a band I found when I was living outside of Redondo Beach, released their 10th album,
and their first video: You Won't Change, is now up on YouTube. I remember rocking out
to this band in my Camero, driving along the California highways, finding my way down
to the beaches of Laguna. It was a surreal time.
After all these years, the band still has it. They've kept that classic sound of a hollow
western guitar layered over a steady rock beat, as Jesper Binzer's vocals ring out. Looks
like I'll need to order Monster Philosophy from Europe, but it's great to see this band
still cranking out tunes.
Speaking about bands, I've started playing bass with a few guys from around here that are
looking at doing some orginal, straight up, rock based stuff. Driving sort of stuff like
The Cult or Led Zepplin, and we've already written three songs. Some of the musical changes
are still being work out, and the lyrics need to be finished, but the project is really
starting to come together. I also have a new electronica song that I want to release, but
I'm having problems finding a decent mp3 converter.
