Just a few months back, singer/guitarist Harrison Ray re-assembled his band from the feedbacky noise/pop April Invention thing into the twangy/dangy alt-country Wagoneers thang. The name has changed yet again: “We recently had to change our name or risk being sued,” read a recent posting. “We had no idea there was already a band by that name. However, we are the same buncha’ fellas makin’ good time music!”
