Wednesday April 22nd 10:56 p.m.

I apologize for the lack of correspondence.
Working on getting all the pieces of the puzzle together for the release of The People or The Gun.
Trying to organize interesting things to do with the songs, exclusive vinyl colors, bonus E.P., hooking up with friends to release a 7", etc.

I've been working in our studio recording the new Dandelion Snow album. The songs cover a huge spectrum of sounds. My favorite music has always been music that sonically and lyrically relays stories, emotion in the music, stories that people can really identify with. Thats the kind of songwriter DS is. Its been awesome. Check out some of his music at

Each day, sandwiched in between waking up, playing ice hockey, The People or The Gun preparation, and Dandelion Snow recording, (whew!) we have been working on a fine selection of songs by, the only band that matters, THE CLASH.
Highlights include Janie Jones and Career Opportunities.

Hope you are all awesome.
Much Respect.

P.S. I got Game 5 pens vs. flyers tickets for tomorrow. How did that song go? I am so excited? And I just can't hide it? I think so...

15 years ago today, Kurt Cobain died.
Long before I ever thought of playing bass, I found a guitar in my Uncles laundry room.
This event happened to occur the same week Nirvana Nevermind came out.

Drain You was the first song I learned how to play. I had limited musical experience at this age, from my brothers Mustang in the garage I could hear N.W.A. - Fuck Tha Police. I owned my own copy of MC Hammer - Please Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em, which was replaced by a cassette from a friend of my cousin. This cassette had Bad Religion - No Control on one side and a Cringer record on the other.
For some reason, no song on any of those albums made me HAVE TO learn how to play music the way Drain You did.
It spoke to my musical soul, and it still does.


Here's another, just cause it makes me smile when I watch it.
