Kevn Kinney & Anton Fier/Golden Palominos release new CD

By on December 28, 2011

Born from numerous jam sessions in a smoke-filled, coffee-stained New York
basement, “a good country mile,” is the latest collaboration between
longtime friends and musical cronies KEVN KINNEY (Drivin N Cryin) and
ANTON FIER (The Golden Palominos). a good country mile features new Kinney
originals, covers of a couple much beloved tunes and a handful of fresh
takes on vintage KINNEY and Drivin N Cryin material. The basic tracks were
recorded at Martin Bisi’s BC Studio in Brooklyn, overdubs and mixing was
done at One East Recording with Fier producing. “a good country mile” is
being released by Yep Roc in the first quarter of 2012.

“Kevn and I wanted to make a record that had the feel, the looseness, the
innocence and the spontaneity of some of the late 60’s/early 70s records
that we were both fascinated by: “The James Gang Rides Again,” Terry
Reid’s “River,” The Faces’ “The First Step,” Marc Benno’s
“Minnows”…records made before the corporate rock rules had been

a good country mile is KINNEY’S first solo album since 2004, when he
released Sun Tangled Angel Revival, and the first release to use the
Golden Palominos name since 1996’s  Dead Inside. It’s a guitar-heavy
album, loaded with dirty riffs and powerful rhythms that would be at home
on a Free or Faces album, a definite departure from KINNEY’S previous folk
flavored solo work. Featured musicians include Anton Fier, Chris
Masterson, Jim Campilongo, Andy Hess, Tony Scherr, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Jon
Cowherd, Eleanor Masterson, Leslie Mendelson and Lianne Smith.

This is not the first time KINNEY and FIER have worked together. Their
first collaboration was on Drivn N Cryin’s classic album 1987  Whisper
Tames The Lion which FIER produced and played drums on. Some 20 years
later, they reestablished their musical connection when FIER produced
Drivin N Cryin’s 2009 album Whatever Happened To The) Great American
Bubble Factory.
