How A Surreal 1973 Film And An Abandoned College Helped Form Fly Golden Eagles New Album
Arrayed around a deserted auditorium on the grounds of a long abandoned Texas college our guest today, the Nashville band Fly Golden Eagle recorded the 26 songs that became their album Quartz. Led by songwriter Ben Trimble this Nashville based band was on a roll. When they signed to ATO Records a compact version was released called Quartz Bijou. As you can imagine with 26 songs there are some pretty amazing stories. Like songs were influenced by the film The Holy Mountain by director Alejandro Jodorowski and the album even works as a soundtrack to the film. There have been two showings. Meet Fly Golden Eagle.
