with a side of Squat Club Swing, served on the street at the back of the breadline with a theatrical flare, a political edge, and brimming with humor.
The Recession Special formed in quarantine during the summer of 2020. Dusty The Kid (guitar/banjo) and "Bucky-Eyed" Geoffrey Taylor (fiddle) started busking together in downtown Missoula, MT in the wake of the collapse of the live music industry.
Soon joined by Finn "Stovepipe" Carroll on bass and Thrift Storrs Bishop on washboard, the group began to amass a small following of tramps, local characters, and college students hungry for the return of live music.
Taking their name from the Old Post Pub's once fabled menu item for the down-and-out, the band seeks to bring the spirit of resistance and resilience back to folk music. They pour whiskey on the fiddle and the crowd, and remind listeners that, no matter how hard times get, there's always a place for dancing in the revolution.
