Traveling, Inky Skulls, Monkee Head, Jacob the Terrible, and Switched Off Bach
Traveling started in September of 2011 by a group of three friends in Bloomington, IN. Ginger Alford, Jake Alexander, and Alan Crenshaw. Ginger has toured the country many times playing in One Reason and Good Luck, and touring with Paul Baribeau playing Bruce Springsteen covers. She’d been playing bass in Good Luck for several years and wanted to play guitar again in a band. This show part of their 3 week tour. No Idea Records released their 7″ in January.
Inky Skulls is Chris Clavin (me) and Emily Rose. We started in Bloomington, Indiana in August of 2011. We only had three weeks to get off the ground. We wrote 6 songs and recorded a demo, then did a week-long mini-tour. At first we thought we should both play ukuleles but it was too tinny and thin so now I play bass and Emily plays the uke. This is Emily’s first band. I’ve been in some bands… (Ghost Mice, The Sissies, The Devil is Electric, Operation: Cliff Clavin etc)
JACOB THE TERRIBLE IS INTERNATIONAL RECORDING SENSATION JACOB BERENDES COMBINED WITH NATIONAL PERFORMING SENSATIONS THE TERRIBLES.
“the world can be so fucked / but there’s only so much shit / you can shit / on a face”
Is his synthesizer Baroquen? No-nonsese/pro-nonsense artist, Joe DeGeorge (of Harry and the Potters), recently began a series of projects in which he performs the classical music of Johann Sebastian Bach with an unusual distortion. One such project is Switched Off Bach, which consists of a solo keyboard performance utilizing a synthesizer that is turned off, with a mic on the keyboard. The performance is completely rhythmically Baroque. The volume is up all the way. The synthesizer is just turned off.
