this is from a few years back, when i was living in l.a. in the hollywood hills, had blonde hair halfway down my back, and we had a regular gig down on the sunset strip at the roxbury. (courtesy of george lyons) bret is currently archiving a bunch of this material (this is some rehearsal tape that’s a bit fucked up speed-wise). apparently he just bought a 200 gig HD to complete the project. right around the time of this recording we played a private showcase for gary gersh, (i think he was the president of capitol at that point), the guy who signed the counting crowes, (isnt that how they spell it???) who currently have a hit with a joni mitchell cover. coincidence?
