Against Me! – Unsubstantiated Rumors (Are Good Enough For Me To Base My Life On)
The Against Me! of the present day is very different from the band that started under the same name. Against Me! began in 1997 when seventeen-year-old Tom Gabel performed as a solo acoustic act, picking up shows whenever possible. From laundromats to bonfires, Tom began digging from the acoustic origins of protest music and re-igniting the fire of songs that don’t necessarily rely on volume for impact. In the process, he discovered a powerful voice.
“Unsubstantiated Rumors (Are Good Enough For Me To Base My Life On)” is a track from their brand new album The Original Cowboy, demos recorded in July 2003 for what was to become The Eternal Cowboy. “Recorded and mixed in only a couple of hours, The Original Cowboy was only meant to be a trial run, but, listening to it today, there’s a part of me that feels foolish for ever recording these songs a second time,” states Tom Gabel. The album is out now on Fat Wreck Chords.
