Sam Quinn

In an effort to keep the the good times rolling in a gleefully depressing way, Sam Quinn brings you his latest incarnation of Honest American Music, The Japan Ten.

Sam Quinn and Japan Ten offer toe-tapping and cheek-salting songs of liberation and release to quell the longings of the soul, quiet the whispers of your fears, and quench the spirit that is this great country. The band plays some of the high points from the everybodyfields records, but also a lot of new stuff and, well, just some things that make them feel good. Cause if it feels good you should do it. Right?

Music: let it be fun again, and with a Q.
