  • Slowjet (Iain Sloan's pre-Marshals band): "Slowjet" [Limited Edition 6-track CD]

    Prior to 'moving to Wynntown' in 2007, Marshals' guitarist/pedal-steeler/vocalist Iain Sloan was part of 'slowjet' - an Edinburgh-based 3-piece - alongside bassist/vocalist Scott Tobin (now of Dropkick) and Andy Weir (formerly of Chickweed) on drums and vocals.

    Although not a million miles away from the sound of the current-day Wynntown Marshals (by virtue of Iain's guitar-playing and vocals no doubt), slowjet were perhaps more influenced by the likes of Teenage Fanclub, Matthew Sweet, Bob Mould/Sugar, Death Cab For Cutie, with a little slice of Foo Fighters thrown in now and again.

    Recently uncovered in the 'archives' (aka 'Iain's attic'), slowjet's self-titled debut 6-track EP is a strictly limited edition release, and features fan favourites "SummerHum", the Fanclub-esque "Hear Me Out", "Colours" (reminiscent of Dinosaur Jr and Buffalo Tom in ther heyday) and "Time Waits", which recalls Husker Du in their prime.

    Although written collaboratively by Iain, Andy and Scott, all 6 tracks on this release feature Marshals' guitarist Iain Sloan on lead vocals as well as on guitar duties.

about

The Wynntown Marshals Edinburgh, UK

Formed in Edinburgh in 2007, The Marshals tip their hat to The Jayhawks, Wilco, Drive-By Truckers, Tom Petty, Ryan Adams & Neil Young.

Their sound can loosely be described as ‘country rock' with powerpop hooks, but they love layered guitars, catchy choruses and have an unabashed belief in the power of rock music as a storytelling medium.

The new album "The Long Haul" is out now!
