More info. on the artists:
CAR COMMERCIALS – www.myspace.com/leafleafrecords
Messy, highly personal pop/noise ‘songs’ from Daniel DiMaggio (Home Blitz) and David Sutton. “Tape recorders get shut on and off, sped up…slowed down and then they bust into some rockin’ and then some close-talkin’ microphone action. You like the Prats? Early Shadow Ring? Do you get joy outta knowing there’s kids half you age that are as f-ed up as you?” – Tony Rettman
QUINN WALKER – www.myspace.com/quinnwalker
Experimental neuborn pop dwelling in the canyon between the child-endangering occult and the classic top 40 from the 50’s.
KING DARVES – www.myspace.com/darves
Highland Park, NJ native, King Darves, whose voice bellows a deep, rich and sweet smoke reminiscent of the pipe tabacco that the old guy used to puff behind the dugout, is a kid blessed with a universal tongue and hand.
GERALD BUSBY – youtube.com/watch?v=BMksdsHhPf0
Gerald Busby is best known as the composer of Robert Altman’s ‘3 Women’ (1977), though he has written music for film and dance, and theatrical chamber music for more than 30 years. A resident of the ChelseaHotel, Busby, a precocious pianist and notoriously fabulous cook, writes music as quirky and bohemian as his surroundings. Busby is also an acclaimed actor and monologist, and currently hosts the Collaborations program on TribecaRadio.net.
DEER TICK – www.myspace.com/deertick
John McCauley, aka Deer Tick, writes classic American music that takes cues from guys like Richie Valens and Neil Young.
GIANT SKYFLOWER BAND – www.myspace.com/giantskyflowerband
During a sabbatical from regular duties in The Skygreen Leopards, Glenn Donaldson and Shayde Sartin dreamt of Giant Skyflower Band, an exotic, flowery and crumbling new project with nods to fruity new age, psych, prog, folk, and pop songwriting. Following the release of their debut, Blood of the Sunworm (Soft Abuse, 2007), the two regrouped, invited Jason Quever (The Papercuts) to the fold, absorbed a drum machine, and shifted into DIY pop territory that touches upon Brighter and Suicide with equal prejudice.
ED ASKEW – www.myspace.com/84367059
A rare performance by New York City’s Ed Askew, in support of the CD issue of his 1971 unreleased masterpiece, Little Eyes. Joshua Burkett will accompany him on Ed’s beloved Martin tiple.
