Swamp Fat Jangles - You Only Say I Love You When You're Drunk     Folk, Alternative Country, Rock 30/09/2017
Watery scapes of guitar pedals and bowed banjo, driving drums, articulate bass and the three-part harmonies of whisky drinking ladies.
Who brings you a pair of sunnies at sunrise? Or rolls down a hill with you, howling and laughing at the drunken moon? Its not your bloody grandma but i’m sure you tell her you love her more than you tell your mates. And thats what this song is about.
