Face Only a Mother Could Love[CD]
Saltlick is an original indie-rock band with a country twang from Eugene, Oregon. The band formed in 2000 by Steve Taddei following the demise of his seminal country/rock outfit, Hillbilly Holocaust. The band cut their teeth on the Eugene club scene culminating in a memorable performance on the main stage of the Eugene Celebration in 2002. In 2003 the band took a deserved hiatus. They reformed in 2004 with the current line-up in of Steve Taddei (lead vox/guitar), Chris Ross (lead guitar/pedal steel), Ryan Tocchini (keys/vox), Jerry Abelin (bass/vox), and Scott Headrick (drums/vox). Taddei's compelling songwriting and unique voice are distinctive, backed up by three part harmonies creating a sound reminiscent of Bob Dylan and The Band with echoes of the 1980's Athens, GA scene. The jangly telecaster, creative key-work, and processed pedal steel sounds are grounded by the deep pockets a of a criminally able rhythm section. Saltlick patches it's influences of garage rock and traditional country into the quiltwork of America's cultural heritage while providing their audiences with first quality entertainment.
