Drug Rug
This fall, Tommy Allen and Sarah Cronin debut their love for one another in the form of their outstanding S/T record, Drug Rug, on Black & Greene Records. The dynamic love duo, named Drug Rug, hail from Boston and have written and recorded a heartbreaking debut.

Thomas Allen and Sarah Cronin met in 2006 while working at the Middle East Club in Cambridge, MA. After trading secret demos of their own songs, Tommy persuaded Sarah to combine forces. They spent their first date drinking whiskey in bed and playing each other songs on an old guitar. They've been inseparable ever since. Several months later, they christened themselves "Drug Rug," a name which has made strangers laugh and parents cry. Drug Rug began as an acoustic duo in the vein of the Everly Brothers and The Carter Family. Over the course of three or four shows Drug Rug evolved into a rock band with a revolving cast of friends and family. Their early rock and roll sound can be attributed to such influences as The Velvet Underground, The Byrds, and most importantly, the Paul and Linda McCartney record, RAM. The songs are also inspired by the storytelling style of early folk musicians, comic books, campgrounds, funny hats, and the illustrations of Garth Williams. In the month of June, 2007 after consulting a psychic and a lawyer they signed to Black & Greene Records and are now slated to release their first record in the fall. Sarah likes to be covered in dirt and Tommy wears the same shirt for four days. They used to be drug free, but now they aren't so sure. They believe in the imminent end of the world and will destroy each other with love before the apocalypse.

YESSS! So good to see these guys on here. Being a Boston guy, Drug Rug is nothing new to me. Seen them live plenty o' times. If you're down with the apollo sunshine/dr. dog type sound, you'll definately love drug rug. If you're diggin' the boston sound, go a bit further and chek out eli "paperboy" reed or the dead trees. Sports aint the only thing we got!
