Jim Ward “of Sparta, Ex-At The Drive-In” fame is in a solid relationship with his new band, Sleepercar. I  like to describe listening to the album “West Texas” like “sipping Maker’s Mark out of a spotty glass in a rundown bar while watching the sun go down over the shoulder of a bartender that calls you sweetheart and asks how your grandma’s doing in between crooked teeth and Marlboro reds”. A sweet and content experience, with just the right hint of pain and loneliness.

Austinites can checkout Sleepercar this Monday, November 17th at Mohawk with Morekestra (outside, starting @ 8:00pm).

Has Jim Ward abandoned punk and gone country? No, he’s West Texas, which is a little country and a little bit rock and roll…

…………………………………………interview…………………………………………

Stacie: Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
Jim: usually wear slip ons, so when i have shoes with laces i almost never untie them-

Stacie: Would you consider yourself more of an introvert or an extrovert?
Jim: both- usually an extrovert, but i hate being in crowds so that makes me with draw a lot

Stacie: How stoked where you when your number one MySpace friend, Barack, won the election?
Jim: very stoked

Stacie: Does the song “A Broken Promise” refer to any broken promises in particular?
Jim: no-

Stacie: What’s one trait that you dislike about yourself at the moment?
Jim: i am passive/aggressive- and it sometimes makes personal relationships difficult, i try to control it

Stacie: Your musical endeavors progressed from hardcore, to a little less hardcore, to alt-country. Have you found a genre that fits well with Sleepercar?
Jim: i think sleepercar is pretty flexible in the genre department- we have been on quite a few different tours, it makes me happy…
