Bob Watson, Old School Deep Ellum Guy, Has New Band

I admittedly don't know very much about Shallow Reign, a late 80's Deep Ellum group that was apparently a major part of the scene at one time, but Bob Watson, the group's former lead singer, has started a new project called Plumbrella, which recalls groups like Galaxie 500 with lazy reverb heavy vocals and a very distinct country influence a la Flying Burrito Brothers and the slower country ballads of the Rolling Stones. Check the wonderful "Could Would End" for an excellent example of the group's work-- it's one of the most surprisingly pleasant local songs I've heard this year.

Holy shit. Where the fuck has this guy been for the last ten years? I remember seeing his old band open up for Uncle Tupelo.

ran into bob a couple of months ago and he didn\'t say anything doing this. what a surprise.

i think he lives out on a farm somewhere near paris or marfa now...

so this is the new sig sound for downtowners... bosque brown, plumbrella, king bucks, deadman, junky southern, baptist generals, doug burr, etc.

the rural plurality, blunts around the campfire

Oh yes, I remember seeing Shallow Reign several times at Theater Gallery. They were almost like the house band there, as was End over End.

been looking for a copy of the first shallow reign album - the one that was only released on vinyl back in 86.

very similar to ok computer-era radiohead. ahead of its time for sure.

He\'s also recording some other new stuff with Mike Daane, the former bass player of Ugly Mustard and Last Rites.
