A product of the fertile Louisville, Kentucky music scene which also launched Palace, Slint, Rodan and all of their many side projects and offshoots, the neo-honky tonk unit Satchel's Pawn Shop formed in 1995. Named in honor of baseball great Satchel Paige, the group consisted of singer/guitarist Dave Porter, guitarist Dave Nofsinger, steel guitarist Ian Thomas, bassist Willie McLean and drummer Glen Howerton; Left Canine Magic, Satchel's Pawn Shop's debut record, was issued on their own Out to Pasture label in 1997. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
