BLACK OUT (25TH ANNIV. ED.) (FIRE RECORDS)
"This was a limited batch release on a small german label who took my original title "black out" and translated it ..
the idea being that this is the sound that would happen during one .. songs without electricity attached".
Since then, most of that original pressing made in germany has mysteriously self destructed so it is with pleasure we have the opportunity to release the album again, including a bonus piano track for when the city goes dark.
"Giant Sand is a mood," says Howe' of Giant Sand, as if trying to o¬er a low-key explanation for his dizzying array of artistic exploration that includes a back-catalogue of some 40 albums as a singer, band-leader and producer.
