JENNY DON'T AND THE SPURS
Jenny Don’t and the Spurs are internationally known western rebel cowboy punks from the legendary and influential rock and roll underground of Portland, Oregon.
After the tragic death of drummer Sam Henry (Wipers), the band consists of vocalist Jenny Don’t (Don’t, Ladies Of The Night), Kelly Haliburton (P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S., Pierced Arrows, Defiance etc.) and Dean Miles (Rancid Vat).
While the sound of the Spurs is original and draws from deep wells of personal experience, the band pays stylistic homage to the greats of the genre – Patsy Cline, Ernest Tubb, Hank Williams Sr., Loretta Lynne, and all the rest of the real players from the 1940s and 50s – an era where the lines between Rock’n’Roll and Country were blurred, where the likes of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, and Carl Perkins could tour together and nobody would bat an eye.
The Spurs’ first single was released on Fred Cole’s (Dead Moon) label Tombstone Records, their three albums on Doomtown Sounds and Mississippi Records.
Even with a new lineup, after countless shows in the U.S., Europe and Australia, and three albums, the intensity and energy of their live set is a must for anyone who likes spirited, garage-inspired country music played with sincerity and conviction.
