Hobi Jives

hobi-dub.jpg

Lt. Hobi of the Ocean Beach Surf Squadron, a viceroy, sent me a multimedia message allegedly of some proggy, dreaded journeyman
Haight Street minstrel.

Here, the jumba jives ride high with the sonorous skiffle-dub vibes and some balmy Nor Cal rays. (Hobispeak, for the unacquainted)

The skinny on last night's Mohawk residency via Bill Baird, aka Sunset}}}}}:

"jordan johns, sam sanford on bass and harmony vocals,
willis mcclung on pedal steel, joey koehl on electric
lead guitar, me on drone guitar, paul sisler banging
randomly. spread through the space were two droning
keyboards linked through daisy chained amps. my
guitar "drones" because it is a double-neck... i open
tuned one of the necks, then strummed the other... the
effect is a swirling insanity produced without any
effects of any kind... the strings on the open tuned
neck reverberated as "sympathetic strings" with the
chords I am playing onthe other side of the neck, as
well as the music other folks are playing. show
started with just me doing the drone, then keyboards
flipped on through the room, then band joined and we
played "the end of the world" and a newer song of mine
"bright blue dream" and a medley of the last two sogns
off the beatles' "revolver." all against an open "E "
drone... i thought it was pretty o.k. considering we
had no practice at all.

Bill"


Blimey. Wish I had dones seen that.

Tonight in Austin: Tree Wave/Sunset}}}}}}}

After some logistical conundrums thwarted our efforts to enlist Portland's Yacht for the the second installment of this month's
KEXP/The Onion/And*Or Gallery/GvsB/Austinist-sponsored Mohawk residency in Austin, Chris and I this past week suggested to Tree Wave's Paul Slocum that he consider letting Bill Baird join the bill.

Baird aka Sunset}}}} , for the unacquainted, is a rare artist with a wildly imaginative array of styles, approaches, and ideas, and is wont to indulge in the type of avant surrealist performance art that befits certain pairings and environments. Paul couldn't refuse after a quick turn at Bill's MySpace.

(the lad is also the bellweather of Sound Team, not your everyday Rock and Roll 2.0 bassist/producer/aesthetic director/idea guy)

Bill's shows command and require a certain patience that is infinitely rewarding when welcomed. Tonight he will, in his words, arrange a "daisy chain of amps around the room, creating alternate spatial listening experience and natural delay," in a show that will, according to Bill, be "spacey, sludgy, and strange."

Housesitting duties have me tied down in Dtown, as they do every ruddy summer, really. Anyway, sure wish I could attend. We put a lot into making sure that the show was going to be compelling, a standard set by Paul's admirably fastidious approach. Some things didn't go as planned, but nevertheless this will be mighty good and well all things considered.


Here's Chris' post, for which I supplied all necessary data, Billnfo, etc.

Many thanks to Tree Wave and Sunset}}}}} for participating and making this such a rad event.
