Good For What Ails Ya
February 30, 2013 - We now carry our own Turpentine Ray elixir: the band agreed to lends it's name to this product after it substantially reduced the size of our drummers 'touch of gout.' Works wonders on hangnails, forgetfulness, adult colic, will set a broken heart on the mend, etc.

New Music Video, Space Station Mir, Released!
June 26, 2012 - The Turpentine Ray have released the first music video from their CD 'The First TV Dinner.' The tune in question, 'Space Station Mir,' is a tale in which the band recounts, in song form, long days and nights spent in God's Own Drunk Tank. The video is directed by Emile Rafael and produced by Emile along with Kieran D'Arcy. http://vimeo.com/44649501
Back in April, Megan at Fuzzy Logic was kind enough to plug our new CD release 'The First TV Dinner.' Go on and take gander at what she had to say. Then continue on through the rest of this fine, fine music blog: http://www.logicfuzzy.com/2012/04/meet-turpentine-ray.html
Recent Podcast Appearances.
The Turpentine Ray is on the awesome new podcast "Keys To The Highway" episode #4, great folk music from all over, stories from they heyday of WWF wresting, dice playing Chesapeake hoop-spiders, songs from Tampa Red, Lightnin' Hopkins and some great contemporary musicians. Enjoy!
Mike Edwards puts together a great weekly podcast called 'In My Room', and it just so happens that this week (2.23.2012) the Turpentine Ray track 'In a Station Wagon' appears on it!
The Turpentine Ray and their bio.
Classified as "Turbine-Room Folk Muisc", The Turpentine Ray mix a number of genres, namely folk, country and a dash of sea shanty. Their primary instrumentation revolves around guitar, banjo, cello, resonator and drums.
With members hailing from different corners of the world - San Francisco, Chicago, Birmingham and Prague - The Turpentine Ray call Prague home, and that is where they originally formed, meeting and playing together (prior to the creation of their band) in various projects within the tightly knit Prague music scene.
Stay tuned for the official Turpentine Ray book!
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
Long days and nights in the sausage factory. The band meets. The members and their common love of the Speedo. The tragic death of the kazoo player. The cellist cries out for a sex change, in a sideways fashion. A fork in the road, followed by a spoon and a plate. The first, middle and last TV dinner. The band dyes their hair a shade of ginger.
''Born in the holler they were, says I. Four sons, three mothers, a couple of cousins and one crap-kicking country-fried folk band.'' [THE END]
