Album Notes
Music for music's sake. The Ruminants bash out a blend of dirty western ballads and provoking pop for an appreciative audience of drinkers, thinkers and dancers. As FFWD magazine in Calgary put it, “The Ruminants only use country music as a jumping point to whichever genre suits their fancy at that particular moment.” Amen to that. The Ruminants' self-titled, debut disc was recorded in the hayloft of a barn. A beautiful-sounding old barn. Ordered from the Sear's catalog way back when you could do such a thing. HonorBilt is the brand. There was a barn dance. The Ruminants were setting up, tuning up and opening the first cans of beer and STRUMMMMMMMMMM that old hayloft sounded so good, like old wood, country air and natural reverb. It was then and there that one of the guys in the band said "We ought to record here." There is some debate over who said it, but they were all thinking it. And it came to pass. And here it is.
