Engaging, riveting, sad and humorous; demanding the audience to participate both live and while listening to their albums; Slim Cessna's Auto Club has been branded with every musical description possible. This seems fitting, as SCAC describes their music as American (Is that not what America is and has been, a mixture of every one and thing resulting in something new?); and after a decade of working and living as SCAC, they have created their own genre.

The instruments are drums, upright bass, pedal steel, banjos, piano, guitar, vocals and stories. They have recorded critically acclaimed albums (Village Voice, Denver Post, San Francisco Chronicle) on Jello Biafra's Alternative Tentacles label. Spin Magazine and No Depression have described them as the best live band in America. The songs are each thoughtfully crafted with unique arrangements, executed by superb musicianship, then fully realized through original, insightful and intelligent lyrics. With two of the most charismatic frontmen around (Westword) and four accomplished musicians (Wovenhand, Delta 72, 16Horsepower), SCAC is the past, present and future of American music.

Slim Cessna's Auto Club is from Denver, Colorado.

"This is the country band that plays the bar at the end of the world."

"For years, the Auto Club has been considered the best live band in Denver. Hell, they might be the best band in America as well!"

"But the best band at SXSW was Slim Cessna's Auto Club, a Denver 6 piece that combines the best of bluegrass and backwardass-like a crazed punk band crashing into a gospel hoe-down, the band swerved preachy to creepy with a downhome flair."

"Haunting and sometimes unsettling, their music takes the best of Hank Williams, Johnny Cash and the high theater to arrive at a sound that strikes at the heart of the listener."

"What do you get when you take the hillbilly son of a southern baptist preacher, fill him with Jim Beam and hand him over to Jello Biafra's Alternative Tentacles record label? Slim Cessna's Auto Club, which has to be one of the more bizarre and welcome bands signed to the notoriously hardcore punk label."

"I admire AT for releasing this, this is straight up, no bullshit old school country, replete with slide guitars and all types of crooning and yodeling. And you know what? It's really fucking cool."

"Cessna doesn't so much sing as he does preach his third album...Cessna's stage becomes his pulpit, and his sermon is full of pure country, evolutionary gospel and bluegrass, and some good old fashioned cowboy songs."
