Missing Lincoln is not a cover band. But founding members Greg Frazier and Kenny Gott toured with other groups before the turn of the century performing cover tunes quite well. Between sets at a club in the US Midwest someone asked them when they were going to 'really play,' which made them think perhaps the energy level wasn't what it should be. 'No,' the guy roared, 'You're DUBBIN'. Stop DUBBIN'.... I want to hear some REAL rock and roll!' After much confusion and discussion it turned out he thought they were lip synching. True story. Eventually Kenny and Greg trekked down the road to pop nirvana (Tune Avenue we think it was), writing songs sparkling with myriad influences. They entered Addison Steel's private state of the art studio with wunderdrummer Bart Kelley (the 4 jax, Mark Champman Band, Fair Warning), with cameo apperances by Ruell Chappell and other local luminaries, and produced their debut album, LID. Don't bother trying to figure out the band name or the album title--something to do with with the evolution of hats--look it's hook-bristled rock numbers not an Ezra Pound poem, just put the LID on and jump around the room!
