Richmond Fontaine formed in 1993 in Portland OR, the band coming together through a mutual love of The Replacements, The Blasters, X, Willie Nelson and Husker Du. Writers and fans raved about the band's powerful live blend of rock, country, punk and folk music. Equally admired were the strong story-based songs of singer Willy Vlautin, which were often compared to the stark short stories of writers such as Raymond Carver and Larry Brown - and could easily stand alone as works of prose. 'mind-blowing..absolute perfection'- UNCUT.
