Caffeine-soaked and reeking of various petroleum products, 24 Hour Cardlock burst onto the Vancouver music scene at NewMusicWest 2002.

The band has since moved its headquarters to Omaha, Nebraska in order to provide service to more time zones in North America and take advantage of the Midwest’s plentiful and convenient parking options.

While literally several people have referred to 24 Hour Cardlock as a “trucker band” the title does not tell the whole story. In truth, 24 Hour Cardlock is a “really good” trucker band.”

The Sound

That lonesome highway sound. Kris Kristofferson gives Gram Parsons a lift in his big smokin’ Mack. They drive and sing songs, watching that rubber duck dance in the dusty breeze. At dusk, they stop at a roadside bar, wash up in the john, grab a burger and drink soapy draft until the bennies and the coffee and the dust all burn off. In the background, the band starts to play.  Someone mentions Commander Cody and guilty glances are exchanged.
