About Freak Mountain Ramblers
Portland's own Freak Mountain Ramblers bring a rollicking brand of rock 'n' roll, bluegrass, alternative country and country-blues to every show they play.
With a lineup including three members of the inimitable and notorious Holy Modal Rounders / Clamtones amalgamation of the '70s and '80s, Freak Mountain Ramblers has its roots in the underbelly of the alternative music scene that existed at that time, both in Portland and across the country. The Freaks have accumulated a loyal following in the Portland area by dependably creating beauty and bedlam at their live shows, and by producing CDs that successfully translate that energy and excitement to disc. Four lead singer/songwriters, each with a distinct character and approach to life and music, provide a dynamic show that packs the rooms with some of the most interesting music fans around.
The Freak Mountain Ramblers are veteran performers packing decades of experience. FMR members have been core musicians of the Holy Modal Rounders, Golden Delicious, the Clamtones, Richard Cranium and the Phoreheads, Prairie Dogs, Swingline Cubs, The Trail Band, and The Fly By Night Jass Band.
"... Freak Mountain Ramblers aren't your typical country western band. Not only have they chucked the slick yippie-ki-yay good looks of contemporary C&W singers for the haggard couture of mountain men, their lyrics have bizarrely warped the genre's storytelling. One song starts as a fable about two fighting neighbors and picks up speed until they have doused each other with gasoline. Strangely addictive and disturbingly fun, the song is sung in sweet tones and set to a galloping swing." - Portland Mercury
