Demonlover at the Heavy Anchor

I started this piece a few months ago and then just let it be.  I’m now knee deep in a large scale painting that’s taking up all my time but I do plan on returning to it and finishing it by the end of the year in time for a show in January at the University City Library.  It will probably be the only new piece in the show depending on how much time I have.  It’s from an old photograph taken a few years ago when the bass player was about to leave for a time, it was a “last show” of sorts, but not really.  Thankfully the bass player came back soon after and they play out more often albeit not as often due to the drummer living in Kentucky.  

When they do play live it’s a pure joy to witness the interaction between the players which helps one understand their music, even if for a brief moment.  Their special blend of Psych Country & Western Rock can send the most harden of us into a psychedelic prairie of our own delight with their excellent balance of prepared material cycling in and out of masterful improvising. However, be ready for a sharp change, cause it’s coming.
