Although now known as Langhorne Slim and The Law, this Pennsylvania-hailin’ alt-country-ish band used to be known as Langhorne Slim and the War Eagles. Connected to Auburn somehow?
Not according to the answer to a “side-question” in this interview with some filmmaker named Harris Mendheim who knows the band or something.
Are the War Eagles the band behind Langhorne Slim? Are they related to Auburn?
HM: The War Eagles are not related to Auburn.
AS: The War Eagles are Paul Defiglia (bass and backing vocals) and Malachi DeLorenzo (drums and backing vocals) Langhorne’s backing band. They are not from Auburn, Alabama.
But what does it matter? In the words of the Apostle Paul in his letter to the church at Philippi, the important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Auburn is preached. And because of this we rejoice. Yes, and we will continue to rejoice.
UPDATE: And we have even more reason to rejoice, thanks to a yes-it-is-an-Auburn-thing confirming comment left on our Facebook page by Chris Sager:
“Being a Brooklyn resident for 9 years now, I’ve seen him perform a few times and have even had drinks with him and his friend one night (the day after their performance on the Late Show with David Letterman). Dave even asks at the end of the song, pointing to the War Eagles drum, “Is this Auburn?”. I’m not sure if the drummer was just answering nervously or what, but you can hear him say, “Yes it is”. Good enough for me– War Eagle!”
Harry Mendheim apparently has no idea what he’s talking about.
