Slackeye Slim is a Americana Garage band from rural Southwest Wisconsin. The band often relies heavily on lyrical imagery to create their cinematic sound. The four-piece band features a revolving lineup and is headed by Joe Frankland; former music critic, carnie, and radio announcer. Slackeye Slim was formed in Wooster, Ohio in 2006. Frankland initially treated it as a solo project, playing many shows in Akron, Cleveland, Detroit, and Pittsburgh. After developing a devoted local following, Frankland decided to independently release Slackeye Slim’s debut album, Texas Whore Pleaser.
