The 13th album from the Portland mainstay is 10 new songs from a 10-piece band featuring three horns, two ladies singing backing vocals and rockin' guitars—it’s full of Memphis soul and bluesy grooves. Recorded live at an eight-track studio in glorious mono, The Lost Cause is an analog statement. Out now on vinyl and CD at local stores and on Amazon, the big band’s next show is Friday, October 27 at the Mission Theater, where Koonce as Jon Koonce & The Gas Hogs will open for himself. Then catch the three-piece Gas Hogs in action again at the White Eagle on Friday, November 17.
