Cypher Records: original indie music

Points West - a blast from the past

Points West was formed in the early 80's by Tres Jones and Cram. This band played extensively around Salt Lake and surrounding regions throughout the 80's and early 90's. The long lost EP 'Tumble Down' has never been available until now. A backup copy of the erased master tapes was found and then re-mastered. Points West was heavily influenced by the region where they were formed. Many songs were written around the campfire or in small rustic mountain top cabins. The music evokes the distinct western flavors of dusty breezes, red rock, and leather. Rumors of new material have been circulating, check back to see if the rumors are true.
