Low Maintenance was recorded live in six days at Peter Spivak's home in the woods of Auburn, Alabama and released in 1997. Peter Spivak (Fur Lined Volcanoes), Mike Cooley (Drive-By Truckers) and Neal Goode (Easybake) first got together under the name Local White Bread in the fall of 1993 and toured the Southeast as an acoustic trio until 1997. Just prior to recording Low Maintenance, four musicians joined the trio: Chris Groves (drums), Tom Meadows (sax, flute, harmonica), Steve Henry (bass) and Nancy Scott (vocals). Local White Bread toured as a seven-piece band until 1999. This collection represents Spivak's first three years of song writing (1993-1996). The songs are like confessions and the live performances sustain a comforting sincerity. The musicianship is strong and Spivak's voice is warm and familiar. Spivak moved to North Carolina in 2000 and formed Fur Lined Volcanoes. He has released four full-length albums under that name.
