1990 to 2000
Austin, Texas, United States
Bad Livers was a trio from Austin, Texas, formed in 1990. The original lineup included Danny Barnes (vocals and banjo), Mark Rubin (bass, tuba) and Ralph White (accordion, fiddle). The band played an eclectic mix of old time, bluegrass, punk and whatever else they could think of, making them difficult to categorize. Their first release was a gospel cassette, "Dust on the Bible", (later reissued on CD) followed by the CDs "Delusions of Banjer" and "Horses in the Mines".
