Farewell, Appalachia! was a short-lived group consisting of Oliver Fisher (The Light Sleepers, Cold Pumas, Tense Men, The Worms), Patrick Fisher (The Light Sleepers, Cold Pumas), Daniel Reeves (An Emergency, Cold Pumas, Soft Walls) & Lesley Reeves. They practiced in Lesley and Dan's kitchen in Exeter, around 2006 and performed a handful of shows on a short tour with their friend Stuart Lee, AKA Jacob's Stories.
The band aimed to create 'anti-rock' music, with an implied narrative and cinematic atmosphere, but perhaps instead produced something endearingly ramshackle and beautiful in it's own amateurish way.
Farewell, Appalachia! wrote quite a lot of songs, recorded one 4-track EP, went on that single tour and never played again.
