Interview: Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band (David Lindquist, 6/30/10, Metromix)

“The Wages” features new versions of fan favorites “The Train Song” (previously featured on debut recording “The Pork n’ Beans Collection”) and “Two Bottles of Wine” (until now available on a limited-edition run of 1,100 vinyl singles).

Vocalist-guitarist Josh Peyton, washboard player Breezy Peyton and drummer Aaron Persinger made the “Clap Your Hands” video in a barn with dozens of seemingly mismatched dancers. [...]

Were you surprised by anything that transpired during the video shoot for “Clap Your Hands”?

That it even happened. The video was Breezy’s idea: She said, “We should get a bunch of different dancers together. We’ll get breakdancers and cloggers,” and on and on. I said, “How are we going to get people like that to come out for nothing? We have no money to pay anybody.” She said we’d be able to pull it together from our friends and fans. I’m ashamed for being such a skeptic. Making that video that day in that barn — with all these people who came from all over Indiana — I was humbled in a way that’s hard to describe. I told someone, “If I found out there was no film in those cameras or if they got dropped in a river and we lost everything, that would still be one of the best days of my life.”
