You may know me mainly as a music photographer. That's what I've been doing to help keep myself sane, it helps take my mind off of my day job at an advertising agency (don't get me wrong, I like my job), and in the absence of being up statge myself it helps me stay close to live music and it allows me a creative outlay.
Well, 3 or 4 years after my last band band blew apart because the guitar player up and quit after a gig, then after my divorce and having to learn to be and trust myself again I've joined another band. I can't think of better timing for a call. My friend Neil, a drummer who I played with in the last band (which was a surf band called The Eradicators, here's a quick video ) called me up and asked to have lunch. He was playing in a band as a duo, just guitar and drums and they were considering filling out the sound and wanted to see how it came across with a bass player and I got the call. Sidebar... For those bass players out there, yes that is an ultra rare Rickenbacker 4002... And it's long gone, I sold it years ago to help buy a house after my divorce, please don't ask me if its for sale or trade, its gone!
It was awesome, its all original, catchy rock songs with great melodies and everything that makes me like original songs. After one jam, they asked if I wanted to stick around... Fuck yes!!!! They've got an amazing catalogue of songs! And we write well together which is heaven after some prior experiences in other bands.
There's a local radio station here doing a Rock Search contest so we went into the studio and recorded 4 songs, 3 of which we've posted to SoundCloud as our entry. Feel free to check us out, we're called "The Owns" at soundcloud.com/theowns
Of course being a music photographer I got the gig to do the promo shot... Figures, I'm really happy with everything in it except my head shot... Sheesh! Again, please check us out, I'd love to hear your thoughts.
