Eternal Bummer Records is proud to present its first official release, Mikey Chuck Rivers’ Last Night’s Beer, available for free download.
While working in a prohibition-themed rumcake store in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Mikey stumbled upon Willie Nelson’s 1971 concept album, Yesterday’s Wine. Inspired by the tales of spirituality and drunkenness running hand-in-hand, he carried the idea back to the infamous Woebegone Lodge on Shouldice Lake up in Northern Ontario and wrote four of the five songs on the EP in a marathon PBR-fueled session.
What results is a romantic and melancholic journey through the beery spots in life. There’s the rowdy nights (“Darling, I’m Leaving for Drinking” & “Josh, Ryan, and Me”), those tear in yer beer heartbreakers (“When There’s a Need” & “Last Night’s Beer”), and even a Willie cover from the album that inspired this anti-sober mess. Last Night’s Beer will leave you holding close to your cold ones while shouting along with your warm ones. Enjoy for free, and preferably with a PBR in palm.
