made them decidedly unpopular in the Michael Jackson-dominated musical atmosphere of the early 1980's. When the pair finally learned to play guitars in high school and began their first attempts at starting a band, Bryan played guitar-- until every drummer for the Henderson-Cabler projects proved to be a lout, untalented, or a chronic no-show. Laying down his electric guitar with a sigh, Bryan invested in a drum kit with the intention of being a guy who played drums but "was not a "drummer"...with all that that implies." He has held onto the sticks since 1997, relegating his romance with his six-string to the front porch of his country digs, where he can frequently be spotted on a tractor or dove hunting in the cornfields.


Jason Hall:

Jason Hall's two-year tenure as guitarist and 'utility man' for Western Civ makes him the band's newest addition-- but in short order he's found his natural space in the dynamic flowing between the other three (pals for the greater part of their lives). Jason revels in life's simpler, if somewhat extralegal, pleasures in life-- like spending lazy summer days sitting up to his waist in Cypress Creek, roasting in the sun and periodically retrieving beer buried in a gravel bar, avoiding the watchful eyes of Florence Park rangers. With a tireless ethic vis-à-vis assisting his bandmates with complicated electrical issues in their firetrap practice facility, Jason can be counted on to switch instruments from one song to the next-- guitar, percussion, cheap keyboard, Mooger-Fooger, or Vibra-Pipes. Jason also enjoys outdoor activities, scuba diving, and surreptitious recording projects on which he plays everything. The true social butterfly of the group, he is the kind of person you can trust with your most prized possession or most humiliating college story.

I am an EX-DJ and this CD is what Indie rock is meant to be!
This Cd is what Indie rock is meant to be. It takes the raw discordant nature of rock and combines it with a real original edge. I bought copies for gifts...(Yes it is that good) I can't wait to see what they put out next!
