Hasil Adkins begat The Legendary Stardust Cowboy, who begat Paul McCartney, who begat Emmit Rhodes, who in turn begat Todd Rundgren, who eventually begat The Bevis Frond, who had nothing to do with Prince or Bob Log.

What does this have to do with the album before you? Well, not a lot--except that all those mentioned were or are essentially one-man bands.

Add to that list Dave Swanson who, under the name Rainy Day Saints, has issued his first album.

Dave is no stranger to rock n’ roll, having done time in many bands over the years; some you may have heard of (Guided By Voices, Cobra Verde, Death of Samantha, The Reactions) and some you may not have (New Salem Witch Hunters, Dementia 13, HNG NXN, Speaker/Cranker). In these bands, he has been a drummer or a guitarist or a bassist, but on Saturday's Haze, he is all those things as well as vocalist and the occasional keyboard.

Why a one-man band and not the real thing? Dave replies, "I don't understand the question, but a wise man once said keep a good head and always carry a light bulb." Puzzled, I move on.

It is a record full of melodic minuets surrounded by crashing guitars, bass and drums. Songs (all written by Dave Swanson) that stick to your mind then to your heart but not on your hands.

Get Hip Records has now seen fit give Rainy Day Saints a home. Enjoy.
