Out for dinner one night in Knoxville, visiting and researching locations of Cormac McCarthy novesl...a woman was in the restaurant and she had a t-shirt with a lovely scrolled text saying "Suttree". Suttree is one of the novels set in Knoxville so I approached her and asked her about the t-shirt. Her brother is a big fan of McCarthy's and named his band, Suttree. She owns and operates a printing and publishing company that we had visited that very morning. Downtown Knoxville feels very cosy, yes? She makes beautiful letter press posters and many other wonderful retro and handmde items. More at Yee Haw Industries.
The band Suttree has a MySpace and you can listen to more songs here and buy their albums.. They are based in Asheville, North Carolina. I've been listening to them for about a month and really love their music and sensibility.
