One of my favorite bands in the 1990s was called Emotional Smoke, an infamous East Tennessee punk-classic-garage rock band. They were a strange mix of the Ramones and Pink Floyd. This web page is dedicated to the music and history of that troubled band. This web page is completely unauthorized and not sanctioned by the band or its members (Images above L to R: Emo Skull from inner album sleeve, Bone Shepherd promotional poster, first LP release).

Here is a great article from Music Mover Magazine about the band.

THE MUSIC - Here is a collection of MP3 clips of some of the surviving recordings made by the band. Most of these were ripped from old cassette tapes, LPs, and a CD of the bands music. Sound quality varies from OK, to very poor, but that is the way the band would have liked it. Thanks to all of the fans who contributed MP3s for this page. If you have any recordings or photos of this band you would like to contribute, contact me at the email adress above. So far I have not located a single photo of any member of this band.

INTENSE MUSIC VIDEO - The one and only video ever released by the band. Poorly directed by indie video director John Slewart, it is rumored that there is an actual murder caught on film in this video. Slewart was primarily known as a porn music video director. He owed the band money and directed the video for free to pay off his debts. He was murdered in 1991 under mysterious circumstances involving copyright violations and Elvis impersonation. His death is still under investigation.
