Wreck Your Guitar Solo

Is it still a leak if you're leaking yourself?

This is the for real guitar solo from "I Will Wreck Your Life". Actually, it's two serendipitously coinciding guitar solos from different recording sessions at different places several months apart. The first was recorded with Ross in Dyker Heights when we did the drums and then the second at Spaceman last week. Neither was quite right but then I had an epiphany: "Wait a minute, play both of those solos together" and ta-dah! I'm talking about harmonies.

To me it sounds like early Weezer and I'm very very proud of it.

Last Friday's set at the Party Expo could be described as Hobbesian; short, loud and silly.

Charles and I were not afraid to show some skin as the two-man Due Diligence.

But don't take my word for it! Apologies for use of the GarageBand preset called "Xtreme Compression"

Donor Blues

Here is a video of last month's Zebulon show with Morgan Hank on backup vocals. The song is a songwriting collaboration with Shakey Graves and the whole thing was shot by our buddy Eric Hinojosa.
