Nature's Assembly Line, a collection of 15 songs by Jack Logan and The Monday Night
Recorders, is Logan's first album in over 5 years. The album was recorded in Athens, Georgia
over the course of 2003 by Logan and a revolving cast of some of the best musicians in town
including Kevin Lane (The Possiblities), Rob Veal (Dashboard Saviors), Patterson Hood
(Drive-By Truckers), William Tonks and John Neff (Barbara Cue), Aaron Phillips (Liquor Cabinet)
and more. Calling themselves the Monday Night Recorders, the group got together every Monday
night at various houses with the goal of writing and recording 3 new songs. Each night
after the songs were mixed down, the original tracks were erased. At the end of the year, 94 songs
were completed, which the band whittled down to the 15 songs that comprise Nature's Assembly Line.
The songs run the gamut from quiet acoustic to cacophonous rockers to middle-eastern flavored
Jack Logan made his mark in 1994 with the release of his 42 song masterpiece Bulk. The album
garnered amazing press in Rolling Stone, Billboard, Interview, The Washington Post, Musician
Magazine, and more, and led to appearances on NPR, Late Night With Conan O'Brien, The Today
Show and Space Ghost Coast To Coast. Logan went on to release several more records
and toured America and Europe several times to much acclaim.
