This is not a tale about a gunslinger hero, nor is it meant to cut your heart. It is not the pledge at last year’s meeting of aficionados and it is not the eulogy at a death-country funeral. This is the tale of three storytellers who turned up their collars to the cold night in the dead of winter. Clutching old cases to their coats, they climbed the frozen stairwell to a dusty room in an abandoned abattoir on the edge of the city. Over three long days and nights, they coaxed sounds from the walls, ceiling and floors onto stacks of tape, slowly giving life to what would become the heart of the album. With the aid of basement stairwell echoes and broken down work vans, the album took its initial breath. The stories and sounds that were captured and which you presently hold in your hands, are the tales of AMBASSADOR. AMBASSADOR is narrated in its entirety by Mark Sasso, Casey Laforet and Stephen Pitkin. Now this is the part where you ignore that old western flickering on that old black and white in front of you and let your living room be engulfed in the swelling dust storm outside.
