TOTAL FEST "PURE COUNTRY GOLD" STYLE Growing up, the phrase “pure country gold” meant a combination of Wyoming, a 1977 Ford custom pickup, my Dad, an AM radio frequency and a trip to the dump on a Sunday afternoon. However, Portland’s very own Pure Country Gold may have just changed my view on these three words. The duo play blues charged garage rock with a pinch of - wait for it - country. These boys take just as much from The Oblivians as they do from The Flat Duo Jets, but please don’t think of The White Stripes here – Pure Country Gold are way too reckless and loud for the comparison. Trust me you do NOT want to miss their set.
