For this I would like to thank Benji, this is a damn fine album which I received last weekend, thx. River City Tanlines is one of the many outlets of Alicja Trout's talents. Alicja plays with bands such as the Lost Sounds and Mouserocket, she also runs a label (Contaminated Records) and a recording studio as well!!! This is their debut CD, it's a compilation of their 3 previously released and impossible to find 7"s ( an edition of 300 on Italy's Goodbye Boozy Records, an edition of 700 on Nashville's Misprint Records, and an edition of 500 on Alicja's own Contaminated Records) plus 3 brand new tracks, released to coincide with RCTL's first ever European tour!. Here's a brief bio of RCTL I've found:

Taking their cues from 1970s punk, Runaways-influenced hard rock, and North Mississippi blues, the River City Tanlines formed from the ashes of several local bands in Memphis, TN. Singer/guitarist Alicja Trout -- an established songwriter with ties to such Memphis-based groups as the Lost Sounds, Destruction Unit, Black Sunday, and Mouserocket -- founded the trio in the early 2000s with help from bassist Terrence Bishop and drummer John Bonds, both of whom had previously played alongside Delta blues artists. The band's synthesis of punky blues and garage rock found a devoted audience in Memphis, and the River City Tanlines captured their craft on albums like I'm Your Negative.
