Bad Assets?

This Band has History

Bad Assets are a whiskey-soaked country rock band from Portland, Oregon. Some years back Motor Jeffries, the bands primary song-maker-upper, had a vision to write a collection of songs about the drive through Oregon on Interstate 84. After a few years, some different bands, empty whiskey bottles and a helluvalot of beer, Bad Assets are proud to say we did it. The road trip takes you all the way from Stumptown across the state line towards the billowing smoke stacks of potato processing plants. Stopping by a bottom shelf liquor distillery, a washed out waterfall, rodeo country and even an abandoned cement factory along the way. Buckle up and turn it up loud, son.
