Evening Bells was formed by Finn Swingley after leaving The Saturday Nights in 2008. Joe Daley was always going to be the drummer, and so he is. For a while various incarnations were attempted including various members of Demilos and a few outside musicians. In the end Tina Barbieri decided to lend her considerable talents to the mix and a power pop trio was born. The Tonight EP was completed in mid 2009 and a full album titled Cargo Cult was released in late 2010. However, after the album was completed Finn decided to put the band to bed. There is one more 'single' still in the bag and soon to be made available.
These are the final tunes recorded by the band, a pair of Lee Hazlewood covers, more or less just for the heck of it. The first track "Hey Cowboy" features a sexy duet between Joe Daley and Tina Barbieri and some tasty Telecaster licks from Finn Swingley. "No Train To Stockholm" features Finn slightly updating Hazlewood's lyric on this classic anti-war tune.
Our one and only full length album now available for free download.
Recorded by Joe Daley, expertly mixed by our good friend Brian Goodheart and masterfully mastered by Mr. Carl Saff.
The Big Star / Alex Chilton covers are rehearsal recordings for the Alex Chilton Birthday Bash at Empty Bottle, 2008. "Two Headed Boy" was recorded for a covers album project on the website rateyourmusic.com. "That's Fantastic Mother Church" is a cover of a Robyn Hitchcock song, recorded live. "Beyond Repair" was written by Tina Barbieri. We tried to convince her to put it on the Cargo Cult album, but she felt it didn't fit and was probably saving it for a forthcoming solo album. I convinced her to let me put it out there though, so enjoy. "Easy Grace" is an old song, recorded at practice with Brian Daley on the bass. "The Mountain" was more or less a solo song, recorded before the band was even formed, but it features Joe on drums and Tina on backing vocals, so I decided it belonged here. Unfortunately the original digital tracks got scrambled, so this is only a rough mix and the only one we'll ever have most likely.
