Snakegrinder - And The Shredded Filed Mice (1977)

Real stunner from this rural rock outfit from Delaware whose only album was this 1977 private pressing on the Alligator Shoes label (Alligator Shoes 40004).

The album features seven original compositions combining acoustic, electric and pedal steel guitars augmented by some tasty keyboards. There’s loads of blistering, well-structured guitar jams, and a few Band-style rural funk vocals, with a of hippy psych interludes thrown in for good measure. The sound is unique, cool and beautifully played. The album rocks from start to finish, and is another one of those obscure rarities that should have enjoyed significant commercial success and those fortunate enough to have heard Snakegrinder are unanimous in their praise.
Absolutely nothing is known about the musicians who comprised Snakegrinder, which is extremely unfortunate as their sublime talents combine here to produce one of the finest rock albums it has been our pleasure to reissue.

Thansk for Snakegrinder! I've been looking for this for a long time since Radioactive shut down. I look forward to hearing it...

Your effusive promo for this is good enough for me. I'm convinced there's so much good stuff from the 60s and especially the 70's to rediscover.
Many thanks.
Blog on!

I have some info on Snakegrinder, and have been in contact with the pedal steel player on this record; his name is Tommy Wayne Eppes. I am looking for more info and will attempt a loose interview later on. Great band.
