Yes, this is the fmr. lead singer of Teen Satan, surrounded by delicate beauties, as is his wont. A little younger than usual, perhaps, but I cannot wait until they’re old enough and I can explain to them that their dad played punk rock harmonica. We also once tried to record a version of “Saturday Night Security” . . . with a trombone. What can I say, it was a cool idea that may have had some, uh, technical issues.
“Saturday Night Security” had some of my favorite lyrics. It was about staying with someone because you didn’t want to be alone . . . security for Saturday nights. Some of the debris I drug back from my dad’s haus included a couple of old setlists, and I may also have a recording (or two). It may all work itself up on the web at one point. Mainly, I want Big Gray to get famous with his band, the excellently atmospheric Venice Is Sinking, so I can ride his coat-tails to ex-band-member VH1 special “star”dom.
Random: If you’re a Yaz fan, like me, you can watch the video for “Only You” (my favorite song of theirs), here.
