Tor Egil Kreken, banjo-player of the Holstein United Bluegrass Boys (Norway), reports that on 19 January 2009 the band will release their first CD, Cattle tracks, in Norway on Grand Slam Happy Time Records. The album, consisting entirely of original material, was recorded in an old church just outside Oslo and mixed in the US with help from the legendary Gary Paczosa. Two tracks can be heard on the band's MySpace site.
THUBB will be touring Norway around the release date (details to be announced on MySpace), but are also very interested in playing abroad. Promoters can contact them by e-mail.
