REQ: Centro-Matic – Non Directional Jetpack Race

Okay, this is Centro’s first right here. From a cassette released in 1995, it has been long out of print…..but luckily for us has been floating around the internet for a while. Centro-Matic is led by the prolific Will Johnson (who has a thriving solo career) and the entire band is in the side band South San Gabriel (for the quieter stuff). Actually Centro-Matic itself could be considered by some a side project for Will Johnson but I guess that depends on who you ask. Now I don’t know much about Centro, just that they are one of Patterson Hood’s favorite bands and that they lean more towards the “alt” side of alt country. But these two out-of-print early albums (the other one will be next) are pretty decent, and hint at a band on their way to something good.
