Now, This Is Clean Coal

In February, The Panderers released their debut EP entitled “Hotshot’s Boy” on Snack Bar, a label created by Mike Doughty.

According to the band’s MySpace, the EP was produced by Dave Wilder and Pete McNeal, who came together on the deep belief in a trove of songs authored by singer/songwriter Scott Wynn. Scott’s roots stem from deep east Kentucky coal country where his father and uncles worked coal as did their father before them. Scott is the first of his family not to work coal and to attend college. Scott borrows much from the baseness and humility of coal country, but you have to remember that coal can also be fire. So, the music pretty much reflects that….very base, bare, rootsy…and/or pure fire.
