Despite being in their 70s and 80s, the COUNTRY ROCKERS were mainstays of the 1990s Memphis rock and punk scene. In 1986, Memphis musician RON EASELY wandered into one a bar called Dennis’ Place. There, he saw SAM BAIRD, a school bus driver who spent his evenings playing guitar, on stage with a country band. Baird also gigged with drummer GAIUS FARNHAM (day job: warehouse employee for an ice cream company) and a bassist named MISS LILLIAN at a Memphis bar called the Sunflower Club, located at 2020 Lamar. Easley was a frequent customer there, where he and Alex Chilton would study the trio as they plowed through old Hank Williams-era tunes. Easley walked into Dennis’ Place looking to unwind; he left with a new band. “Miss Lillian got religion and quit playing the devil’s music, opening the way for me to slide in,” Easley says. And with that he recorded them at his brother’s studio, Easley McCain Recording, where Pavement, Sonic Youth, and White Stripes have recorded. The result is some weird, rocking, homespun country.
