No Shadow (2015)
by Ryan Adams
Pax Americana Record Company - PAX-AM 043 - 13/01/2015

"Johnny came rumbling into PaxAm one night with this riff and an idea of what it was about- a few hour later and one take on a 2 inch 24 track tape machine later we had No Shadow… typed up on my manual typewriter and born and delivered from a simple riff we found on his i phone. Johnny is a real songwriter and one of the deepest guitar players out there. Thats us singing and playing and playing all the parts ourselves with just our pal Marshal Vore on drums.

The B side is from the first night we met where all we did was play and didn’t say a word. This was the third thing we ever played together and there was no discussion. True rock and roll moments, as they should be, unfussy and delivered with all the heart and soul we had that night.

Track three is a little song I wrote about being stoned in the 7-11 parking lot across from Pax which is groundhog day for me and most that fly with us."

We love you PaxAmer’s. Have a great XMAS

Ryan Adams released his No Shadow EP yesterday with artwork that was partially inspired by the 7-Eleven logo. Naturally, in the age where everything can and will be turned into a branding opportunity, when Adams tagged the convenience store chain in a joke tweet about putting Skittles onto donuts, they responded with some customized artwork and sent him a DIY Skittles-donut-making kit in the mail. Adams seems to be a big fan of the chain, calling them his “spirit animal.” It’s a pretty fun exchange. See the photos below the shots of the single in the right column.
