Originally signed to Sire Records where they released Half Mad Moon in 1999, the usual label machinations saw them suddenly without a deal so their second album, Where It Lands was self-released. The Damnations TX were contemporaries and friends of many of the big names of the Texas al. ountry scene such as The Gourds, Old 97s and Slobberbone.

Release group by The Damnations TX. Overview. Release group information.

While Half Mad Moon led many to peg the Damnations as an alt- country band, the new album proves that even that bastardized genre is too narrow for them. Imagine Exile on Main Street-era Rolling Stones knocking about through Workingman's Dead and accidentally inventing punk rock, and you're nearly there. Half Mad Moon is one of those rare records that manages to be traditional without getting caught up in tradition - Zac Crain, Dallas Observer. The Damnations specialize in a country-rock hybrid that features spine-tingling harmonies and no-frills execution

Dogrel
Great album from this Austin-based band, coming out at the tail end of the alt-country trend in the late 90's. Solid production work by John Croslin, of Reivers (prev. Zeitgeist) fame. Excellent blend of bluesy country vocals from the two sisters with guitar occasional banjo from Rob Bernard (ex-Prescott Curleywolf and Picket Line Coyotes).

This promo CD is an interesting look into the release process for the album. The track order was re-jiggered by the time Half Mad Moon was ready for commercial release on Sire, bringing up "Unholy Train" from track #10 on this promo to track #1, while demoting "Things I Once Adored" from the lead spot down to #10. The final release version of the album also had a slight EQ adjustment to make it brighter-sounding. "Unholy Train", however, seems to have been recut for the album once it was decided to make this the "single"; the promo version is 4 seconds shorter and does not have the bouncy Motown-styled bass intro, and it also seems to lack an extra layer of guitar overdubs that are present in the final version. The backing track may be largely the same, but the complete song is not at all the same version with just an EQ adjustment.
