OUTLAW CON BANDANA "faeries & rewards" - LP - $15ppd
Plenty of myth and lore already surround the Omaha four-piece
Outlaw Con Bandana. This time around, the Outlaw is
getting in on the act, adding his own bit of fabulism to the
narrative. “Faeries and Rewards,” an adventure story that
exalts in eccentric characters and faces down the
consequences of a life on the fringes, picks up with our
main character as he is railroaded and harried by the powers
that be. The resulting album is at turns exuberant, world-
weary, wise and brash; and is easily one of the strongest
statements in Outlaw’s catalog. limited to 300 copies with
multi-colored silkscreened sleeves, and insert.
