A group that, as one YouTube commenter puts it, "makes you want to spend the entire day in a bar," and, incidentally, one of Jailbait's favorite bands. From their second album 1993s Cure for Pain.
As Our Host mentions, Sandman's primary instrument was a two-string bass guitar with both strings usually tuned to the same note and played with a slide. The minimalist group also included Dana Colley on a variety of saxes, and either Billy Conway or Jerome Deupree on various percussion instruments. Asked to describe their sound, the band coined the term "low rock."
If you like Thursday, you'll like Morphine and you should go search out their tragically small discography. I also especially recommend Sandman's great collaboration with the Either/Orchestra on their album The Half-Life of Desire, where he does such a sweltering version of the Bing Crosby chestnut, Temptation, that you'll be tempted to ship out on a tramp steamer for the South Seas.
