In a world where showmanship is often overlooked, The Meligrove Band are a trustworthy beacon of hope. Their ruffian rock 'n' roll hooks will destroy your skull, but their unforgettable pop melodies will caress your back and play with your hair. When that's all done, they'll drop a steaming plate of country licks in your lap, and you'll want to sue them for misconduct. But they're nice guys, and they'll pay your dry cleaning bills. Long story short, their tunes will stick in your head for days, and you won't mind.

The Meligrove Band were added to the Ductape Records roster on the strength of their demo tape and earth-shaking live show back in 1998, and things have only gotten better since. They recorded their debut full length, Stars & Guitars (DCD-005-2), for Ductape Records in 2000, and will be following it up with their second full length in 2002.
