A stage play called Wild and Reckless written by Blitzen Trapper ran for 28-shows in the band’s hometown of Portland, Oregon. The band took the name from the musical and put together a new album born from the stage production. Blitzen Trapper offer an advance listen to Wild and Reckless with the track/video for “Rebel”, a song ‘about a guy who for the love of a girl follows in his father's footsteps only to find it to be a scam. After several tries at the American dream he ends up selling cocaine to blue bloods in the Hollywood hills. Something of a lost Raymond Carver story with shambling near-country soundtrack’.
