ir­tu­ally ev­ery ma­jor city in the world has it sell­ing point. Dublin is fa­mous for a par­tic­u­larly pop­u­lar dark beer. Rio has its mas­sive statue of Je­sus. Lon­don has that wacky Wind­sor fam­ily in their palace. With Nashville, the first thing that comes to any­one’s mind is coun­try mu­sic.

So it’s no sur­prise that even the city’s in­die rock bands want to get in on the ac­tion, and The Sil­ver Seas re­cently an­nounced that their fourth crack of the stu­dio whip would be a coun­try al­bum.

What is a lit­tle more star­tling is that even though their lead singer, Daniel Tashian, could in the­ory par­take of the finest South­ern Bar­be­cue right on his Nashville doorstep, he is in fact a veg­e­tar­ian. He re­vealed this when I asked him about Ten­nessee cui­sine and what his favourite hang­over food was. “It’s all about hot chicken and pulled pork here,” he said. “But for the morn­ing af­ter, I like eggs, toast and tor­tillas with hot sauce and maybe some veg­gie sausage, be­cause I’m a veg­e­tar­ian.”
