Prior to starting the band, Ron Franklin toured the U.S. and Europe with just a telecaster, a harmonica rack and a mess of feedback. He has since formed Gasoline Silver, who's sound has been described as "subterranean wordplay scored with electro-psych panoramas and biker-movie guitars." Check out a video of them performing "Indianapolis" live below.
