Mustang Ranch was born in the summer of 2005
when Douglas Patton and Danny Antonelli,
two Americans living in Hamburg, decided to record the 12 songs
that Danny had written in 2 weeks after SHE left him...
They gathered a few local musicians together and got started.
The LP, entitled SHE LEFT ME was finished a few months later
and the first live performance was in November of 2005
at the Live Music Club in Hamburg, Germany, for the release of the LP.
Soon after that, Caroline Lim joined the band as singer,
and a new bass player, Björn Lautenschlager, was also added.
This formation continued to play in Germany through 2006
mostly at the INDRA in Hamburg.
