Hello visitor!



Welcome to the new look Mescaliners Website vol 2.0!

The difference compared to the old pages is that there's no longer any information about who plays what instrument on every track. We decided it was pointless - we're playing as a band so who cares who plays what? In fact even we can't remember for sure! If it's piano then it's most likely Tuomas who plays it. If it's steel string guitar with strange sounding chords - or washboard, jew's harp or blues harp it's Davy. If it's banjo or bozouki it's probably Jore. But if it's flat bass it can be Jore or Tuomas. Shaker or mandolin? Davy or Jore. Drums? Anyone! Hopeless! Meaningless!

The structure is also different now. The previous site was trackbased. All the info was in one box. This new system is different - we have clear sections. You may have to move a little more to get all the stuff but this is more download friendly. Let us know what you think of it.

In these pages you'll find not only the history of the Mescaline Smugglers but also some mp3s - which are totally free for you. So, start downloading.

Where to start? That's a good question. 259 tracks (+ 144 more on Kvester Melkk Quintet site, read more on 'Story') to choose! Try 5 tracks:
1) Lost in Music - 03 - Rag That Joint,
2) Raking The Mules - 19 - Reflections,
3) Take 'em Off - 09 - Cowboy,
4) Cinnamon Salami cd 2 - 08 - When I was a Child,
5) Too Black Bad cd 2 - 03 - World's Gone Mad
and if nothing hits you.......forget us!

If you want to praise, criticize, sue or offer us a recording deal (we are free at the moment!) or whatever, take contact with davymcgowan@btinternet.com or jorma.heikkila@gmail.com or tuomas.laitila@hameenlinna.fi

We have also decided to go public, play gigs at people's partys or big festivals, anything goes. If you have an extra 14.000 euros, take contact and we can make a deal. (This offer can end anytime, so be quick.)
