  1. Hi looking at your taste in music this band is right up your alley .Bow Thayer & Perfect Trainwreck are the real deal. Levon Helm even played drums on Bow’s album a few years back and had them open 8 Midnight Rambles. Bow’s retrospective cd has been on and off Roots Rock Report and other charts for a few months . Their brand new album has a buzz from RELIX releasing an early exclusive track – 8k – Enjoy Mike
