ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
When Mike Hodgin was 5 years old, he and his brother would repeatedly re-enact the entirety of Cheap Trick's Budokan live record, using tennis rackets in place of Telecasters. Their great uncle was Snuffy Jenkins, pioneer of the bluegrass banjo, but country music was always the enemy until his buddy Scott played Uncle Tupelo for Mike in college. He met Teenage Fanclub's Gerry Love at the 40 Watt in Athens in 1993, while on a road trip with his evil redheaded ex-girlfriend.

He always liked guitar songs about girls, but he didn't know his favorite music was called "power-pop" until around 1998, when he discovered the essential Poptopia collections put out by Rhino. He didn't even know he wanted to make that kind of music until he saw the Old 97's at Schuba's Tavern in Chicago, in support of their poppiest album Satellite Rides. Their chocolate & peanut, power-pop & country approach finally made him think, "I can do that."

Since then, he's played in rock'n'roll, alternative country, punk, and garage bands, and he always manages to inject a little pop into the proceedings.

Mike is also the host of Open Mic Night at Dr. Bombay's Underwater Tea Party in Atlanta, and is one half of the songwriting duo The Sport Coats, along with Serenaders frontman Barton Caplan.
