ABOUT

I've been in a number of groups of varying styles, from original folk-rock and punk to simple cover groups, but lately I've been wanting to start up another original group of the noise-pop/post-punk variety, something that walks the line between pop-worthiness and the purely avant-garde/iconoclastic.


Musical Turn-Ons:

Alternate tunings, extended noise/feedback segments of set lists, distortion and pitch bending, and surrealist imagery and lyrics, coupled with upbeat rhythms, tight song structures, and well written melodies. DIY approach, emphasis on music over image, and an existential commitment to make honest music.


Turn-Offs:

Overproduced, in-your-face, image-savvy appeal.


Oh yeah, I also build/repair my own equipment, so forget about hiring a techie when you can have both for the price of one...
