Great Austin band - originally called "Damnations", most recently "Damnations Tx" (legal reasons). If you loved the Damnations album "Where it Lands", you owe it to yourself to give this one a spin. Great harmonies, twangy, rockin' - one of my favorite bands. Just wish there had been more albums!!! Check it out.

"Lost month I saw The Damnations play at SXSW'99 in Austin. Never heard of the band before. I fell for the music after the first minute I heard them play. After the concert I rushed to a local musicstore to buy Half Mad Moon. I can't tell how often I ever since have played this great record. The two sisters have wonderfull voices and they sound even as good as the female singers of Freakwater. The energy and passion of Rob Bernard makes it all complete. Listen to 'No sign of water" and "kansas" and you know what I mean. For sure the cd will be one of my very favourites of this year, not to mention this century. He who ever tells you that The Gourds is the best band of Austin, don't believe him: The Damnations is. Buy this fantastic cd!!Philip Brouwer"

"The Damnations are among the cream of the Austin crop (no small feat). I was convinced that the first track off this album, "Unholy Train", would be a big hit in 1999. That was not to be, but it doesn't diminish the fine work shown here. The sister's singing and Bernard's banjo/guitar work are excellent as are the songwriting and production. It may take more than just the one album, but this group is destined for big things."
