Whites Off Earth Now!! is the fascinating 1986 debut from the four members of the Timmins family known as the Cowboy Junkies.
Recorded by Peter Moore on June 28, 1986 using a Calrec Ambisonic Microphone, the Cowboy Junkies debut reveals the band's innovative sense of interpretation, deep, dark ethereal soundscapes, and a brooding, hypnotic, laconic musical style uniquely their own. Featuring classic blues repertoire written by the legendary likes of John Lee Hooker and Robert Johnson, Whites Off Earth Now also features a raw, eerie version of Bruce Springsteen's "State Trooper". This evocative sonic alchemy succeeds due to Margo Timmins's languid, haunting vocals, Michael Timmins's sparse, yet soul piercing guitar, Alan Anton's evocative, gently loping bass, and Alan Aton and Peter Timmins's tastefully, understated percussion embellishments. Celebrating the 20th anniversary of this landmark recording, MFSL is releasing Whites Off Earth Now!! on multichannel SACD using the acclaimed GAIN 2 remastering. The result is a profoundly mesmerizing and absolutely bone chilling listening experience.
