"Bringing together the dirty British blues of Duke Garwood and Wooden Wands Kentucky-laced country rock, Fire Records are releasing a special split 12 inch for Record Store Day. Each artist responsible for one side of the disc, they have brought together a loose collection of tracks and a mutual respect for each other. Duke Garwoods songs came out of a typically laid-back recording session with old reels and a nice big loop around a chair leg. Off to look for more tape, he also dug up a lost doom jazz classic original on a chewed up old reel, The Sand, The Return, and there it was. Wooden Wands contribution is a selection of recent tracks, three of which feature a short-lived band out of Murfreesboro, TN called HP Witchcraft. James Jackson Toth, known to the world as Wooden Wand, is a maverick, good-hearted troubadour whose blend of smoky Americana has been garnering plaudits for the last decade. Truly prolific, Wooden Wands recent cricially acclaimed album Briarwood is being re-released in a deluxe version featuring and extra CD of acoustic demo tracks from the album."
