Best On-Again, Off-Again Band (2008)

Drag the River

Does Drag the River still exist — and if so, in what form? That's a difficult question to answer. The band allegedly broke up in 2007, only to reunite in order to promote You Can't Live This Way, a first-rate CD issued by the Suburban Home imprint. Afterward, the players drifted back into the shadows, but a bio included on the outfit's still-active MySpace page concludes with the phrase "It never ends." That's good news, if true. If not, it's a real Drag.
