…And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead - Relative Ways
It was October of 2002. The Beltway Sniper had just been caught and I, along with my friend Kate, were traveling to a local hippy hangout where we would then board a bus en route to Washington DC to attend a peace rally. We were running early so on the way we stopped at a used CD store. After perusing the selection for all of fifteen minutes I had settled upon 3 artists that I had kind of, sort of heard of before. I settled on …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead.
We rode in a chartered bus all night from Ohio to our nation’s capital and while my cohorts, many of them older, sang their favorite songs of peace and love and happiness there I sat with my red Sony portable CD player listening to a band called …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead.
Love it. This is my experiment album this week, after a few-week-long dry spell.
