The Boys Are Back In Town -- Yesterdays
Unorganized Hancock are back! They've got a cool new logo, and a new video, Yesterdays by Wes Montgomery:
It was -- get this -- over sixty degrees, so the boys recorded outside. No, really; it was over sixty degrees, all at the same time, instead of broken into pieces and spread over several days. Farenheit!
Wes Montgomery was such a wonderful and original player. I don't know why my kids have such good taste. I think they're supposed to be playing death metal at flight-deck volume or they'll be thrown out of the garage band union, but they don't show any inclination to annoy us or the neighbors yet.
Speaking of annoying the neighbors, Unorganized Hancock has a gig. There's a converted church in town that has a real stage in it, along with function rooms and so forth, and my boys are appearing there next Friday night: It's called 49 Franklin. (Scroll down to see their promo picture). They're headlining, but they're playing first. The drummer is a pro, but he's got to be in bed by nine, so they're going to blast away for an hour at 7:00 PM. Good luck to the band that has to follow them. How do you follow that?
Many thanks to everyone that's hit the tip jar for the boys, and linked to their videos, and hit the like buttons on YouTube and Facebook. The Heir and The Spare had a difficult couple of weeks, and the love and support they receive from my Intertunnel mob means the world to them. And me. (Special thanks to Malcolm from America's hat) We now have a computer that will play 1080p video (thanks, Cliff E !), and we were able to purchase a big hard drive to put the videos on. The boys have a keyboard now, too, and can both play it some. Look for that soon. The boys are improving by leaps and bounds these days. Me, I don't even know which end of the piano you blow in.
