Each individual had compositions for such a project dating back to 1993.
While it's impossible to ignore the influence of John Fahey on their music, Pullman draw upon the influence of a variety of performers, fingerstyle and otherwise: Nick Drake, Leo Kottke, Ry Cooder, Bhrij Khabra, VM Bhatt, Bola Sete, King S.
Ade, Wes Montgomery, Jim Hall, Steve Tibbetts, Robbie Basho, Peter Laing, Duane Allman, Dickey Betts, Doc Watson, Richard Thompson, and even Jimmy Page.
The length of this list only speaks to the passion of Pullman for acoustic music.
Pullman formed several years ago after some conversations by Ken Brown and Curtis Harvey during collaborations on other recordings, principally during the sessions for Loftus’ self-titled cd (Perishable) and Rex’s C (Southern).
After some consideration and an opening in their schedules the two recruited other like-minded and longtime collaborators Chris Brokaw and Douglas Mc Combs.
They set about recording their debut, Turnstyles and Junkpiles, in Brown and Mc Comb’s Chicago loft in the autumn of 1997.
The songs were a combination of new compositions the four wrote together as well as a number of older pieces individually brought to the table for such an environment.
The album consisted of fourteen pieces, recorded entirely with acoustic stringed instruments, primarily guitars, live to stereo 2-track.
