God, is this band filthy with talented folks. Sometimes I get the feeling that there’s a secret collective going on, with members that rotate between Jail Weddings and Dante vs. Zombies and Raw Geronimo and Swahili Blonde and Johnny O’Donnell and White Murder, and that when “Jail Weddings” plays, it just means it’s Gabe Hart’s turn to conduct the collective.

This is a super-group made up of members from some already awesome bands: Jail Weddings, Death Hymn Number 9, the Red Onions, the Commotions, even This Moment in Black History!?!

A-side “Some Place” is risen-from-the-crypt Savage Kick early ’60s R&B. It’s like nourishment and medicine at once: barely-there back-ups, honk-honk sax, a fall-down-the-back-stairs guitar solo and a single-finger piano line that pokes a hole in the back of your head.
