Since we got back into the New York Groove, we’ve been fortunate enough to play some pretty bangin’ shows with great acts like The Zombies, The Sonics, Drive Like Jehu, Alkaline Trio, etc., & it’s been so cool meeting all the Swami, Mrs Magician, & Thrill Me fans that have been coming out to our shows. It’s been encouraging having so many people contact us about shows in town, shows all over the world, records, horror films, videos, asking us to play your proms. Even though we take our sweet ass time with everything, you guys are some patient and supportive people, & we very much appreciate it. We have one upcoming show on the books right now that we’re excited about, check the Tour Dates section.
So, first and foremost we’re excited to say that we’ve recorded our second LP for Swami Records entitled Bermuda, a follow up to our 2012 Strange Heaven record. I’m very excited about this new album and how hard the band has worked on it, as well as our Producer/Head Cheeze/Compadre Swami John Reis. Here is a short funny video of us Slanging it out in the studio, for those of you who have already watched and e-mailed us, we did for one second entertain the thought of naming the record “Burrito Fuckers”. :)
So, I’m not one for plugging businesses, because it feels so grotesque unless it’s for people you genuinely believe in and trust. But we’ve been using Satellite Amplifiers for years, we used them on our first record, and we used them on our upcoming album, so there is no shame in my game. Our very own Guitarist Thomas C. Garcia makes these amplifiers with a talented group of Tone Gurus, other bands that use Satellite are, Pearl Jam, X, Tom Petty, Social Distortion, just to name a few. Please support these guys, hard working San Diego Rock & Rollers.
In addition to making music, I’ve been creating video’s for bands including Spirit Club (Wavves/ Jeans Wilder), which premiered on Pitchfork, Stereogum, & MTVNews. Check out my other music videos for Griever, Buddy Banter, and My very own music video for my new solo 7″ Single out on Thrill Me Records. Purchase the Vinyl here, watch the video here.
