From the self-titled Hoi' Polloi LP - a remastered, reissue of the Richmond, Indiana band’s lone 1972 album, recorded over spring break at Earlham College by means of "bouncing" between two stereo tape decks, is a fantastic collection of country twangers, breathtaking singer-songwriter material, and bizarre tape cut-ups. With five songwriters in the band, what could have felt like another grab-bag student compilation instead feels like lost tapes of Emitt Rhodes hanging with Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young while Faust producer Uwe Nettlebeck makes a guest appearance in the control room.. Released as LP/Digital August 6th, 2013 on Family Vineyard / Folk Evaluation.
